ecoBack | Circular carpet backing

modulyss launches ecoBack, a carpet tile backing designed for recycling

Brief description of services

The Belgian carpet tile manufacturer modulyss has designed ecoBack, a backing solution that is especially made to be taken apart and recycled.

Why is the product or service circular?

We strive for a maximum contribution to the circular economy by keeping our materials in use for as long as possible and by eliminating the concept of waste.

Which circular strategies are applied?

  • Reduce total amount of materials: minimal use of materials in design
  • Reduce amount of virgin inputs: increasing amount of recycled content
  • Maximise the reusability or recyclability of materials: Design for recycling

What are the benefits for purchasers?

  • EcoBack consists of a polyolefin layer, which consists of at least 75% recycled material.
  • The backing is 100% PVC and bitumen free.
  • EcoBack is 25% lighter than other backings, but offers the same acoustic values ​​and even better dimensional stability. The lower weight of the backing results in (up to 16%) less CO2 emissions and fuel consumption during the transport of the carpet tiles.
  • Thanks to its unique composition, flexibility and lower weight, it is easier for installers to cut and install carpet tiles finished with ecoBack.
  • After use, ecoBack can be recycled into a new backing solution.
