BASF Green latex

November 8, 2011

BASF has developed the first latex for carpet backing adhesives to be made with a minimum of 10% renewable materials. Styrofan ECO 4810 will enable carpet manufacturers to develop new, sustainable products with ingredients that reduce energy and resource consumption, compared to alternative materials, according to the company.

BASF's test data indicate that Styrofan ECO 4810 latex achieves key product performance levels targeted by both residential and commercial carpet manufacturers.

The carpet industry has a strong commitment to developing sustainable products. Styrofan ECO 4810 latex will help carpet manufacturers meet the ANSI/NSF 140-2007 standards of the American National Standards Institute and NSF International. The ANSI/NSF 140-2007 standards are used to identify certified carpets with a reduced environmental impact across multiple life cycle and environmental categories.
