Quick Facts

 Synthetic Fiber Carpets

Synthetic fibers are artificial fibers made by man that come from chemical sources. They are uninterrupted filament fibers so that denotes that they are in long lengths. The Synthetic fiber does not have to be drawn out into thread.

Synthetic fibers structure over 99% of the fiber employed by the carpet industry. Each fiber contains advantages and disadvantages that must be known and must influence the way it is to be employed and made. Some fibers contain extremely low resiliency and only must be manufactured in high-density loop pile constructions to restrict pile flattening. Some other fibers contain the propensity to soak up greasy soils and other oil-derived compounds. It should be highlighted that there is no ideal fiber and carpet is a material that is subjected to implausible exploitation through accidental spills, foot traffic, ecological pollutants, and other exploitation.
