Let me CLUE you all in on SmartStrand, SmartStrand triexta, Is the newest fiber in 40 years, You can not compare it with anything else. Now their is Smartstrand BLEND with poly which you can walk and talk about all day, The Triexta is made by Dupont, One of the OLDEST 6.6 nylon manufactures out there, The maker of Kevlar and nomex. The SmartStrand Triexta, will be in alot of your NEW Inspection Manuals that are in the process of being written, Also SmartStrand Triexta by Dupont id being speced for alot of your newer Comerecial jobs. I will also let you know, SHAW used to RAVE about this PDO many years ago, I beleive it was called (Cortella) Shell used to produce the PDO for them, Untill Du pont won the ruling on SmartStrand Triexta Case. Lets hear now, and correct me if I am wrong......

Mohawk's triexta carpet fiber was recently granted approval by the Federal Trade Commission as a subclass of polyester. Being a polyester, it still has a lot of proving to do.

Not saying it's not a good product. But 4 or 5 years ago, when I was still installing a lot, polyester was still junk. If this is better, it will have to prove itself to retailers and installers.
