Loop pile can be cut at the tips to create a cut pile. When this is constructed, fibers are twisted to ensure durability. Twisted or turned, fibers resist matting and crushing.
This twist is especially important with cut pile styles since the ends of fibers are exposed. TPI, or turns per inch, is noted on cut-pile brands. Most carpeting has up to a 6.0 TPI. Saxony is the most popular cut pile style. The fibers that make up this traditional, soft carpeting have an even height.
Nylon has been the favored synthetic fiber for decades. It retains its original look for years after installation, it resists matting, and it bounces back after a heavy item is removed. Triexta is a newer tough material that is similar to nylon. It is inherently stain-resistant, while nylon resists stains because it receives treatments in the factory. Olefin, or polypropylene, resists mold and mildew, while polyester, available in bright colors, is often made of recycled materials.
