BioCelTM Laminate and BioCelTM Cushion performance carpet backings are recommended for high and mid-range traffic environments including: Commercial, Education, Retail, Healthcare, Assisted Living, Churches, Convention Centers, Hospitality, Main Street Commercial, Corporate, Synthetic Turf and numerous other applications.
BioCelTM backings incorporate polymers produced from natural oils, a renewable resource, that replaces a portion of the petroleum-based polymers. BioCelTM backings also contain a highly refined mineral compound that is recycled from previously mined calcium. Calcium’s unique chemical properties strengthen and stabilize polyurethane backings, improving performance and stability.
BioCelTM carpet backings can qualify under the USDA BioPreferred federal purchasing program. BioCelTM incorporates renewable resources and recovered material combined with post consumer content. The renewable resource is derived from American grown soy beans. BioCelTM utilizes American grown soybeans to create a renewable resource. Recycled PET plastic is incorporated into the non-woven secondary on our backing systems. PET plastic is a resin recycled from soft drink, water, and juice bottles. It is identified by the #1 code on or near the bottom.
Specified BioCelTM technology from Universal Textile Technologies may contribute toward LEED® certification.
From improving carpet and synthetic turf performance to benefiting the environment by incorporating recycled, recovered, and renewable content, BioCelTM carpet backing offers endless advantages and is a proven performer.
