Nylon 6 for Carpet Fiber

Why Nylon 6 for Fiber Applications?

Durable, Colorful, and Easy to Maintain

Fibers made with Nylon 6 are durable, soft, and hold color very well, which means they can be dyed in a wide variety of vibrant colors and will retain these colors after long use and some degree of sun exposure.   

Nylon 6 fibers resists abrasion better than almost any other carpet fiber, and it cleans easily— due to the inherent stain resistance of the polymer and additional stain blocker treatments that can be applied after dyeing and cleanings.  

Stair Fiber
Residential Carpet

Nylon provides the widest style options available in nylon carpet fiber for residential end-uses. Carpets made from nylon are often used in high traffic areas where durability and performance are a concern.

Carpet Fiber Floor
Commercial Carpet

Offering the best performance of any commercial carpet fiber, 100% renewable nylon 6 fibers are used in sustainable buildings with high pedestrian traffic, like retail, hospitality, hospitals and airports.

Astro Turf
Outdoor Carpet & Turf

Used in for its strength, elasticity, and UV resistance, nylon, creates resilient, weatherproof products perfect for exterior rugs, as well as some indoor/outdoor synthetic grass systems.

Nylon 6 Advantages
