THREAD STRUCTURE: WHICH IS THE MOST DURABLE?
The threads used in carpet weaving differ not only in the material from which they are made, but also in the structure. You've probably noticed that the pile has a different texture, sometimes it is fluffy, and sometimes it is curly. So, what's the secret?
In order to obtain a thin and strong synthetic thread, special granules are melted in an extruder at a high temperature and immediately colored. That is why the colors of synthetic carpets do not fade. After passing through the small holes of the filters, the liquid turns into threads. This fiber is widely used to produce fabrics for clothing and other needs. By the way, the “SAG” company is the only one in Central Asia and one of the few in the post-Soviet space where the entire carpet weaving cycle is concentrated. That is, all processes, starting from the production of yarn and ending with the packaging of the final carpet products, are carried out in the enterprise itself.
Moreover, the fiber is diverse in structure. For example, Heat-Set threads are produced using an additional manufacturing technology. BCF threads (untreated thread) are twisted around their axis and stretched at the same time. Then the thread is heated. When it cools it it stays in that shape. And here's the result - a very durable twisted thread.
The Heat-Set fiber is made from Friese. During the manufacturing process, the Heat-Set thread is twisted to a curly condition. Such carpet lasts for a very long time. Moreover, it is resistant to abrasion and creasing. The pile of the frieze carpets hides dirt and footprints. Despite all the advantages, Friese flooring is relatively inexpensive. They are easy to clean, so it is recommended to lay them in high traffic areas such as corridor, living room and children’s room.
