Corterra Fibers Outperform Nylon In ASCR Study

Shell Chemicals, Houston, recently announced the results of a study by The Association of Specialists in Cleaning and Restoration (ASCR) showed that Corterra fibers scored higher on more evaluations of stain removal than the market-leading branded nylon carpet.The ASCRs report showed that both carpets made with Corterra fibers and nylon scored very well for the majority of the stains, but Corterra recorded a score of 4.5 or higher on 85 percent of the evaluations while nylon recorded a score of 4.5 or higher on 67 percent of the evaluations. A rating of 5.0 means that after cleaning there was no visible stain, ratings of 4.0 to 4.5 mean there remains a slight stain not normally visible to a casual observer.The results verify that carpets made with Corterra fibers are well suited for residential and commercial applications, said Tom Rennie, global business manager, carpets, Corterra.Carpets made with Corterra fibers can be easily cleaned with standard carpet cleaning equipment. Unlike topically treated stain resistant nylon, no special procedures are required to clean them.
