Camel Keystone Plus Polyester Carpet by Dream Weaver is a 25-ounce Soft Pure Color Carpet. In other words, Pure Color is Dream Weaver’s proprietary brand of solution-dyed fiber. Solution dying is kind of like 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. Solution-dyed carpet is a polymer in the form of a pellet. This pellet is already the color of the carpet. The pellet is then extruded into the carpet fiber where it is never dyed.
There are some serious benefits to a solution-dyed carpet. For starters, it is one of the most colorfast materials in the industry. For example, spaces that get lots of natural sunlight, won’t fade. Also, you could use a 50/50 solution of bleach and water to spot clean the carpet. Because it starts the color, it will not fade.
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. Of course, this helps identify products with very low emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). In the 2000s CRI launched the Green Label Plus Programs. This added Carpet Adhesives, and Cushion. This helped enhance programs by setting a higher standard for indoor air quality. As a result, 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.
