Dream Weaver and Engineered Floors showcase nylon products at TISE 2015

Screen Shot 2015-01-19 at 10.27.00 AMDalton—Dream Weaver Carpet and Engineered Floors will introduce its 2015 line of nylon carpet, PureColor Solution Dyed Soft Nylon fiber, at The International Surface Event 2015 being held Jan. 20-23 in Las Vegas.

This new line continues with the same technology and benefits as PureColor Solution Dyed PET and PureColor PureSoft Cashmere Solution Dyed PET fibers. Engineered Floors will introduce up to 12 products in varying color palettes, weights, styles and textures under the Dream Weaver brand at booth #S6725.

“We see this as the future of nylon carpet,” said James Lesslie, assistant to the chairman at Engineered Floors. “With PureColor Soft Nylon, the color goes all the way through the fiber, just like a carrot. Our solution dye technology has revitalized the polyester carpet market producing carpets with industry leading quality, performance and design options. We are now extending our solution dyed manufacturing expertise to soft nylon fibers, but unlike the majority of nylon products currently on the market, ours has built-in stain resistance throughout the polymer. With stain resistance locked into the fiber, a consumer will never have to worry about the stain protection washing or wearing off.”

Attendees can also preview new merchandising displays as well as a new PureColor Soft Nylon video which highlights the company’s newest carpet production facility, the SAM plant.

The first and possibly most important reason is it is solution dyed. “This allows us to create unique colorations—combinations that cannot be achieved by piece dying as we’re barber poling it. This carpet has the appearance of a solid but it really isn’t.” Continue reading Engineered Floors brings soft to solution-dyed polyester
