Colbond launches new carpeting backing material



Published January 10, 2012
Colbond’s latest offering to the flooring industry is Colback Profloor, a nonwoven backing material which eases the creation of complex tuft constructions and enhances end product characteristics. The new backing will help carpet producers raise their product portfolio to the next level and strengthen their position in the flooring market.

Marc Krauth, vice president salesand marketing said: “ColbackProfloor is the result of a major R&D program we carried out in close cooperation with leading carpet tile producers. With this week’s launch we will make the product available to a wider group of customers.”

The new backing delivers benefits during carpet manufacture and service life. Examples include enhanced tuftability, stitch holding performance and process behavior contributing to increased process efficiencies, further improved carpet appearance and superior dimensional stability of the finished carpet tile.

Ludwig Cammaert, design and technical development manager business carpets, says, "Desso has already chosen Colback Profloor because of its superior technical performance. It offers a significant improvement in the dimensional stability of carpet tiles with economic advantages too."
