Colorful carpet. (Product Watch).

Lees' Colorburst broadloom carpeting comes in 12 colors, featuring a space-dyed yarn designed with either bright primary colors or jewel tones that pop randomly from complementary backgrounds. Colorburst is offered in both broadloom and 6' and uses Lees' patented Duracolor[R] stain-resistant dye technology, which is integrated into carpet fiber rather than applied topically, to provide permanent stain-, soil-, and fade-resistance. Duracolor will not wash or wear off after repeated cleanings or heavy traffic. With Duracolor, 96% of common stains can be cleaned with just water and mild detergent.

Colorburst also features Lees' new Unibond[R] RE backing system, which has been certified by Scientific Certification Systems as containing 20% post-consumer recycled content measured in terms of total product weight. Unibond RE eliminates the need for toxic seam welds or seam sealers, yet provides a bond that is three times stronger than conventional latex-backed carpets. In addition, Lees' Unibond RE features a full lifetime warranty (covering backing delamination, wear, and edge ravel) and provides a moisture barrier that is totally synthetic and does not support mold growth.

To help designers and facility managers coordinate their interiors, Lees offers Color Box, a solid-loop coordinating product that can be used for borders and insets with Colorburst.
