What you need to know

Vapor Fading – This can occur over time when gaseous airborne pollutants, such as oxides of nitrogen or ozone, pass over and through the carpet pile, resulting in a reaction with the dyestuffs or pigments. This reaction can break dye bonds or rearrange the dye molecules with fiber polymers causing a color change or loss. Two primary types of fading include fume fading and ozone fading.

Fume Fading – Typically, oxides of nitrogen (NOx), such as nitrogen dioxide (NO2), can cause a uniform color loss in areas that are exposed to airborne gases. These gases are produced from internal combustion engines, power stations, pulp mills, …..
