Honeywell Nylon Introduces Monet Color Technology

Honeywell Nylon, a subsidiary of Morris Township, N.J.-based Honeywell International, has developed the Monet color process, which allows fibers to be dyed in combinations of light, medium and deep shades to produce a subtle chromatic effect of different hues and tones. According to the company, carpets made from fibers dyed using the Monet process appear more rich and luxurious and have more texture and depth than carpets dyed using traditional processes.

Currently, the Monet color process is used exclusively by Blueridge Home, Ellijay, Ga., which features the fibers in a collection of residential carpets made using Honeywell's Anso Caress® Nylon. A division of commercial carpet manufacturer Blue Ridge Industries, Blueridge Home was established in 2002 to provide stylish, performance-driven carpet products for residential applications.

"By partnering with a residential specialty mill such as Blueridge Home, [which] can accommodate the unique styling variations this technology provides, were able to offer unique and differentiated products for Blueridge Home, the dealers they serve and todays fashion-savvy consumers," said Ann Merino, residential merchandising and brand marketing manager, Honeywell Nylon.
