TecSOM has taken up the challenge!
TEX, 100% textile backing
Bet won with TEX, a regenerated polyester fiber felt backing, manufactured according to the historic TecSOM needling technique.
This new backing option is now available for most of our collections, and makes it possible to get a fully textile-made loose lay carpet whose complete environmental impacts have been evaluated by LEED and HQE. It is also guaranteed free of solvent, phthalates or formaldehyde and A+ certified.
TEX is also the result of our commitment to provide 100% French, healthy and quality textile floorcoverings that meet the highest health standards, in full transparency.
Optimal technical performance
TEX tile shows similar technical advantages to the classic Backing System tile, in particular with regard to resilience (commercial use class 33) and stability (rate < 0.20%).
Comfortable and lightweight, it is easy to install and remove. Direct installation on all types of hard surfaces (stone slab, ceramic tiles, concrete screed, wooden floor, cork or laminate floor) without the need of self-levelling compound.
Ambient noise and impact insulation rate performance is practically equivalent to a backing system tile equipped with an acoustic underlay of recycled fiber.
Textile density and natural insulation cause a permanent hot air trapping, which results in a thermal comfort gain similar to that offered by a 2 mm rock wool layer.
No residual odour, as sometimes PVC can generate. Low VOC emission in ambient air. Certification A+. Guaranteed without plastic.
