Milliken & Company to Supply Its Tegris Material to Tumi for a New Premium Travel Collection Tegra-Lite

february 27 2012

Milliken & Company informed that it plans to supply its Tegris material to Tumi for a new premium travel collection known as Tegra-Lite. Tegra-Lite combines an industrial aesthetic look, with a design that is 65 percent lighter than fiberglass composites and has up to 15 times the impact resistance of typical thermoplastic composites, far exceeding other comparable pieces of commercial hard-sided cases on the market today.

The new travel collection uses Milliken’s Tegris thermoplastic composite product to enhance the overall performance characteristics of the cases. Working together, the two companies have combined their expertise in performance materials and manufacturing to design, develop, and launch this new Tumi line.

“By blending Milliken’s deep history of science and innovation with Tumi’s reputation for world-class accessories, we are transforming the way consumers think about their bags,” said Sim Skinner, Milliken president, Performance Products.

Due to its excellent stiffness-to-weight ratio and exceptional impact performance, Tegris has a wide variety of useful applications, including use in watercrafts, motorsport vehicles, and protective armor.
