Carpets of Antron® 6,6 fiber have hollow shapes that do a better job of hiding soil while also making it easier to lift the soil when cleaning. In fact, carpets of Antron® nylon can have 65% better soil resistance than carpets of the leading competitive nylon.
The tighter molecular structure of type 6,6 offers another benefit – better defense against staining. Due to its lower permeability, type 6,6 slows down the diffusion of stains, allowing more time to clean up. Carpets of Antron® Lumena™ nylon can have up to 10x better stain resistance than carpets of the leading competitive solution dyed nylon.
The molecular bonds in type 6,6 nylon are stronger than those in type 6 and they are harder to break. As a result, type 6,6 fibers have more resistance to deformation and heat. That resistance has benefits for building owners. Your carpet shouldn’t take compression from foot traffic by lying down. Carpets of Antron® nylon can have 2x better texture retention than carpets of the leading competitive nylon.
