The measure of how long your carpet will look and feel good. Ideally,
carpet will retain its original texture and appearance for years to
come. Durability depends on finding the right balance of three important
factors defined below:
During carpet manufacturing, natural or synthetic fiber is converted
to yarn and tufted, or locked into a backing to form the pile or surface
that you walk on. There are five major types of carpet fiber - nylon
6,6, nylon 6, polypropylene (olefin), polyester, and wool; the most
popular being nylon.
Ideal for carpeting, nylon 6,6 is a man-made fiber
that is wear-resistant (soil and stain resistant). Its natural properties
allow for a very wide range of colors and color blends and the newest
fibers offer the look and feel of wool, but with much less maintenance
and expense. All STAINMASTER® carpets are made of 100% premium
nylon 6,6 fiber with soil and stain protection not found in other
The twist of the fiber is the way the fiber
filaments are spun into yarn, and how the yarn is in turn twisted
upon itself. Twist is usually locked into the fiber with a steam
or heat-setting. The tighter the twist, the more the carpet will
resist changes in appearance and texture. All STAINMASTER® carpet
construction is conducted under strict twisting specifications.
Density describes the amount of pile in the carpet and how close
the tufts are to one another. In general, the more dense the carpet
the better the quality. Check density by pressing your fingers on
the carpet and trying to reach the backing. It will be difficult to
reach the backing of a very dense carpet. With the tufts facing outward,
bend the carpet into a U shape to see how much of the carpet backing
shows. The less backing you see, the more dense the carpet.
