Difference between nylon 6,6 and nylon 6 carpet
Ok, thanks to the help I have received here, I have decided against using polyester carpet. I have been pricing short cut nylon frieze, and have come across a couple of pretty good deals at a local carpet store. One is Anso nylon and the other is a Shaw nylon but I forget the name. Both are nylon 6. What is the main difference between 6 and 6,6 nylon? We are stretching our budget to get the nylon instead of polyester, so I am leaning towards going with the nylon 6 because it is less expensive than the 6,6. My main concern is with it fading. The salesman I worked with told me that is will fade, but that there is really no way to predict how quickly. Are we talking 1 year or 5 yrs or 10 or what? The choice for us really is between nylon 6 and polyester...I know polyester won't fade, though, but still, I think nylon is the way to go, right?
