Title (EN) LIGHTWEIGHT CARPET PRODUCTS AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURE THEREOF
(FR) TAPIS LÉGERS ET LEUR PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A lightweight carpet product includes a greige carpet having a primary backing and tufted fibers, a secondary backing including a nonwoven textile of synthetic fibers, and a thermoplastic adhesive composition adhered to the greige carpet and the secondary backing. The thermoplastic adhesive composition includes a modified polyethylene terephthalate (PET) having a crystallinity less than unmodified PET and a melting point from about 90 °C to about 150 °C, and a particulate filler. Methods of manufacture include using a thermoplastic adhesive composition to adhere a greige carpet to a secondary backing to form a lightweight carpet product.
(FR)Cette invention concerne un tapis léger comportant un tissu grège comprenant une première doublure et des fibres touffetées, une deuxième doublure comprenant un textile non tissé de fibres synthétiques, et une composition adhésive thermoplastique collée au tissu grège et à la deuxième doublure. La composition adhésive thermoplastique contient un polyéthylène téréphtalate (PET) modifié à cristallinité inférieure au PET non modifié et au point de fusion compris entre environ 90 °C et environ 150 °C; elle comporte par ailleurs une charge à particules. L'invention concerne également des procédés de fabrication consistant à utiliser la composition adhésive thermoplastique pour coller le tissu grège à la deuxième doublure de manière à obtenir un tapis léger.
