Universal Fibers works down to the most finite details when creating a high-quality carpet fiber. For example, our nylon 6,6 fibers are made with a tighter molecular structure than alternative nylon or polyester products. This tight, symmetrical design provides a strong, dense advantage, helping carpeting keep its shape, ultimately resisting crushing and matting. Premium performance advantages are also achieved by the high melt point and low flammability in type 6,6 nylon fiber, making it resistant to frictional heating that can impact new carpet appearance and wear.

The time and research put into creating Universal Fibers nylon 6,6 products have resulted in carpeting that can handle heavy traffic over years of wear and retain its original structure, style, and color.
