Dow Rolls Out Polyurethane Backings in Europe

For more than 30 years, The Dow Chemical Company has delivered polyurethane carpet backing products to the North American market. Now the company is making the jump across the Atlantic. Dow announces the launch of its polyurethane carpet backing in the European market, introduced at January's Domotex show in Hanover, Germany.

The company's polyurethane backing systems can also be applied to synthetic turf, which is a major product for European carpet mills. Turf backed with Dow polyurethane technology allows for improved safety, comfort and durability. When compared to latex backing traditionally used in Europe, Dow polyurethane products offer carpet mills a multitude of benefits, including: speed of production, low coating weight, and improved dimensional stability and physical properties of the product.
