Carpet Cushion Netting

June 1, 2009

Conwed Plastics has introduced the first and only completely degradable carpet cushion netting. A new revolution in carpet cushion, Padmate netting with Ecocycle works with the carpet cushion manufacturers to supply a more sustainable carpet pad. Netting made with Ecocycle is an environmentally-friendly and affordable solution.

Conwed begins with its light weight netting technology, which produces one of the most sustainable material options available and combines that with its patented Ecocycle Technology to produce a truly revolutionary material. Netting is used in the construction of bonded carpet cushion to reinforce the pad and give it extra support during installation. The netting integrity is not compromised during its functional life, but provides the added benefit of controlled degradability. Despite the fact that carpet pad recycling has one of the most extensive infrastructures of any recycling enterprise in the U.S., there is still more than two million pounds of carpet cushion netting that is not being recycled. Due to this revolutionary technology, Conweds Padmate netting with Ecocycle will degrade at a much faster rate than standard netting, minimizing the environmental impact.
