Nylon Commercial Carpets

Nylon carpet fibers are made from petroleum. As a carpet fiber, nylon is the predominant fiber used in commercial carpeting today.

The advantages of nylon fibers in commercial carpets are:

  • Stand up to foot traffic – nylon fibers have good tensile strength
  • Great for styling -  nylon fibers can be twisted and heat set to get many different appearances for styling.
  • Stain resistant – nylon fibers can be modified to hide soil and can be treated to resist staining.
  • Wide Range Color Choices – nylon carpeting can be either “piece dyed”, “yarn dyed” or “solution dyed” and this allows for many different styling choices.
