Alaskan Air Because We Can Remnant 5795 by Shaw is a 45-ounce polyester. There are several polyesters spun fiber products on the market today. But, Shaw uses Clear Touch technology. Clear Touch carpets are made of PET plastic from recycled soda bottles. It creates an eco-friendly product that is also the softest PET product in the industry. You can also relax when those spills occur! Clear Touch carpets include a lifetime stain warranty, R2X stain, and soil resistance. Clear Touch carpets contain a minimum of 25% recycled content and our Clear Touch Platinum Carpets contain a minimum of 50% Post-Consumer Recycled Content.
R2X is Shaw’s industry-leading stain and soil resistance technology. R2X chemistry is molecularly bonded during the manufacturing process. This provides long-term stain resistance. This technology won’t wear off even after repeated cleaning. Spills and messes easily stay on top of the carpet fiber like a bubble. This gives you time to simply wipe away the mess.
Today, indoor air quality is an important environmental consideration. Especially since we spend approximately 90 percent of our time indoors. In 1992 The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) launched its Green Label Plus Program. They tested carpet, padding, and adhesives to identify products with very low emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). In the 2000s CRI launched the Green Label Plus Programs for Carpet, Adhesives, and Cushion. These enhanced programs by setting a higher standard for indoor air quality. This helped customers identify products with low emitting VOCs. Using scientifically established standards, the Green Label Plus Program symbolizes commitment. Look for the CRI Green Label Plus logo when shopping for flooring.
What is a remnant? Carpet remnants are exactly as it sounds. A small piece left over from a larger roll of carpeting. These small pieces are only enough for a small room or an area rug. You can square it off and cut it to any desired length and width to create any size area rug you desire. You can take a larger remnant and cut it into multiple matching area rugs. They can be bound to create custom area rugs.
