Solution-dyed carpet is when a polymer in the form of a pellet, which starts the color of the carpet is extruded into a long strand of single-ply fiber. Therefore, this means that the carpet is never dyed in a solution of color and water. Solution dying is kind of the color of a carrot. When you cut a carrot, the color is orange through and through. The color remains the same throughout the carrot. Therefore, there are some serious benefits to the solution-dyed carpet. For starters, it is one of the most colorfast materials in the industry.
