Better Construction Makes All the Difference
Bulked Continuous Filament (BCF)
Continuous strands of nylon are formed into yarn. They are also texturized to increase their bulk and to change from straight into kinked or curled fiber.
Each carpet fiber is wound around itself to make the carpet pile more resilient. The tighter the twist, the more the carpet will resist crushing, matting and changes in texture.
After the fiber is twisted, it is treated with heat to lock in the twist. The result: carpet fibers that won’t easily unravel or crush under heavy foot traffic.
The heat-set fiber is fed through needles and then stitched or tufted into the primary carpet backing. The density of a carpet is determined by how much yarn is used and how close the tufts are to one another.
The tufted carpet is saturated with liquid dye then treated with a fixation solution and dried.
The Advanced Teflon® Repel System
The dyed carpet is now saturated with anti-stain polymers. Then it undergoes a fixation process and is dried again. Next, a unique Teflon® solution is applied. The result is carpet that has the long lasting ability to repel dirt and resist stains.
