Aquafil’s Econyl nylon available on Material Bank
Cartersville, Georgia – Aquafil, maker of Econyl regenerated nylon, is now included in Material Bank, the largest materials marketplace for the architecture and design industry.
According to Aquafil, designers can specify more durable carpets for projects by searching for Econyl reclaimed nylon in the Material Bank library. Aquafil said the library offers hundreds of options from leading brands, including Interface, Mannington, Milliken, Masland, Tarkett and more. Searches can be filtered by application, color, construction, pattern, and environmental benefits and standards.
“We are excited about the great opportunities for architects and designers to discover the carpet collections made with Econyl regenerated nylon through Material Bank’s world-class platform,” said Franco Rossi, president of Aquafil USA. “The ability to create design boards and palettes directly on site using carpet samples from collections made with Econyl nylon is changing the game and we are excited to empower designers with these resources.”
Samples ordered from Material Bank before midnight EST will be delivered free of charge the next day, the company said. Material Bank offsets 100% of direct carbon emissions from all sample shipments, and samples can be easily returned to the source for reuse, eliminating waste, Aquafil said.
Econyl regenerated nylon can be recycled indefinitely without ever losing quality, Aquafil said. According to Aquafil, Econyl nylon offers endless possibilities for designers and architects, is made from 100% waste, 100% recyclable and offers up to 90% reduction in global warming compared to nylon from fossil sources.
