Highly durable, nylon commercial carpet
fibre, with recycled content which is third-party certified by
Invista Antron fibres range from 5-90%
post-industrial recycled nylon, as certified by Scientific
Certification Systems (SCS), which results in a lower embodied
energy, and less waste production than other available nylon
fibres. The fibre is used in the manufacture of Invista's
Lumena and Legacy ranges, which are suitable for
commercial carpet manufacture for use in corporate, commercial,
education, government, healthcare, and hospitality
Lumena is a solution dyed fibre available in over 140
individual colours. It is manufactured into textured, patterned,
loop pile carpet for commercial applications. Legacy
is a white dyable fibre available in a wide variety of fibre
deniers, lustres, and colours. Legacy can be
manufactured into virtually any carpet construction i.e. from solid
colour cut piles to textured loop piles and patterns.
Lumena and Legacy are available in three
grades of durability ranging from heavy duty to moderate wear and
tear. The treated monofilament fibre optimises the durability
of the carpet in two ways. Monofilament fibres have superior stain
resistance to other fibre types and treatment with
DuraTech increases soil resistance. Reducing soiling and
staining lowers the lifecycle maintenance demands and costs and
increases carpet lifespan.
The recycled content of Legacy and Lumena
fibres are third party certified by SCS. Antron Legacy
BCF fibres are 90% post-industrial recycled content and
available on a special order basis. Certain Antron
Lumena colours are 90% post-industrial recycled content nylon.
Availability of recycled content fibre needs to be confirmed.
Manufacture of Antron Lumena BCF denier 1245, Type C
with 5% post-industrial recycled content is now standard practice.
Virtually all colours of this fibre contain recycled content
