Carpet Backing Technology



The Dow Chemical Company's polyurethane carpet backing technology addresses assisted living facilities' demands, such as durability, maintenance, and roller mobility, without compromising flooring design. The polyurethane molecular structure of DOW™ ENHANCER™ Technology allows the backing to absorb the pounding of foot traffic and support the heavy weight of furniture. ENHANCER also reduces the crushing and matting of carpet in high-traffic areas such as hallways and lobbies. The backing also impedes liquid and dirt from penetrating the subfloor, reducing the occurrence of wick-back stains and odors and allowing for aggressive maintenance programs.
