Acrilan Contract Carpet Specification Guide.
Monsanto Textiles Co., Atlanta, GA.
The purpose of this guide is to assist specifiers in properly specifying carpet made of Monsanto Acrilan acrylic fiber. As carpet is used in an expanding range of applications, it must meet increasing and varying regulatory requirements. Performance needs vary with the type of environment in which the carpet is installed. Carpet construction must relate closely to specific fiber characteristics. And both quality installation and proper maintenance are essential to successful carpet performance. This guide provides the specifier with reference information and data and includes work sheets on which to develop a specification. Throughout the guide comments relative to the performance of Acrilan are indicated alongside performance descriptions. (Author/MLF)
