Carpet has been made the same way over the last 50 years. Half of the weight of the carpet provides no value except for holding it together. The face fiber does all the work and sees all the wear. With Mohawk AIR.O carpet, the face fiber, binder, and backing are all polyester, fusion-bonded together. The result is tremendous strength, flexibility, and dimensional stability. Mohawk makes AIR.O out of 100% PET, so you can also recycled it to make new backing and fiber.
Mohawk AIR.O carpet is a tufted textile face and primary backing fusion bonded to a nonwoven cushion. Instead of being manufactured under tension like traditional broadloom, Mohawk AIR.O carpet face and primary backing are chemically welded to the cushion without tension, forming both a powerful bond and a dimensionally stable product.
What Is It, If Not Traditional Carpet?
Mohawk AIR.O carpet is flexible. Because Mohawk AIR.O carpet is not constructed with traditional primary and secondary carpet backing joined with latex and fillers, it has a softness and flexibility that makes it easier and faster to install. Mohawk AIR.O dimensional carpet stability leaves the knee kickers, power stretchers, tack strip and seaming irons stored in the back of installers’ vans. All you need to install Mohawk AIR.O carpet is a cutting tool, double-sided tape, and a T-square. Because this product has total dimensional stability, we don’t need to removed any tension when installing.
