UltraBond, the green way to bond

The new UltraBond is a patented bonding staple polyolefin fibre that eliminates the need for latex or other chemical binders to bind nonwovens. It opens up a new path to create 100% polypropylene (PP) needlepunch carpets which meet the same performance requirements as traditional latex-bonded carpets while reducing the end-of-life environmental
impact and functional properties such as pilling resistance, resistance to wear abrasion, and also UV resistance are guaranteed.

100% recyclable carpets
Using UltraBond manufacturers finally gain the potential to costefficiently produce 100% recyclable carpets. In addition to the general benefits of making recycled PP available for the plastics production chain and reduced waste generation, environmental advantages and financial savings arise from a total lack of water and less energy use. As a 100% dry process, thermal bonding uses no water and results in a total absence of waste water. There is also a reduction in the VOC level of the carpet. This all leads to a significant reduction in a needlepunch carpet’s ecological footprint.
