Polypropylene fiber is the most common of all synthetic fibers used in manufacture of luxury carpets. Almost 90% of all woven synthetic luxury carpets are made from polypropylene. The fiber responds well to heat treatment, polypropylene possesses antistaticity. And the biggest plus of polypropylene is the fact that dye is added to raw material while producing fibers. Yarn, dyed in this way, retains color throughout the entire lifetime.
The most popular fiber quality for manufacture of synthetic luxury carpets of new generation is HeatSet. Luxury carpets made from this fiber are felt like wool carpets.
For fiber HeatSet producing BCF yarn is subjected to heat treatment, is stretched and twisted around its axis (the more twist, the better the quality, but more expensive price). The fiber HeatSet has better anti-static properties and is longer in operation than the fiber BCF.
The service life of luxury carpets from polypropylene fibers HeatSet is on average from 5 to 10 years (depending on product quality and intensity of exploitation).
The third generation of polypropylene yarn is a thread Frise. This thread is produced from HeatSet fibers, which are twisted by two threads then given S and Z-shaped curls treated at very high temperatures and humidity. Two twisted threads and mechanical and thermal treatment makes the structure of the yarn even more similar to the structure of wool, yarn acquires the original effect of "fuzziness". This fiber is slightly thicker in diameter than fibers HeatSet, has a greater elasticity and by mixing shades of one color there is an effect of richer colors. Latest technologies of fibers production enabled to corrugate woollen yarn, and receive, thus, woollen spun yarn.
