Faces and backings held together with binder made from broken car windows
A large and irreparable chip on the windscreen is annoying for everyone, and in general this kind of damage is associated with increased resource consumption and waste, as the windscreen must be replaced. It involves both the purchase (and thus production) of a new car window as well as the disposal of the broken window. However, through innovative product development, we have succeeded in replacing traditional latex glue with recycled binder made from broken car windows, thus ensuring a new use of laminate film from car windows that would otherwise have ended up in landfill. We use this more sustainable option when we attach the face of our carpet tile or plank to the backing.
Laminate from broken car windows is the main ingredient in carpet tile adhesive, but broken building glass is also used. The binder contains no hazardous chemicals and is approved as a raw material by Asthma-Allergy Denmark.
Made from recycled materials
Since the carpet tile face is created from regenerated and renewable yarn based on used carpets, old fishing nets and other industrial waste, and our patented Ecotrust backing is made from recycled plastic bottles, the recycled binder literally forms the glue of your sustainable project. This is because the ReForm carpet tile collections primarily consist of recycled materials.
