how carpeted mats are manufactured
How Carpeted Mats are Manufactured
  • 3 Major Components of Mats
          • Yarn
          • Substrate
          • Rubber
the nylon yarn
The Nylon Yarn
  • Acid Dyed or Solution Dyed Options
  • High Twist Yarn
  • Brushes soil and dirt from the soles of shoes
  • Allows dirt to filter to the base of the carpet
  • Prevents crushing of the carpet
acid dyed nylon yarn
Acid Dyed Nylon Yarn
  • Starts as white yarn
  • Color is added after the yarn is produced
  • Vibrant colors
  • Excellent color and wash-fastness
  • Protected by Stain Stopper Treatment
solution dyed nylon yarn
Solution Dyed Nylon Yarn
  • Color is added when the yarn is extruded
  • Excellent color-fastness when the mats are exposed to direct sunlight
  • Excellent wash-fastness when the mats are exposed to high temperature washings
product knowledge static dissipative feature
Product KnowledgeStatic Dissipative Feature
  • Static electricity creates safety hazards
  • The nylon yarn contains carbon filaments that absorb the static charges
  • Regular washings will not diminish its effectiveness

product knowledge non woven polyester substrate
Product KnowledgeNon-Woven Polyester Substrate

The Backbone of the mat!

  • The yarn is tufted into the substrate
  • This substrate creates a stronger bond between the carpet and the rubber
  • Reduces fraying on the edges of the mat
  • Resistant to high temperature drying
  • Reduces linting
  • Prevents rippling

  • Acid Dyed and Solution Dyed Options
  • Computer Generated process
  • Yarn is tufted (sewn into the substrate)
digital printing process
Digital Printing Process
  • Creates 3D images
  • Prints fine detail
  • Up to 300 colors
  • Colors can be phased in
  • Fully launderable
  • Sizes to 6’ x 40’
product knowledge 100 nitrile rubber backing
Product Knowledge100% Nitrile Rubber Backing
  • Slip resistant
  • Makes the product washable
  • Nitrile rubber is oil/grease resistant
  • Reinforced borders minimize tears
vulcanization process
Vulcanization Process
  • After the carpet is tufted it is vulcanized to the rubber.
  • Reinforced rubber strips placed around the perimeter of the mats to strengthen the product
  • Various rubber backing options are available.
rubber backing options
Rubber Backing Options
  • Standard Mill Thickness – 52 mils in the body / 94 mils on the border
  • 65 Mil Option – 65 mils in the body / 107 mils on the border
  • 90 Mil Option – 90 mils throughout
  • Picture Frame Option
  • Suction Back Option
mat trimming process
Mat Trimming Process
  • After the rubber backing is applied the mats are trimmed
  • Curved Corner Option
mat perforation process
Mat Perforation Process
  • All mats are perforated to reduce the moisture in the extraction process
  • Less moisture – less drying times
mat shipment times
Mat Shipment Times
  • All mats are rolled for ease of handling at your facility
  • Standard Orders less than 3 working days with or without property marks
  • Logo mats within 5 working days
