INZIDE commercial's Interface backings

GlasBac®RE is Interface’s latest advancement in sustainable modular carpet backings.

Utilising new technology, vinyl backings can be completely separated from the nylon fibres of used carpet tiles. The vinyl is then able to be recycled into new backings that provide even better performance than 100% virgin vinyl backings. The nylon from the carpet fibres is redirected to other uses.

Depending on the yarn system selection, GlasBac®RE backed carpets have a total recycled content by weight from a minimum of 40% and up to excess of 50%. GlasBac®RE reduces the amount of virgin vinyl used by 49% when compared to our standard GlasBac®.

The separation process allows the recycled backing to be reclaimed over and over again, making GlasBac®RE a sustainable, high performing backing.
