Freudenberg Performance Materials, a leading global manufacturer of innovative technical textiles, will be exhibiting at Domotex - the world’s leading trade fair for floor coverings. The company will present high performance backing materials for textile flooring under the headline, ‘Sustainable Backings’ in Hannover, Germany, from January 11 to 14, 2019.

Taking inspiration from this year’s Domotex theme ‘Create’n Connect’, Freudenberg’s stand will provide a unique experience connecting visitors with a seemingly real, natural environment. Featuring Freudenberg tuft backing, the optical carpet design of the booth will be created with high-end digital printing technology, said a press release from the company.

With a variety of technical solutions, such as the use of recycled polyester, Freudenberg tuft backings help carpet manufacturers to design more sustainable products and reduce their environmental footprint. Furthermore, the Freudenberg group is committed to sustainability through its corporate policies, values, and its numerous projects to minimise energy, water and raw material consumption.

Manufactured using a proprietary Freudenberg technology, polyester spunlaids provide high dimensional stability, reliable and precise pattern repeat, exceptional lay-flat characteristics and constant surface uniformity, as well as non-fraying edges. Therefore, these nonwovens are the ideal solution for high-quality primary and secondary backings for carpet tiles, broadloom carpets and walk-off mats.

“We expect visitors to literally long for walking with naked feet on a soft natural ground. Visiting us will be like diving into an island of nature in the middle of the crowded fair. This will provide the ideal atmosphere to talk with our customers about building a sustainable future together,” said Sylvie Meyer, sales manager Tuft Europe at Freudenberg Performance Material.
