(Chicago) Universal Fibers®, global leader in developing sustainable solution-dyed carpet fiber is introducing a revolutionary new carpet fiber, Intraflex® this week during NeoCon in Chicago.

"We're excited to be launching Intraflex, and share news with our customers and the industry," says Joe Parry, Global Marketing and Brand Director with Universal Fibers. "The early response has been extremely positive from the A&D community, as well as from our carpet mill partners."

This multi-tonal fiber system produces sophisticated carpet patterns with natural tweed effect.
