Branded Carpet Fiber
Branded carpet fiber is a
popular term in carpet manufacturing. There are many brands of
nylon on the market today. Many times, yarn is referred to as branded on
who the fiber manufacturer is. Branded simply means that a
"brand" name has been registered in the U.S. Trademark and
Patent office for that yarn. Yarn may also be referred to as unbranded
if the actual yarn make-up is the same as the branded yarn, but is not
marketed as such. In this case, the price of the "unbranded"
yarn is less than the "branded" yarn.
In recent years the makers of branded carpet fiber, particularly
nylon fiber, have been marketing themselves directly to
the consumer using performance brands like Stainmaster,
Crush-resister, and Wear-Dated. You'll find these names and
others on labels fixed on the back of many samples you
view in the course of your shopping. They may warrant the
carpet against staining, soiling, matting, and crushing
for five or even ten years. Many warranties are also
offered by the carpet manufacturers.
Branded carpet fiber usually indicates additional product innovation and state-of-the-art
technology as well as stringent performance testing.
Solutia Wear-Dated®, and
Allied-Signal Anso® are examples of branded nylons.
