Guarantee for a quality carpet
A carpet is the guarantee of a decorative floor soft to the touch and sound + heat-insulated. It is composed of fibers produced from different ways ; which generates a wide range of prices. The carpet is an excellent floor covering in bedrooms, living rooms as well as passing areas such as corridors and stairs.
The yarn quality importance
Single or assembled twisted yarns (BCF or Spun) are very often used when manufacturing woven and tufted wall to wall carpets because they allow numerous technical and above all design possibilities: it allows increasing the thickness of a yarn, gather several yarns of different natures, combine yarns of several colours or yarns with graduated dyeing affinities.
In general, these yarns are processed in a special way, that is to say the heat-setting, in order to develop the volume of the yarns and to make sure that the new properties obtained from the twisting remain permanent. Twist is set at a high temperature in autoclave or in a continuous process.
These treatments require a very high stringency in the procedure. A heat-set yarn in a wall to wall carpet is a guarantee that the velvet aspect will last because it reinforces its resistance to upsetting deformation and to plunger puncture, its resistance to wear, its dyeing affinity, its dimensional stability and its design. The yarn tips are "individualized" on the surface, which gives the velvet a particular grained aspect.
