Shaw Industries' Corterra carpet line

Shaw Industries Inc. and Shell Chemicals have teamed up to launch Shaw’s Corterra carpet line, the first BCF carpet based on Shell’s Corterra Polymers to be introduced in the United States.

According to Shaw, Corterra fibers are stain resistant and durable. They have nylon-like wear performance without the need for chemical stain-resist treatments and complicated cleaning procedures. Most stains -- including mustard, iodine and hot coffee -- can be removed with plain hot water, according to the company.
