SDN has many benefits over normal nylon carpets; they have excellent wear and appearance rentention properties. The colour in this fibre is all the way through the filament (like a carrot) where normal nylon has the colour sprayed on after manufacture so the colour is on the outside of the filament with white inside (like an apple).
