These are an essential component of high-quality textile floor coverings. As a leading manufacturer of innovative technical textiles, the company will also be highlighting its contribution in helping carpet manufacturers to design more sustainable products and reduce their environmental footprint.

Taking inspiration from this year’s Domotex theme Unique Youniverse, Freudenberg’s stand will provide a unique experience, with an immersive design and a carpet printed especially for the trade fair using the latest digital carpet printing technology. The carpet features a Freudenberg primary backing.

High stability and uniformity

Manufactured using a proprietary Freudenberg technology, polyester spunlaids are said to fulfil the demand for high-quality primary and secondary backings for carpet tiles, broadloom carpets and walk-off mats.

According to the manufacturer, they provide high dimensional stability, reliable and precise pattern repeat, exceptional lay-flat characteristics and constant surface uniformity. Non-fraying edges allow precision fitting of carpet tiles as well as wall-to-wall applications.

Eco-friendly tuft backings

Freudenberg tuft backings enable carpet manufacturers to combine high performance and sustainability in their products at the same time, the company reports. At the fair, the company will be presenting its eco-friendly tuft materials for use as primary and secondary backings for carpets and carpet tiles. These products are made from recycled polyester, are 100% recyclable and contain no chemical binders.
