Freudenberg at Domotex 2020 in Hannover: creating an atmosphere of sustainable well-being with high-performance backings

Under the headline, “Sustainable Backings”, Freudenberg Performance Materials will be exhibiting at Domotex in Hannover, Germany, from January 10 to 13, 2020 on stand B61 in Hall 11.

Weinheim, Germany, December 13, 2019. At Domotex – the world’s leading trade fair for floor coverings, Freudenberg Performance Materials will present its range of high-performance backing materials for textile flooring, and highlight how they can contribute to improving the environmental footprint of carpets.

The company shows what is possible with its booth design: Taking inspiration from this year’s Domotex theme “Atmysphere”, Freudenberg’s stand will provide a unique immersive experience. With flowing transitions between carpet and walls, the décor will show a natural scene conveying both sustainability, nature and a sense of well-being. The carpet will be printed with high-end digital printing technology and naturally feature a Freudenberg primary backing. Freudenberg tufted carpet backings made from spunlaid polyester nonwovens bring the necessary dimensional stability required by digital printing machines for carpets.

Freudenberg primary and secondary backings for carpet tiles, broadloom carpets and walk-off mats are polyester spunlaids manufactured using a proprietary technology. They provide high dimensional stability, reliable and precise pattern repeat, exceptional lay-flat characteristics and constant surface uniformity, as well as non-fraying edges.

Committed to sustainability

Without compromising on performance, Freudenberg backings are unique components of sustainable flooring. The manufacturer recycles its production waste materials, works continuously on developing products with a high share of recycled content, and avoids the use of chemical binding agents. Furthermore, 100 percent polyester tuft backings made by Freudenberg are 100 percent recyclable, which makes the product end-of-life management easier for carpet manufacturers.
