Encore® SD Ultima® Fiber
The first step in building a better commercial carpet is using a superior nylon. At J+J/Invision, we have produced our own solution dyed nylon since 1991 to control the color, quality, and appearance retention of our carpet products. We were one of the first mills to extrude our own nylon, which is now branded Encore® SD Ultima® and featured exclusively in select J+J/Invision products. Carpet engineered from Encore® SD Ultima® gives the specifier critical benefits:
- Minimum of 20% recycled nylon content
- Eligibility for J+J/Invision’s carpet reclamation program
- Encore SD Ultima Lifetime Fiber Warranty
- Lifetime Colorfastness Warranty
- Encore SD Ultima Features and Benefits
Exceptional, modern colors are an essential part of commercial carpet. With Encore® SD Ultima®, we have created a palette of rich, deep colors to complement any commercial interior. Our design team continually refines the colors we offer to keep the collection fresh. As our colors are unique, so too is our carpet. Carpet made of Encore® SD Ultima® makes your project distinct.
For carpet to be a true value, it must look as good years in the future as it does the day it was installed. It must withstand all the abuse that an active workplace can produce. With proper carpet maintenance, no other fiber meets these challenges and is quality-assured as strongly as Encore® SD Ultima®.
We are so confident of our fiber’s in-the-field performance that we back up every J+J/Invision carpet made of 100% Encore® SD Ultima® with the strongest quality assurance package in the commercial carpet industry today. Click here for a Comparison of Solution-Dyed Nylon Fibers.
Though proper carpet color selection is important in masking soiling, Encore SD Ultima® is specifically engineered to minimize the visual effects of soiling by decreasing the surface area to which dirt may cling. The trilobal construction also helps to refract light, creating more vibrant, saturated colors.
We add color to the fiber during the extrusion process. Because the it is an integral part of the fiber, the color will not wear out or “walk out." The color in our fiber also holds up exceptionally well to UV light, atmospheric contaminants, and harsh cleaning agents. It will last and look better longer. And that is why we warrant the colorfastness of Encore® SD Ultima® fiber for the life of the carpet.
Good Environmental Impact
Because Encore® SD Ultima® contains a minimum of 20% recycled nylon content, we use millions fewer pounds of virgin nylon feedstock each year. This is great news for the environment! We don’t plan on stopping at 20%; we continually work to increase the amount of recycled nylon content in Encore® SD Ultima®, while maintaining the superior performance and quality assurance that our customers expect from J+J/Invision.
One important aspect of Encore® SD Ultima® is unchanging - it meets J+J/Invision’s rigorous standards for quality and performance. Its long life, unsurpassed performance and environmental friendliness make carpet manufactured of Encore® SD Ultima® an exceptional value.
