Polyester Nonwoven for Carpet Tiles

Polyester nonwovens are used as lightweight reinforcements in flooring membranes to increase their thermal and dimensional stability. When temperature or humidity fluctuates, the nonwoven prevents the other components of the flooring from contracting, expanding or shifting.

It can also be used as a scrim to tuft carpet fabrics and it provides superior stitchlock to increase pattern definition.

What is a Polyester Nonwoven?

A polyester spunbond nonwoven is a fabric composed of endless polyester fibers oriented in a random pattern and bonded together by thermal, mechanical and/or chemical means resulting in highly differentiated product characteristics. Being highly versatile, polyester spunbond nonwoven has conquered many applications such as synthetic and bitumen waterproofing membranes, carpet tiles, filtration, and lead acid battery. The material can be tailored to fit the properties the end applications require such as air-permeability, dimensional stability, puncture resistance, pleatability, and stiffness by adjusting for instance the utilized polyester type, the fiber diameter, the binder system, and the mat density. Polyester spunbond nonwoven is sold in rolls of various widths and lengths.
