Title (EN) FLOOR COVERING WITH UNIVERSAL BACKING AND METHODS OF MAKING AND RECYCLING
(FR) REVÊTEMENT DE SOL À SUPPORT UNIVERSEL ET PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION ET DE RECYCLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A dimensionally stable universal floor covering includes a tufted textile having stitches and a reinforcement layer operatively connected to the stitches to provide dimensional stability for the entire floor covering. The reinforcement layer is made of fibers and adhesive that are formed into a reinforcement layer of laminated fibers that is operatively connected to the stitches and/or the fibers and adhesive are formed into a layer of fibers and adhesive that is contained within the stitches. The fibers and adhesive are mixed and then moved by an applicator toward the stitches. A curved slip path is formed on a curved portion of the applicator to improve the movement of the fibers and adhesive toward the stitches. A removable tip portion on the end of the curved portion of the applicator improves the penetration of the adhesive and provides compression of the fibers towards the ends of the stitches. A releasable adhesive cover system is provided to cover the layer of fibers for providing additional strength and stability and for providing a releasable attachment of the universal floor covering to a supporting surface.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un revêtement de sol universel dimensionnellement stable qui comprend un textile touffeté présentant des points et une couche de renforcement raccordée fonctionnellement aux points pour fournir une stabilité dimensionnelle pour l'ensemble du revêtement de sol. La couche de renforcement est constituée de fibres et d'un adhésif qui forment une couche de renforcement de fibres stratifiées qui est raccordée de manière fonctionnelle aux points et/ou les fibres et l'adhésif forment en une couche de fibres et d'adhésif qui est contenue à l'intérieur des points. Les fibres et l'adhésif sont mélangés puis déplacés par un applicateur vers les points. Un trajet de glissement incurvé est formé sur une partie incurvée de l'applicateur pour améliorer le mouvement des fibres et de l'adhésif vers les points. Une partie pointe amovible sur l'extrémité de la partie incurvée de l'applicateur améliore la pénétration de l'adhésif et assure la compression des fibres vers les extrémités des points. Un système de revêtement adhésif détachable est prévu pour recouvrir la couche de fibres pour fournir une résistance et une stabilité supplémentaires et pour fournir une fixation détachable du revêtement de sol universel à une surface de support.
