Carpet comes in a range of lovely colors that clients can choose from to liven up their home or workplace. The different fibers receive a dye to provide rich, long-lasting color. There are many different types of dye process that carpet can get. One of the most popular is beck dying.
Beck dying is when a woven section of carpet is dyed in one piece. The infusion of dye to fiber takes place in a large vat known as a beck. The solution, a blend of water, dye and finishing chemicals, colors the entire carpet piece. This is opposed to dying the yarn before it is tufted into the backing.
Pressure beck dying, also known as jet beck dyeing, happens when the carpet and dye are placed in a large pressurized vat. Because the process uses heat and pressure, the dye penetrates the fibers more quickly. The result is a beautiful carpet with the desired color for the clients.
