Australian carpet dyeing & coloring industry info research tips
Regularly we get all sorts of questions about carpet dyeing from all sorts of people across the world. This is probably as we are one of the world leaders in carpet and fabric colouring and dye research and application. We are proud to have actually tested all of the carpet dye systems in Australia available prior to and since 1980. We use this information along with our family heritage of over 400 years in the industry, to help supply you the best possible outcome for your job.
A few words of caution based on our many years of research in the Australian carpet dyeing & coloring industry.
Carpet dyes are not really items that should be bought from anyone other than the manufacturer. To our knowledge we are the only manufacturer of solutions and dyes in Australia to cover your entire furnishings. With our dyeing or colour restoration system you can re colour your vertical blinds, furniture, carpets, rugs, including car carpets without a problem if tested correctly.
Whilst there are now quite a few carpet dyeing or recolouring businesses in Australia, we are only 1 of a couple of colour restoration specialists. And you know the saying there are always a few bad apples, with carpet recolouring dyeing is no exception. We know of at least (3) three businesses hiding behind bogus addresses and or bogus names or business names. We list our postal address for our business below which you are free to send mail or verify.
Unfortunately due to our workload we cannot always answer each individual questions or as quick as you would like. This is why we have since 1998 managed to distribute plenty of valuable information around the internet which answers most of your questions with our carpet dyeing & coloring info, research tips based on Australian conditions which are very similar to some other parts of the world such as Florida in the USA.
Here are a few of the actual questions we get below, we hope they can help you.

Carpet dye colouring Questions and Answers
Question Date 5 September 2008 10:21:subject Re: carpet dye for my car..From Greg in IrelandHi I am in ireland and recently I bought BLACK CARPET DYE FOR CAR VALETING CLEANING RESTORING from a company called ridleys on ebay, I applied the dye to the carpet however even after a week if you rub it comes of on your hand, can I buy a product to fix this and a better dye or can you advise me any help much appreciated the company where I bought will not reply,Thanks look forward to your reply. GregAnswer Date 5 September 2008 16:19:subject Re: carpet dye for my car..Hi Greg, Yes you can buy a carpet dye for cars though unfortunately we only sell it in Australia due to current international postage laws.Chances are the carpet dye you bought would for for a nylon or wool carpet, most car carpets are either acrylic or now days polypropylene.One of the main reasons why it is coming off on your hands clothes etc is because the dye has not been supplied with the correct fixation agent.My only suggestion that I can think of for you to solve the current problem you have is to rinse the carpet thoroughly and extract it dry.Hope this helps.Regards TJ ShortFor The Team at The Ausis groupReply Date 5 September 2008 21:23:subject Re: carpet dye for my car.. Hi. Thanks for your advice. GregQuestion Date 19 March 2008 00:14subject Re: Carpet DyeFrom Rowan in MaltaHi I am writing to you from Malta, do you have an agent for your dye's in Europe?I need to dye a carpet area of about 200 sqm. It is currently black with coloured dashes and I would like to turn it all black. I will do the job myself, the carpet is in a low light environment so I'm not too concerned if the job isn't perfect, also being black I guess I won't have to be too worried about shades. Kindly let me know how much dye would be required for the job, and how much it would cost + shipping to Malta. If you have a nearer agent kindly forward their contact.Thanks & Regards RowanAnswer Date 19 March 2008 08:27subject Re: Carpet DyeHi Rowan Thank you for your question in relation to our carpet dyes.There are a couple of problems that exist with this situation. The carpet will more than likely no be dyeable by conventional methods due to the type of carpet. We can dye polyproelene though only in Australia due to restrictions in transit with regard to flammable goods.However depending on where the carpet is located and what it is used for depends on what methods you could do yourself.At the moment we have no sales people in your area but we are looking so if you here of anyone we would be grateful if you gave them our email.Regards TJ ShortFor The Team at The Ausis groupReply Date 19 March 2008 19:59subject Re: Carpet DyeHi TJ and thank you for your mail.I think the carpet is 80 % wool 20 % synthetic (what I'm not sure) and it is the carpet of a fairly dark nightclub. When you say it wont be dyeable by conventional methods do you mean normal fabric dyes? I have attached a photo of the carpet in case it may give you an indication of its composition. What type of dye should I be looking for for in this kind of application, since I may find companies that use it for other purposes? Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated since it's a fairly large area to replace.Many thanks Rowan Question Date 11 May 2007 17:00subject Re: Carpet DyeFrom Orlagh Corvan in AustraliaHi There, I am interested in getting a quote to dye my carpets.Do you have someone you can refer me to in Melbourne (specifically Carrum Downs 3201)I am looking at dying:1 family room1 living room3 bedroomsThanks in Advance OrlaghReply Date 11 May 2007 18:13subject Re: Carpet DyeFrom Orlagh Corvan in AustraliaHi, We would love to help you out but we do not currently have any operators in your area though we can offer you advice such as listed on the links below.
