  Fibres
Carpet manufacturing industry generally uses synthetic or natural fibres.
 
fibre artificiali Synthetic fibres:

The fibres most commonly used in carpet production are man-made.
Among these, we shall point out the acrylic fibres, very similar to the wool, which are obtained from a vinyl by-product, the so-called acrylic nitrile. Colour is added to the melted polymer and it becomes integral part of the fibre.

Such fibres hardly soils, thanks to their scarce absorbency and have a quite low electrostatic charge; they can also be used in combination with wool and have a good resistance to alkaline detergents.
The polyamide fibres, instead, are obtained by polycondensation of acids such as the adipic and the sebacic acids.
The most famous product of this category is the nylon, which is insoluble in ordinary organic solvents such as alcohol and petrol. Similar to the silk, it is resilient and has a good abrasion and wear resistance; it doesn't suffer from moths or moulds attacks. The transmission of static electricity, however, is elevated. The maintenance is minimal and cleaning is simple also using alkaline detergents.
The polypropylene fibres are the result of the polymerization of ethyl in presence of special catalysts meant to get a polymer. They have the feature of a great antistatic power and abrasion resistance.
 
fibre naturali Natural Fibres:

Wool is an animal fibre and it is well known that it derives from several types of sheep, and of other similar animals. It doesn't have any electrostatic power and it has a high thermal insulation. Resilient and extensible, it is absorbent and fire resistant. It fears the alkaline detergents.
Jute is, instead, a vegetable fibre coming from a plant of the Tiliaceae family and it has a yellow colour which can be a pale yellow or a yellow-brown one. It is constituted by cellulose combined with a substance similar to the tannin and it is recommended for the production of carpets for floors subject to great traffic or for rustic furnishings. The knotting of jute is thick, and since it is very absorbent, it fears a lot the dampness and consequently it must not be laid in open or damp places. The coconut fibre is vegetable as well, very hard and derived by the fibrous part of the unripe coconut hull. A coconut carpet is used for rustic environments, or for places submitted to great straining.
