Tufted carpets

Cost-effective, high performance binders for your tufted carpet applications

Synthomer’s binders for tufted carpets feature high filler acceptance, allowing you to achieve extremely cost-effective one- and two-phase coating. They are ideal for pre-coat and secondary backing with high pile binding under dry and wet conditions. In addition, we have a range of high performance solutions to meet your specific VOC level requirements.

Our wide range of products ensures that you will be able to find one that meets your exact application and process requirements to deliver the properties you need. Our product ranges include:

 

  • Litex T, based on carboxylated styrene-butadiene copolymer (XSBR).
  • Lipolan T, based on styrene-butadiene copolymer with high solid content (HSSBR).
  • Plextol T, based on styrene-butadiene copolymer (SA). 

 

We take into account factors such as texture and character of the untreated material, as well as desired properties such as elasticity, sound absorbency, dimensional and thermal stability, comfort and lifetime to make sure we provide exactly the right binder for your application.


For the more demanding professional market, we offer latices that are compatible with fillers, flame retardants and antistatic agents to deliver the additional benefits of durability, anti-electrostatic behaviour and fireproofing.

Synthomer’s latices offer multiple functionality for the finishing of carpets. With our partners worldwide, we are able to offer complete solutions including vulcanisation paste, gelling agents, thickener and soaps in conjunction with dedicated technical support at your site.

Group Tradename Chemistry Description
LITEX LITEX T 56R60 XSBR Litex® T 56R60 is an aqueous dispersion of a carboxylated styrene-butadiene copolymer. The dispersion was developed for secondary backing, particularly for the two coat process. When this technique is employed the handle of the carpet is mainly influenced by the choice of the dispersion for the precoat. Litex® T 56R60 also can be used for the one coat process. When this technique is employed the dispersion gives the carpet a soft handle. Litex® T 56R60 contains an antioxidant.
LITEX LITEX T 64W20 XSBR Litex® T 64W20 is an aqueous dispersion of a carboxylated styrene-butadiene copolymer. The dispersion was specially designed for the impregnation of needlefelt and also for the finishing of woven carpets. Litex® T 64W20 give the finished article a soft handle. Litex® T 64W20 is totally compatible with Litex® T 68W20. The products can therefore be mixed in any ratio to achieve the desired handle. Litex® T 64W20 contains an antioxidant.
