March 01, 2019

Kennesaw, Ga.— Invista launched Antron Lumena DNA fiber, a nylon fiber system with built-in, long-lasting protection against top performance attributes — stain, soil and texture — designed for a more effective and efficient clean, helping end users reduce their total cost of carpet ownership, the company said.

“While Antron fiber has a reputation for long-lasting durability and performance, our research consistently suggests that the market also wants flooring that is easier to clean,” said Denise Silbert, North American marketing and business development leader for the Antron brand, Invista. “We are thrilled to be bringing this product to the commercial flooring industry. Simply put, Antron Lumena DNA has all of the technology built into the fiber, eliminating the need to apply topical protective treatments during the manufacturing process and providing a longer-lasting, more effective clean.”

When compared to competitive nylon carpets, the company said, Antron Lumena DNA fiber can last up to 75% longer. Additional performance benefits of carpets made of the fiber when compared to carpets made of competitive nylon fiber include: Texture retention – up to two times better; stain resistance – up to ten times better; soil resistance – 65% better; and fade resistance – up to three times better.

Antron Lumena carpet fiber will transition to Antron Lumena DNA fiber, and will be offered in rich neutrals and vibrant accents with nearly 300 on-trend color options.

“One of the drivers behind creation of this fiber innovation is the desire to help facilitate a cleaner environment for the occupants of commercial spaces. Building off our high-performance carpet fibers, we’re holding ourselves to a higher standard by creating solutions that put people first,” said Silbert. “Antro Lumena DNA fiber contributes to a clean, wellbeing-focused environment which often promotes increased occupant productivity.”
