Scrims reinforce flooring products

Flooring in public buildings such as airports, railway stations or administrative buildings is exposed to a lot of mechanical stress. Not only large numbers of people but many vehicles including fork-lift trucks may use such flooring day in, day out. Good flooring must bear this daily stress without any loss of performance or quality.

The larger the covered surface is, the higher the demands will be that the flooring material shall retain its dimensional stability. This important requirement can be fulfilled by the use of scrims or scrim/nonwoven laminates during the manufacturing of carpets, PVC or linoleum-flooring.

The use of scrims will often improve the production process of the flooring manufacturer as well and thus help to increase efficiency.
