R2X Stain and Soil Resistance System

R2X is the industry’s most innovative carpet stain and soil repelling system and the product of years of research and testing. The Shaw© exclusive R2X system goes beyond conventional repellents that only protect the surface of the carpet.

With R2X, carpets are armed with total fiber coverage, offering complete protection from the top to the bottom of the yarn. This total fiber coverage offers unprecedented protection against household spills and everyday soiling.

With R2X, spills that reach the base of the yarn don’t penetrate and wick back to the top as they do with conventional solutions.

In testing, R2X demonstrated superior carpet stain resistance on two levels. First, it provides better initial protection. Second, it allows more time to react to a problem.

Another significant benefit of R2X is its effectiveness with polyester and polypropylene fibers. Most polyester and polypropylene carpets have an inherent tendency to attract soil. Topical soil carpet treatments are only “skin deep,” and the limited protection they offer wears away after cleaning or normal wear and tear. In contrast, R2X continues to perform well even after repeated cleanings.

The performance of nylon, polyester, and polypropylene treated with ordinary systems begins to diminish. And of course, the Shaw© warranty protection ensures customer satisfaction, time after time.

High Traffic Areas


Hardwood flooring is one of the smartest choices for any high traffic area. Hardwood flooring has been around for centuries because of the inherent strength it possesses, the abundance of hardwood trees in North America and its natural “give” making it easy to walk upon without fatigue.


Vinyl has come a long way since its creation back in the 19th century by a French physician. Celebrated for its durability and strength since its birth, vinyl has become stylish as well as durable.


Many overlook carpet as a great contender for high traffic areas, but when installed correctly, this can be a very effective choice of flooring. If properly constructed, carpet can be extremely durable and even keep the noise down in a crowded place.
