Carrots are Better
Carrots are Better Than Radishes When It Comes to Carpet
What do carrots and radishes have to do with your new carpet? Everything.
Carpet is made up of a lot of carpet fibers. Over time the carpet will experience wear and tear from walking, running, and roughhousing on the carpet, then add in the beating carpet takes when cleaning the floor. Having a solution dyed fiber whose color is all the way through the fiber, like a carrot, is better than a surface dyed fiber whose color is only on the surface, like a radish.
The benefit of having the color all the way through the fiber is the color of the carpet lasts longer. It resists stains, fading, and wear and tear better. Surface dyed fibers become dull over time because the color is worn away.
All Phenix carpets feature solution dyed fibers. A solution dyed fiber's color is all the way through the fiber, like a carrot.
Phenix creates our own fibers in McAdenville, NC, a town also known as Christmas Town USA.
We create two types of solution dyed fibers:
SureSoftSDN™ - A special solution dyed cationic nylon fiber.
SureSoftSD™ - A solution dyed polyester fiber.
Solution Dyed Cationic Nylon
Livable luxury is the best way to describe SureSoftSDN™ carpet fibers. This state of the art fiber provides inherent stain, soil, and fade resistance while maintaining superior protection for your home. Bring on the kids and pets, this durable nylon fiber will bounce back time and time again to ensure your carpet looks newer longer.
1. Commercial-grade stain protection in a residential carpet.
Our SureSoftSDN™ cationic nylon fibers repel acid-based stains. No worries about spills like wine, spaghetti sauce or pet stains.
2. Color through the entire fiber, not just on the surface.
Or SureSoftSDN™ fibers are Solution Dyed, meaning they have the dye all the way through the fiber, like a carrot. Which means no fading and after years of wear from cleaning and wear and tear, the color of the
carpet will still shine through.
