TUNTEX of China Introduces New Antron® Nylon Carpet Styles at NeoCon for the North American Market

KENNESAW, Ga. (July 26, 2017) — TUNTEX, the only CRI Certified Green Circle manufacturer of solution dyed carpet tiles in China, debuted 26 new commercial carpet styles manufactured with Antron® carpet fiber at NeoCon 2017.  These product offerings meet the same rigorous performance standards as all carpets of Antron® carpet fiber currently available in North America.

Antron and TUNTEX have been working together in China for several years and the carpet styles have been widely used in many well-known projects in China such as Dell and Nokia.

“While many factors generally influence commercial carpet performance, the type of fiber used in the carpet is an important element,” said Elmen Hon, Managing Director of TUNTEX Commercial.  “We selected Antron® carpet fiber for these carpet styles because the integrated components of Antron® nylon with its type 6,6 polymer, hollow filament fiber shape technology, and DuraTech® soil resistance treatment, are a powerful combination that can keep carpets looking newer longer.”

TUNTEX is available in North America via Summit International Flooring (SIF), one of the leading US flooring importers & distributors. All 70 Tuntex carpet styles, including those with Antron® fibers, were on display at the Summit International Flooring/TUNTEX showroom at the Merchandise Mart during NeoCon 2017. “Tuntex had a great first showing,” says David Numark, President of SIF. “We are excited and honored to bring to the United States this very high-quality and well-established carpet tile manufacturer.” For those unable to attend NeoCon, log on to www.summit-flooring.com/tuntex-carpet-tiles to see all the great styles. Or contact Summit International Flooring to set up an introductory meeting to see them in person!

About the Antron® Brand

When durability meets design-ability, the possibilities are endless. Architects, interior designers, and facility managers specify Antron® carpet fiber because of the superior type 6,6 nylon. It allows the carpet to stand up to wear and tear – looking newer, longer. The fiber’s structure helps resist staining and the innovative shape releases soil more easily. It is the foundation ingredient in over 800 original carpet

styles from 17 trusted commercial carpet mills. Antron® carpet fiber allows for creative flexibility without sacrificing performance. All Antron® carpet fibers are third-party certified by SCS Global Services as Environmentally Preferable Products.
