Ecore International Wins Surface Systems Patent
Lancaster, PA, June 12, 2014 -- Ecore International said it has been issued a U.S. patent for laminated interlocking surfacing systems with a recycled rubber backing.
These products are created using Ecore's itstru technology, a process that takes a wear layer and bonds it to a 98% recycled rubber backing.
The patent encompasses products in Ecore’s Ecosurfaces, Everlast Fitness Flooring, and Knot Carpet brands.
The process, according to CEO Arthur Dodge, incorporates the lamination of a wide spectrum of recycled underlayments to an almost infinite variety of wear layers, including rubber, vinyl, cork, artificial turf, carpet, and linoleum, as well as woven and non-woven reinforcing layers.
