Needle Punch Carpet

Needle punching is a process of carpet manufacturing in which a matted layer of short staple fibers are punched with barbed needles into a spun, synthetic scrim and intertwined to form a mat of surface fiber. The mat is usually 3/8 thick (more or less) and appears like a very thick felt. Most needle punch carpet is manufactured using olefin staple yarn which is solution-dyed. This provides an unusually colorfast carpet that dries quickly and is very sunlight resistant. This makes needle punched carpet extremely useful for pool deck areas and in locker rooms where extreme moisture is found, on patios, and as entry mats.
