Technical Information

What is DuPont™ Sontara®?

DuPont™ Sontara® is an exceptionally strong, nonwoven textile sheet fabric created by DuPont hydroentangling technology, known as spunlacing.

The Science behind DuPont™ Sontara®

Imagine shooting thousands of high-pressure, needle-like jets of water into blended fibers. Now, picture the fibers, entangled by the jets, first dried, then wound and finished, creating a super-strong, durable, tear-resistant three-dimensional sheet structure known as spunlaced fabric.

Any combination of fibers can be entangled, including polyester, rayon, acrylic, nylon and wood pulp, creating virtually any type of fabric required, from absorbent to repellent, for targeted use in many applications.
