Polycom Offers Alternative Dispersion Coating to Carpet Tile Producers

Dalton, GA, August 30, 2021 – Polycom, a division of Taylor Adhesives, announced that its EcoBlend water-based, recycled PVB (polyvinyl butyral) dispersion “can replace up to 30% of the VAE precoat (vinyl acetate ethylene emulsion) used primarily by manufacturers in the production of carpet tile.”

Polycom EcoBlend is made from a proprietary process that converts chips and pellets of polyvinyl butyral, reclaimed from the film found in discarded vehicle windshields and safety glass, into a water-based dispersion. 

EcoBlend is not affected by current supply chain constraints; is manufactured in Dalton, Georgia; and can be rapidly delivered.
