Comments:Carol's Carpet, Inc asserts the following: 1) PTT fiber is a better product than what people traditionally think of as polyester since PET historically has not had good wear characteristics.If we have to call it polyester, it is misleading the consumer and the dealer as to how good the product really is. 2)Our experience shows that the product performs so much bettter than a PET that it should be allowed a new name. 3) Prior experience with PET has jaded dealers and caused them to not want to sell anything called polyester. Forcing a fiber, with much better performance than a PET, to use the same name, will limit the consumer's ability to purchase the product.
