SUPERIOR STIFFNESS & STABILITY

All Colback secondary backings are suitable for the most challenging applications. This includes their use as reinforcement for needle felt backings. Spunbond Colback nonwovens provide the dimensional and thermal stability, which high-end flooring products require. This is true during manufacturing and throughout their entire service life alike. Moreover the fabric’s stiffness keeps carpet and vinyl flooring products laying perfectly flat. Unlike many wovens, Colback does not fray. A significant advantage for installers and project owners.
