Freudenberg Performance Materials will present high performance backing materials for textile flooring at the upcoming Domotex trade fair for floor coverings that takes place Hannover, Germany, from 11-14 January.

“Manufactured using a proprietary Freudenberg technology, polyester spunlaids provide high dimensional stability, reliable and precise pattern repeat, exceptional lay-flat characteristics and constant surface uniformity, as well as non-fraying edges. Therefore, these nonwovens are the ideal solution for high-quality primary and secondary backings for carpet tiles, broadloom carpets and walk-off mats,” the company reports.

With a variety of technical solutions, such as the use of recycled polyester, Freudenberg tuft backings help carpet manufacturers to design more sustainable products and reduce their environmental footprint, the manufacturer adds. The group is committed to sustainability through its corporate policies, values, and its numerous projects to minimise energy, water and raw material consumption.

Taking inspiration from this year’s Domotex theme Create’n Connect, Freudenberg’s stand will provide a unique experience connecting visitors with a seemingly real, natural environment. Featuring Freudenberg tuft backing, the optical carpet design of the booth will be created with high-end digital printing technology.

“We expect visitors to literally long for walking with naked feet on a soft natural ground. Visiting us will be like diving into an island of nature in the middle of the crowded fair. This will provide the ideal atmosphere to talk with our customers about building a sustainable future together,” commented Sylvie Meyer, Sales Manager Tuft Europe at Freudenberg Performance Material.
