Closing the loop
using Econyl® fibres
Victoria Carpets is committed to changing its mindset when it comes to producing more sustainable products.
With ECONYL® regenerated nylon, we take one step further in our ongoing journey to reduce waste.
Through a radical regeneration and purification process, nylon waste from materials such as fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic is recycled right back to its original purity. That means the ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as fossil-based nylon.
Hard Wearing Performance
Victoria Carpets’ quality synthetic carpets are due to setting and maintaining consistently high construction standards, ensured by regular testing. In addition, all our carpets undergo independent testing through the Carpet Institute’s ACCS for performance and emissions. The excellent results achieved by our products demonstrate their resilience and excellent performance under heavy foot traffic.
Victoria Carpets’ ranges are both stain and soil resistant, so cleaning and maintenance is easy. However, there is no absolute guarantee that synthetic carpets won’t stain if spills are not promptly attended to or if they contain strong dyes (refer to the ‘Stain Removal’ section).
The fibre cross-section in Victoria Carpets’ synthetic yarns is shaped to ensure that less soil is deposited around the fibres. This makes any soil that does adhere to the fibres less visible, and easier to clean.
Comparing solution dyed synthetic fibres and piece dyed fibres is like comparing a carrot and a radish. Piece dyed commodity fibres are extruded as a white yarn and dyed after tufting. Its colouring is more like a radish – coloured on the surface and white underneath; this results in an inferior colourfast performance. Solution dyed fibres have the colour inherently incorporated into the fibre during the extrusion process – much like a carrot is orange all the way through – resulting in a superior colourfast performance.
