SRS - Eco Evolution™ print carpet

SRS is a Stain Resistance System developed by Shaw Industries to fight most common food-based stains. This patented process increases performance and durability under normal cleaning conditions to yield better long-term appearance retention.

This patented process is applied as a bath application during the manufacturing wet process (dyeing). This allows the SRS product to completely encapsulate and chemically bond to the entire fiber bundle in the carpet thus making it much more stain resistant than traditional topical treatments. This process increases performance and durability under normal cleaning conditions.

Printed products treated with SRS have been subjected to rigorous testing. Even through multiple steam cleanings the SRS technology maintained a superior level of repellency.

SRS is an inexpensive method of adding value and performance to patterned carpet. Simply put, the carpet will yield better long-term appearance retention.

SSP® - CYP and tufted carpet

SSP® (Shaw Soil Protection) provides advanced soil protection properties to carpet fibers. When following a scheduled maintenance program, SSP protection provides an improved appearance over the life of the carpet and a more cost-effective total maintenance program. SSP is available exclusively through Shaw Hospitality.

With SSP protection on your floor, you will benefit from:

  • soil retarding properties that deter particles from clinging to fibers
  • assistance in clean up and maintenance of the installation
  • improved appearance over the life of the carpet
  • a more cost-effective total maintenance program
  • SSP soil releasing properties are available in both nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 (continuous or staple yarns). SSP is not a coloring process, allowing you to choose from our many yarn systems.

    SSP gives you a distinct edge in fighting soiling and staining. SSP is available exclusively through Shaw Hospitality.
