Ceneva® is the world’s first carpet backing
containing no styrene-butadiene. Instead, Ceneva® uses a compound based completely on vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE). VAE provides a number of advantages to the final productand is the solution for those who are environmentally conscious.
Ceneva® is made from Vinyl Acetate Ethylene (VAE) which is produced from acetic acid. In the 1960s researchers succeeded in creating a binder that is now used in a wide range of
applications including adhesives, low-odour interior paints and nonwovens.
The use of VAE in carpet backing has several advantages:
