CARPET FIBERS:

Nylon

Nylon is the most common of all carpet fibers, and its high durability makes it a popular choice for areas of the home that receive high foot traffic. Resistant to most dirt, mildew and moisture, this fiber is also known for its ease of maintenance and non-allergenic properties.
  • Durable, resilient.
  • Abrasion-resistant.
  • Versatile in coloration possibilities.
  • Favorably priced.
  • Must be treated to be stain and soil resistant.
Produced as a solution-dyed fiber or white yarn to-be-dyed. Accounts for 65% of all face fibers in carpet.

PET Polyester

This is an excellent fiber choice for the budget conscious. Polyester shares many of nylon’s nonallergenic, moisture and wear resistant properties but lacks the same degree of durability.
  • Color clarity.
  • Colorfastness.
  • Resistant to water-soluble stains.
  • Noted for luxurious "hand."
DEFINITION: Made from terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol. Offered primarily as a staple product, although some BCF in being produced. Used in residential and commercial applications. Manufactured from recycled plastic bottles.

PTT Polyester

Fibers are extruded from a new generation of polymer giving it exceptional durability along with built-in stain resistance, color clarity, colorfastness, luxurious softness, and ease of maintenance.
  • Permanent Stain Protection
  • Wear Resistant
  • Ease of Maintenance
  • Luxurious Softness
  • Quick Drying
DEFINITION: A completely new form of polyester made from the combination of 1.3 propanediol (PDO) and terephthalic acid (TPA). PTT polyesters # properties are derived from a unique semi-crystalline molecular structure. Used currently in residential applications and as BCF.

Olefin or Polypropylene

This fiber was first used in carpets designed for use outdoors and in spaces with high levels of moisture and humidity. Color-fastness, resilience, and resistance to water damage, mildew and piling are important benefits of this fiber. Polypropylene fiber is also recognized for a luxurious appearance and outstanding softness.
  • Resists fading.
  • Inherently stain resistant.
  • Limited color selection.
  • Generates low levels of static electricity.
  • Chemical, moisture, and stain resistant.
  • Favorably priced
DEFINITION: Fiber-forming substance of any long-chain synthetic polymer composed of at least 85%, by weight, of ethylene, propylene, or other olefin units. Offered primarily as BCF with some staple product available. Primarily sold as solution-dyed or pre-dyed fiber. Can be engineered for outdoor applications.
