Strength of fixation of lint can also be checked by measuring the force required to pull loop. These aspects of strength play an important role in choosing the right carpet for the appropriate scope (intense exposure, average exposure, etc.). Tufted carpeting is always regardless of the type of secondary basis. Secondary basis after applying pinning layer is applied a secondary basis – visible from the inside layer, which will be in direct contact with the floor. Secondary basis a textile fiber or foam latex. It gives the carpet more quality – resistance to shrinkage, elasticity, durability, sound and heat insulation, resistance slip. The following types of secondary basis: natural jute, jute, synthetic, latex, felt, thread and some other basis. Natural Jute – an environmentally friendly material that is used for temporary laying the floor.
Has several disadvantages. With prolonged use of jute fibers are abrasion and destruction of the primer. When moisture in natural jute it first, shrink, which leads to changes in linear dimensions of carpet (on the surface appear * waves * and folds), and secondly, probably rot mold, the expansion of threads (which eventually again lead to the destruction of primer and respectively, the weakening of pinning threads). Artificial jute is usually made of polypropylene and rarely mixed synthetic fibers. Its advantage compared with natural jute is humidity. When moisture no change occurs, the material does not shrink, which allows carpet to maintain its size. No abrasions, no degradable, etc. However, be aware that at very frequent cleaning wet vacuum can mold and peeling of jute from the base coating, and therefore must be fully dried coating before the next harvest, or apply dry cleaning powerful vacuum cleaner.
