Note on Attached Cushions (LXT-18 and LXF-24):

When cushion is desired, we highly recommend using our attached cushion backings. We run two (2) different types of attached cushion backs, LXF-24 for ColorPoint carpets and LXT-18 for all other carpets.

Both of these backs are run to density and thickness, not weight. The LXF-24 is 24 lb./cubic foot density attached cushion and is run at approximate 2.5 mm thickness. The LXT-18 is 18 lb./cubic foot density attached cushion and is run to approximately 3 mm thickness. Both backs come with non-woven scrim for ease of installation.

The attached cushion backs use our BioCel™ technology. BioCel polyurethane carpet backing combines renewable and recycled materials resulting in a product that is 70% green by weight and contains:

  • Bio-based polymers made from domestically grown soy beans.
  • Celceram, a highly refined, recovered material from coal combustion.
  • The non-woven scrim is made from PET fibers (yarn made from recycled plastic bottles).

All of our EnviroCel™ and BioCel backing systems qualify for LEED. Our attached cushion backings help reduce the cost of installation. We require premium multipurpose adhesives and seam sealer on all of our backing systems.
