There are few products that can boost the same revolutionary attributes as SmartStrand with DuPont Sorona. Smartstrand carpets are made with 37 % renewably sourced ingredients. A large portion of the DuPont Sorona polymer is derived from corn and production of Smartstand carpet uses 30% less energy than an equal amount of nylon carpet. Greenhouse gas emissions from the production of DuPont Sorona are 63% lower than those from nylon manufacturing. The energy reduction results in approximately one gallon of gasoline save per every seven square yards of carpet. Not to mention the Federal Trade Commission recognized SmartStrand’s Triexta carpet fiber as a unique fiber structure, the first in over 50 years. In fact, SmartStrand’s superior stain resistance never washes off since it is built in to molecular level of Triexta itself.
INVISTA’s Stainmaster nylon 6,6 carpets have been proven to last up to 50% long than other carpets, thus extending their usable life. This results in less carpet going to the landfills and reduces the need for premature recycling. INVISTA operates the first third-party certified industry program to reclaim and recycle carpet in the nation. Launched in 1991, the program reclaims post-consumer carpet in certain areas, regardless of manufacturer or fiber type, including Type 6 and Type 6,6 nylon. Over 65 million pounds of post-consumer carpet have been reclaimed.
Nylon fiber – whether Type 6 or Type 6,6 nylon – is both recyclable back into carpet fiber or other high-value products like carpet cushions, carpet backing and other end uses. Recycling centers may not be available in all areas.
Stainmaster carpet styles that earn the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) Indoor Air Quality Green Label Plus (GLP) certification indicates the carpet has been tested by an independent certified laboratory and meet stringent criteria for low chemical emissions
