Tufted Broadloom Carpet

In tufted broadloom carpet, VINNAPAS® vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) polymer dispersions are used in precoats and secondary coatings. VINNAPAS® vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) polymer dispersions provide effective adhesion between the different layers. When used in the primary coating (precoat), VINNAPAS® products provide the strength to lock the tufts of yarn in place (tuftbind). In the secondary coating, they ensure dimensional stability by bonding the secondary backing to the carpet.

Benefits:

  • Low odor
  • Low emissions
  • Good filler load
  • Good penetration and fiber adhesion (bond strength)
  • Compatibility with formulation additives
  • Good thickener response
  • Good flame-retardant properties
  • Soft to stiff handfeel

Applications:

  • Tufted broadloom carpet backings
