refreshfiber® from Universal Fibers® now offers post-consumer recycled carpet fiber and permanent stain resistance, among other key benefits, in addition to being an award-winning example of the company’s EarthSmart® commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. Permanent stain resistance represents a key benefit for carpet manufacturers, architects and designers, facility managers and end use customers who demand the highest standards in performance and aesthetics. Other features and benefits include low-weight/high-bulk fiber and permanent antistatic performance.
Due to the integration of post-consumer recycled carpet fiber diverted from U.S. landfills, the use of carpet made with refreshfiber® can aid project teams in achieving LEED objectives, as well as complying with regulatory goals regarding the reduction of solid waste. “Sustainability is important, but combining sustainability and exceptional performance is our true goal,” said Bill Goodman, Universal Fibers’ executive vice president of sales and marketing.
