The products and brands we make at our facilities around the world intersect with your daily life, even though you may not always notice them. This includes the polymers, fibers and resins we make, as well as the brands, trademarks and innovations we take to market for the benefit of everyone.
Since the 1930s, nylon has become an essential part of everyday life. It’s integrated into your clothing, your shoelaces, your carpet and even the air bags that keep you safe. Our nylon products start with the chemical intermediates we produce – think “ingredients” – like adiponitrile (ADN), hexamethylene diamine (HMD) and adipic acid (AA) that help make modern-day clothing, and modern-day life, possible.
One of the key products made from INVISTA adiponitrile (ADN) is nylon 6,6. As a versatile thermoplastic, nylon 6,6 can be melted and shaped to serve many applications, from heat-resistant auto parts to consumer electronics and kitchen appliances. But nylon 6,6 pellets can also be melted and extruded as continuous fibers. Due to their high strength and flexibility, these fibers can be used for everything from pantyhose to tough automotive air bags and durable sportswear.
Over the years, we’ve discovered new ways to turn the byproducts of our primary manufacturing processes into innovative new products. Through DYTEK® Idea Intermediates, we provide the amines used in curing agents for composites and laminates. And our DBE esters® solvents include chemical alternatives used in inks, coatings and adhesives.
While you might not always notice them, our brands and technologies are hard at work making life a little more comfortable for everyone. Garments made with CORDURA® fabric are built to last and hold up to even the most active lifestyles. And our DACRON® fiberfill technology is used in countless sleep products, offering cozier slumbers.
As a global leader in the production of nylon intermediates and polymer resins, INVISTA makes the chemical ingredients – nylon polymers – that go into a diverse range of products. For more than 45 years, these polymers have served as the foundation for millions of different items spanning the automotive, industrial, apparel and consumer electronics industries. And as the need for high-quality nylon polymer continues to rise, these industries and applications continue to grow.
Polymer Grade Propylene (PGP) from INVISTA Houston is distributed to various downstream consumers via our Gulf Coast pipeline network. PGP is a basic chemical building block used to produce a wide range of products including films, plastics and fibers.
At INVISTA, we leverage advanced polymerization technology, robust on-site compounding capabilities, and the strength of our supply chain to deliver high-quality polypropylene in a variety of 100 different grades for applications of all sizes. Our polypropylene is utilized for a number of fabrication processes including extrusion, injection molding, thermoforming, blow molding, biaxially oriented film, fiber spinning, slit tape, extrusion coating and laminating. With a wide range of physical properties, it’s a flexible, attractive material capable of meeting performance demands of medical applications, food and specialty packaging, and more.
At INVISTA, we have a portfolio of advantaged technologies available to license in the nylon 6,6 value chain. Contact us to learn more.
