Bayer Develops Sustain™ Protective Carpet Finish

Pittsburgh-based Bayer Chemicals Corp. now offers Sustain™, a non-fluorochemical protective finish for carpets, rugs and other textile floor coverings. The patent-pending finish is compatible with both nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 residential and commercial grades of carpet. According to Brad Potter, home textiles marketing manager, Textile Processing Chemicals business unit, the finish is durable to home launderings and is less expensive than conventional fluorochemical stain and soil systems.

"The innovation of Sustain technology is that it offers the carpet excellent stain resistance without the use of fluorochemicals," Potter said.
