Unique Fiber Technology Gives Wear–Dated Carpet the Edge Over Competitors
Wear–Dated Fiber Material, Shape, & Mix Remain Different From the Rest
After a great deal of experimenting and fine–tuning of our carpet fiber technology, Wear–Dated achieved the highest level of beauty, comfort and durability through three distinct factors– the fiber material, the fiber shape and the mix of denier and cross–sections.
Created in the early ’50s, Wear–Dated premium nylon fiber remains more resistant, resilient and radiant than other carpet fibers. In addition to a tighter structure, these fibers possess a higher degree of internal bonding and maximum alignment of molecular chains. Thus even in heavy foot traffic, it resists getting smashed showing 20% more resiliency and a 12% harder fiber surface than other carpet fibers. Perfect for the demands of commercial interiors, premium nylon is the fiber specified most often by professional designers and architects.
Wear–Dated’s unique carpet fiber cross–section is three–sided, or trilobal. The three sides create a more natural–looking carpet surface that refracts more light and generates greater color brilliance. In addition, the trilobal shape means that each fiber holds clear, crisp, saturated color with 30% less dye, and offers more dye depth, denier and luster options.
“Denier” is a unit of measurement for the linear mass density of fibers, while “cross–section” is the intersection of a body with a plane in three–dimensional space. Mixed–denier/cross section means simply taking fibers of varying size (mass) and weaving them together in un–uniform planes (three dimensions) to achieve variations that feel and look more like the natural imperfections of fine wool.
Soft Fusion Technology™ Makes Wear–Dated® SoftTouch the Softest
A little twist, some added heat, and a proprietary process for good measure make Wear–Dated SoftTouch the softest nylon fiber in carpet.
Our exclusive Soft Fusion Technology gives the carpet fiber extra volume, strength, and softness — more value for your decorating dollar.

Wear–Dated® Revive™ Upholds & Continues the Original Wear–Dated® Promise
Wear–Dated® Revive?: Same Quality, New Fiber, More Choice!
Mohawk brings Wear–Dated quality to P.E.T. BCF fiber, elevating it to a whole new level and giving you a whole new choice in carpet.
Mohawk’s innovative fiber–cleaning technology intensifies this natural softness and body, creating carpets that provide a fresh, relaxing environment throughout the home.
Thick, clean, cushiony fibers offer all the gentle softness that you want and expect in carpet, and Revive is durable enough for any room in the house.
Revive undergoes a complete fiber wash during manufacturing to remove rough fibers, particles, and oily residue — increasing adherence ability of Scotchgard Protector Advanced Repel Technology.
The carpet is smoother and cleaner, less likely to trap soil and dirt that cannot be removed with regular vacuuming.
To carry the Wear–Dated name, all Revive products must meet Wear–Dated’s certified high–performance standards.
The results: exceptional color, longer–lasting fiber strength and durability.
Not Just Cleaner, But Greener
Billions of plastic beverage bottles are discarded each year. Mohawk keeps these bottles out of landfills by recycling at least 14,000 every minute – more than 3 billion each year – into Revive carpet fiber.
That’s over 25 % of all bottles recycled in North America. Even the bottle caps and labels get used, NOTHING goes to the landfill.

Wear–Dated® Revive™ Combines First–Class Style With Sustainability!
As a symbol of superior quality and style with the ability provide outstanding durability, the Wear–Dated carpet family from Mohawk has beautified homes for over 30 years– and will continue to do so.
The Wear–Dated brand quickly grew popular because of its firm commitment to uncompromising durability. Carpets were consistently “tough–tested” to meet or exceed consumer expectations. To its already superior 100% premium preferred nylon, Wear–Dated added the best–in–industry stain protection of Scotchgard Protector Advanced Repel Technology. Each Customer had the proven Wear–Dated assurance that every beautiful carpet would be backed by a solid promise of maximum durability, top–of–the–line stain and soil protection and rich, lush softness.
Wear–Dated Revive is in part created from recycled plastic beverage bottles which effectively minimizes its ecological footprint and diverts billions of bottles from landfills every year.
Made from heavier weight fibers that lend a higher yarn twist, greater density and color clarity, Wear–Dated Revive meets the same stringent “tough–tested” performance certification standards as the other members in the carpet family.
Finished with Optiback high–performance backing system, each fiber is surrounded by Scotchgard Protector Advanced Repel Technology™ soil protection for enhanced repellency to liquid stains.
Another signature feature of Wear–Dated carpet is the supreme softness that homeowners expect and thanks to a complete fiber wash during manufacturing, Wear–Dated Revive is no exception.
This process not only removes impurities and increases fiber strength, but also enhances fiber softness, body, and strength for long–lasting color and ultra–comfort.
Wear–Dated Revive not only continues the superior legacy of style, softness and durability with Scotchgard stain protection, but also the ultimate customer satisfaction that we aim to achieve.
This incredible product also confirms another popular Mohawk sentiment — amazing performance and environmental innovation go hand–in–hand and strand–by–strand!
Wear–Dated® Tough Testing & Certification Ensures Durability In Your Home
Superior Nylon Carpeting Developed for the Rigors of Your Everyday Life
Wear–Dated® has been testing carpet since 1980 and have developed the Wear–Dated® Tough Testing and Certification process to ensure that every carpet upholds the highest standards of quality, endurance and performance – even over time.
Scientists, engineers and technicians test each new carpet before it can carry the Wear–Dated carpet fiber brand name, ensuring that it passes industry tests as well as lives up to our exacting standards for durability.
Wear–Dated measures and monitors what happens when people walk over the same piece of carpet approximately 20,000 times, rating how well it resists soiling and maintains its original texture and appearance. This ensures that carpet made with Wear–Dated carpet fiber truly delivers durability that a consumer can count on.
During the carpet manufacturing process, carpets get treated with stain–resistance products to protect the carpet from excessive staining when exposed to artificial food dye. Wear–Dated tests for that by pouring acid red #40 dye — similar to that used in Kool–Aid® — on our carpet to see how easily it can be removed. Then it’s “walked on” using a simulator and stained again to ensure that after the soil–resisting product is worn down by traffic, the stain–resistance is still going strong.
Wear–Dated also performs vigorous industry tests to ensure that over time:
- Carpet maintains its original texture and appearance
- It doesn’t show signs of excessive fading or discoloration after exposure to light or ozone
- Yarn stays securely attached to the carpet backing and doesn’t unravel
- Wear–Dated’s static control – products made with Wear–Dated carpet fiber are manufactured to help resist the build–up of static electricity – will never wear out, guaranteed
