Have you heard of Shaw’s R2X system? If not, you have been missing a cutting edge carpet technology that protects carpet fibers from dirt and spills and we want to introduce you to what makes R2X so unique.
Shaw first introduced R2X; Stain and Soil Resistance system in 2001 after years of research and testing. R2X is an innovative carpet stain and soil repelling system that goes beyond conventional repellents to protect more than just the carpet’s surface. With R2X, carpets are armed with total fiber coverage, offering complete protection from the top to the bottom of the yarn. This total fiber coverage offers unprecedented protection against household spills and everyday soiling. With R2X, spills that reach the base of the yarn don’t penetrate and wick back to the top as they do with conventional solutions.
In testing, R2X demonstrated superior carpet stain resistance on two levels. First, it provides better initial protection. Second, it allows more time to react to a problem. Another significant benefit of R2X is its effectiveness with polyester and polypropylene fibers. Most polyester and polypropylene carpets have an inherent tendency to attract soil. Topical soil carpet treatments are only “skin deep,” and the limited protection they offer wears away after cleaning or normal wear and tear. In contrast, R2X continues to perform well even after repeated cleanings. The performance of nylon, polyester, and polypropylene treated with ordinary systems begins to diminish. And of course, Shaw’s warranty protection ensures customer satisfaction, time after time.
