Invista Adds Antron® Lumena® Capacity, Product Offerings

Invista, Wichita, Kan., is expanding capacity at its Kingston, Canada, manufacturing plant for the production of Antron® Lumena® solution-dyed nylon 6,6 with TruBlend™, a carpet fiber featuring 30-percent recycled content. The company anticipates that in the future, TruBlend will become a primary polymer platform for the entire Antron Lumena color spectrum.

"We are committed to producing Antron Lumena solution dyed fibers with recycled content that contribute to LEED® [Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design] points," said Diane O'Sullivan, global marketing director, Invista commercial flooring. "The expansion at our Kingston facility will provide additional capacity for our TruBlend fiber offering and allow us to deliver more color options being sought by customers."

In other company news, Invista has added a 900-denier fiber family to the Antron Lumena line. O'Sullivan said the new denier family supports tufting technology innovations and enables expanded styling opportunities.

The company also has added pewter, copper, steel and bronze to its Antron Lumena Glimmer™ accent fiber line, which already offered gold and silver.
