Introducing Shaw ClearTouch? Filament PET carpet made from plastic bottles.
Shaw is pleased to introduce a line of carpets featuring the company’s new ClearTouch? BCF PET with recycled content. Like the BCF ClearTouch introduced in 2005, the new ClearTouch is a continuous filament fiber that offers the inherent attributes of polyester as well as exceptional performance characteristics, such as excellent appearance retention and long-term wear. An added benefit of the new fiber is recycled content.
The significance of the new continuous filament ClearTouch is the result of a patent-pending process. Shaw’s ClearTouch filament PET styles are unlike any others in the industry and are the result of superior engineering and craftsmanship. ClearTouch styles are rated for appearance retention according to the CRI industry scale, and all have earned performance ratings high enough to qualify for Shaw’s Texturegard? texture retention warranty.
The new ClearTouch yarn system also boasts exceptional softness. The extra softness is the result of the yarn’s fine-denier filaments. The smaller denier produces the supple touch, while advanced yarn engineering, including optimum twist levels, accounts for the superior durability.
Further differentiating ClearTouch carpets from conventional PET products is the company’s patented R2x? Stain and Soil Resistance System for enhanced protection against spills and tracked-in dirt.
Of special note is that millions of pounds of soft drink and water bottles are now used to manufacture BCF ClearTouch carpets. This patent-pending innovation is unique to standard manufacturing processes of PET BCF fibers.
