    Furnace chamber test - Photo 2

    Furnace chamber test: Films made with VAE and SB binders are tested at WACKER’s carpet lab in Burghausen. The tests show that specific VAE-based films are self-extinguishing (Photo 1), while films made with SB burn readily, issuing black smoke (Photo 2). VAE-based binders there-fore allow for formulations that need fewer flame retardant additives

    Composition of a tufted carpet

    Composition of a tufted carpet: The new VINNAPAS® CA 55 is suitable for formulating highly-filled precoats which bond carpet fibers to the primary backing. In addition, it also enables the formulation of secondary coatings, which, in turn, bond the carpet to the secondary backing (graphics: Wacker Chemie AG).

    VINNAPAS® CA 55

    Tuft bind test: A WACKER employee examines the adhesion of the fibers to the primary backing. As a binder, the new VINNAPAS® CA 55 not only offers excellent bonding and processing properties for tufted carpets, but also low emission values, reduced odor and increased flame retardant properties.

    Drainage Concrete - Test Section

    Test section of drainage concrete. While the water builds up on normal concrete or asphalt and runs off slowly (right side of photo), it can drain away easily and quickly on the new drainage concrete (left).
