KORTEKS manufactures polyester yarns for use in carpets that are excellent alternatives to or may be combined with the acrylic, polypropylene, and bulk continuous filament (BCF) yarns normally used in carpet-making. In addition to ecru, dope-dyed and bobbin dyed versions are also available on request. The yarns may be made in single color or as a blend of several.
Our carpet yarns are suitable for use both in the foundation and in the creation of patterns. When used as a pile yarn together with acrylics, post-weaving heat treatment can be used to create embossed surface effects and patterns since the polyester yarns will not be affected the same way that the acrylics are.
In shaggy carpeting, twisted and fixed colored polyester carpet yarns may be used together with polypropylene and BCF yarns. In such cases, the polypropylene will retain all of its volume while the colored polyester yarns will retain all of their luster and durability.
