TractionBack 2.0 is a proprietary high-friction coating applied to the back of Milliken carpet tiles during manufacture. It is engineered to secure the carpet to the floor without the use of wet adhesives. This means it is free of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) making it a much cleaner, healthier, and safer method of modular carpet installation that positively considers the well-being of both the installer and the building’s occupants.
TractionBack 2.0 is engineered to secure the carpet to the floor and prevent lateral movement but can also be easily lifted and replaced when required.
WHY USE TRACTIONBACK 2.0?
1. Impact on the Planet is Minimised
By consuming minimal raw materials and eliminating potentially harmful VOCs from adhesives, TractionBack 2.0 drives down the environmental impact of the carpet:
In addition, this clean installation method is ideally suited for recycling or reuse of the tile without adhesive contamination.
2. Helps Achieve a Circular Economy by Assisting in Recycling and Reuse
A completely clean method of carpet installation, TractionBack 2.0 carpet tiles do not become contaminated with adhesives or particles of subfloor which can hamper their recyclability.
3. Installation is Cleaner and Healthier
Wet adhesives and floor sealants are largely eliminated, removing mess, and on-site drying. TractionBack 2.0 provides an odourless, non-toxic and VOC-free alternative.
4. Installation is Faster and Downtime is Reduced
TractionBack 2.0 is applied to the carpet backing during manufacture meaning the carpet tiles are ready to install straight out of the box:
5. Offers Greater Flexibility for Phased Installations
TractionBack 2.0 allows greater flexibility for project managing carpet installations. Installation can be scheduled around a client’s on-site day to day business requirements.
6. Ease of Maintenance
TractionBack 2.0 carpet tiles can be easily lifted and replaced without leaving a residue on the floor. Access to the subfloor is quick and tiles can be uplifted multiple times without loss of grip.
7. Sub-floors are Protected
TractionBack 2.0 causes no damage to the subfloor. When the tiles are lifted there is no residue on the floor and simple buffing will return the floor to its original condition.
8. TractionBack 2.0 Saves Time and Money
