Carpet is a very common arrangement in modern life, but there are so many types of carpets that people often don't know how to choose. What are the types of carpets? What are the characteristics of different types of carpets?
Pure wool carpets: China's pure wool carpets are made of local sheep wool, which has long fibers, high tension, good elasticity, luster, and slightly thick and strong fibers. It is a high-quality raw material for weaving carpets in the world. At present, some manufacturers have blended Chinese native sheep wool with imported (such as New Zealand) wool fibers to make use of the characteristics of imported wool fibers such as fine fibers and high gloss, and achieved good results. Pure wool carpets are expensive and are mostly used in living rooms and bedrooms of high-end villas.
Chemical fiber carpet: Also known as synthetic carpet, it can be divided into four types: nylon, polypropylene, polyester and acrylic. Nylon carpet is the most common and most commonly used by us. Its biggest feature is its strong wear resistance, and at the same time it overcomes the shortcomings of pure wool carpets that are easy to corrode and mildew; Higher than other chemical fiber carpets.
Silk carpet: It is a high-grade floor and wall decoration, which condenses the wisdom of craftsmen, has excellent practical value and collection value, and is expensive.
Plastic or rubber carpet: It is made of polyvinyl chloride resin, plasticizer and other auxiliary materials, which are uniformly mixed and molded. Although the texture is thin, the hand feels hard, it is greatly affected by the temperature, and it is easy to age, but this material is bright in color, and its moisture resistance, corrosion resistance, insect resistance and scrubability are all improved, especially it has good flame retardancy. and low price advantage. It is waterproof, non-slip, and easy to clean. It is usually placed in shopping malls, hotels, housing gates and bathrooms.
The yarn of the loop pile carpet is tufted on the main base fabric to form an irregular surface effect. Due to the tight tuft rods, the loop pile carpet is suitable for areas with frequent trampling. It is not only wear-resistant but also easy to maintain. The loop pile The loops of the carpet are cut to form a cut pile carpet. The appearance of the cut pile carpet is very smooth, and the velvet feel of the surface is also greatly improved. At the same time, it also integrates appearance and performance well, but it is not as good as loop pile carpet in terms of wear resistance. As the name suggests, the circle-cut carpet is a combination of cut pile and loop pile.
Handmade carpets are made of fine wool and hand-woven. The work of weaving the carpet requires two rounds of each warp thread to tie a knot, so that the woven carpet is delicate and strong. There are also two types of woven carpets and tufted carpets, each with its own characteristics. Weaving carpet is the application of manual carpet technology to mechanized production, so that the carpet structure is relatively firm, and the pattern is rich; tufted carpet is made by tufting on the base fabric.
There are many types of carpets with different characteristics. For example, blended carpets are made by adding a certain proportion of chemical fibers to pure wool fibers. Because synthetic fibers are mixed in the blended carpet, the price is lower and the performance is improved.
