Mohawk leads innovation in sustainable flooring with SmartStrand®
carpet with DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced polymer. In a
partnership with DuPont, this carpet exclusively offers fiber made
with Bio-PDO™ (the key Sorona® ingredient), which is produced
from corn sugar.
By utilizing this new ingredient, 37 percent of Sorona® is being
made from renewable resources. This marks the first time that a
luxuriously soft carpet offers durability and stain protection, while
also making less of an environmental impact.
Why Is SmartStrand Environmentally Smart?
DuPont™ Sorona® plays a major role in the worldwide objective of a renewable economy and represents a
new frontier in sustainability. This carpet is environmentally smart because:
- The production of Sorona® polymer requires 30 percent less energy than the production of an equal
amount of nylon.
- Greenhouse gas emissions from the production of Sorona® are 63 percent lower than nylon
- This energy reduction results in approximately one gallon of gasoline saved per every seven square
yards of carpet.
The superior stain resistance of SmartStrand® carpet is engineered into the fiber and will never wear or
wash off, meaning consumers will never need to retreat the carpet with stain protectors after steam cleaning.
And this engineered-in stain resistance reaches new levels of protection, allowing tough stains such as
mustard, red wine, and cherry Kool-Aid® to be removed simply with warm water and a mild detergent, or with
Mohawk FloorCare™ Essentials. The fiber even resists discoloration from bleach. Call and talk to one of our
sales staff for more details. We even stock some SmartStrand!!
Bamboo Fusion is strand woven bamboo flooring, derived directly from the pole of the Moso bamboo plant,
which grows wild in the mountainous regions of China. Bamboo is technically a grass and is one of the
strongest materials in the world. It has a tensile strength superior to cold rolled steel and a compressive
strength higher than concrete.
The patented stranding process used to create this product compresses and encapsulates the cell structure
of the bamboo creating an extremely dense, durable and stable floor; a floor that will outperform and outlast
traditional old growth hardwoods like oak, maple and cherry.
Bamboo is recognized as an environmentally friendly, sustainable and renewable resource. The pole of the
plant grows to full maturity in 5 years and if not harvested dies and a new pole regenerates from the rhizome
of the plant. One culm can produce up to 200 poles in its life cycle.
There is virtually no waste or pollution in the harvesting and production of strand bamboo. Block factories
are strategically located near the plantations and forests where Moso bamboo grows. Virtually 100% of the
pole is utilized in the manufacturing process, and the limited waste product is used by other industries or to
generate the power that operates the factories.
Superior performance combined with exceptional environmental sustainability, creates Bamboo Fusion as a
uniquely smart and responsible flooring choice for both residential and commercial installations.
