Carpets Industry Glossary of Terms

Abrash: A change in the carpet color due to differences in the wool or dye batch. The color change runs across the carpet, and is most likely to occur at the top.

Adhesive: A substance that dries to a film capable of holding materials together by surface attachment. An adhesive is used between the carpet padding and the carpet.
Antistatic: The ability of a carpet system to dissipate an electrostatic charge before it reaches the threshold of human sensitivity.
Attached Cushion: A material such as foam, rubber, urethane, PVC, etc. that creates a cushion and is adhered to the back side of a carpet. It can provide additional dimensional stability, thickness and padding.
Average Pile Yarn Weight: Mass per unit area of the pile yarn including buried portions of the pile yarn. In the U.S., it is usually expressed as ounces per square yard.
Backing: Fabrics and yarns that make up the back of the carpet as opposed to the carpet pile or face.
Berber: Loop-pile carpet tufted with thick yarn, such as wool, nylon or olefin. Often having random specks of color in contrast to a base hue, this floor covering has a full, comfortable feel, while maintaining an informal, casual look.  Currently, this term has expanded to describe many level or multi-level loop carpet styles.
Binding: To protect, strengthen or decorate the edge, a band or strip of material is sewn over a carpet edge itself.
Carpet: Carpet is a heavy fabric used to cover floor and made from a variety of fibers.
Crushing: Crushing is irreparable loss of pile height caused by traffic or weight.
Denier: Denier is the amount of yarn per area of carpet.
Cushion: Any kind of material placed under carpet to provide softness and adequate support when it is walked upon. Carpet cushion provides a softer feel underfoot and provides added acoustical and insulation benefits and longer wear life for the carpet.  In some cases, the carpet cushion is attached to the carpet when it is manufactured.  Also referred to as "padding" or "underlay," although "cushion" is the preferred term.
Density: Density refers to the amount of pile yarn per area of carpet or the closeness of the tufts. Higher density carpet improves resistance to crushing and matting.
Double-Glued Seams: Double-glued seams attach carpet to bare floor to prevent delamination and edge ravel. Installers should double-glue seams to prevent fuzzing.
Face Weight: Face weight is the number of ounces of fiber per square yard in the face of the carpet (not including the backing). The face weight affects performance and durability.  Face weight is different from density because it varies with carpet height.
Fiber: Fiber is the fundamental unit of carpet. Carpet fibers are made from nylon, polyester, cotton, acrylics, wool, and recycled material.
Flocked: Flocked carpet is made of tufts of wool or cotton fiber.
Fuzzing: Fuzzing occurs when fluffy particles appear on carpet surfaces. It is caused by fibers that loosen because of weak twist or snags. Professional carpet cleaners can shear the carpet to remove fuzzing.
Heatsetting: Heatsetting is the process of heating or steaming yarns to hold their twist. Most nylon, olefin, and polyester cut pile carpets are heatset.
Knitted: Knitted carpet is formed by interlacing yarn in a series of connected loops
Matting: Matting is the usually irreversible adhesion of carpet yarn caused by traffic or dirt.
Memory: Carpet memory refers to texture retention.
Needle Punched: Needle punched carpet is stitched into backing material
Pile: A pile is a column of carpet fiber.
Pile Reversal: Pile reversal or shading is a feature of cut pile carpet. Traffic bends the carpet fiber in different directions creating an impression of light and dark areas. Regular vacuuming can create uniform shades.
Pilling: Pilling occurs when fluffy particles appear on carpet surfaces. It is caused by fibers that loosen because of weak twist or snags. Usually, you can simply cut the pills with sharp scissors.  If the pills are large, however, call in a professional carpet cleaner, retailer, or installer to resolve the problem.
Plush: This finish is normally achieved only on cut-pile carpet produced from non-heat-set singles spun yarns by brushing and shearing. It is sometimes called "velvet-plush" and is the luxuriously smooth-textured carpet surface in which individual tufts are only minimally visible and the overall visual effect is that of a single level of yarn ends.
Rippling: Heat and humidity can cause ruffles or waves in wall-to-wall carpet. A professional carpet retailer or installer can re-stretch the carpet with a power stretcher.
Shading: Shading is the same as pile reversal.
Shedding: New carpet tends to shed for a few weeks after installation. Regular vacuuming can resolve this problem. Shedding is more common in cut pile carpet and in wool carpet.  Synthetic fiber carpet (such as nylon) does not shed as much
Snags: Snags can occur when an object tangles in carpet. Usually, you can simply cut the snag with sharp scissors. If the snag is large, however, call in a professional carpet cleaner, retailer, or installer to resolve the problem.
Soiling: Soiling occurs when dirt particles build up in carpet fibers. Regular vacuuming and cleaning will prevent this problem.
Sprouting: Sprouting occurs when fluffy particles appear on carpet surfaces. Usually, you can simply cut the sprouts with sharp scissors. If the sprouts are large, however, call in a professional carpet cleaner, retailer, or installer to resolve the problem.
Static Electricity: Cold and low humidity often create isolated motionless charges of electricity. Some carpets provide static resistance. Humidifiers also limit static electricity buildup.
Texture Retention: Texture retention or carpet memory is the ability of tufts to retain their shape under traffic. Caring for care will help texture retention.
Tufted: Tufted carpets are pieces of yarn embedded in backing material.
Twist: Twist is the winding of the yarn around itself. More twist improves carpet performance (especially in cut pile).
Twist Level: Twist level is the number of turns per inch of yarn.
Waterfall Installation: Stairs are composed of a tread (the upper horizontal part of a step) and a riser (the upright member between two stair treads). Waterfall installation attaches carpet to two points on each step (one at the back of the tread and one at the bottom of each riser).  This type of installation extends the life of carpet on stairs.  When the carpet on the treads become worn, they can be taken up, reversed, and reinstalled with the worn areas placed over the risers.
Woven: Interlacing strands of fiber into a yarn forms woven carpet.
Yarn: Yarn is made of fibers that are twisted together to form a continuous strand.
Yarn Count: Yarn count reflects the amount of yarn packed into a given area.
