Mohawks Continuum story.....
Continuum’s story is about a cleaner process, cleaner product and cleaner planet...
We're pretty excited here about adding Mohawks Industries new revolutionary Continuum yarn system to our flooring lines. The new PET yarn system is set to offer our customers a cleaner, greener and better performing PET carpet. Their manufacturing process is reported to be very thorough and quite remarkable, yielding a far superior PET yarn than ever before.
Starting with high-grade raw materials, Mohawk uses only superior, FDA-approved PET bottle resin, the highest-grade polymer available for the production of PET bulked continuous filament (BCF) carpets.
Once Continuum carpet is tufted, it is sent through a multi-step process that removes 95 percent of lubricants often left on the fiber in manufacturing. Other PET carpets typically can have as high as 10 times the dirt-attracting oily residue that can make carpet look dingy, while abrasive dirt on the carpet can accelerate wear and crushing.
