Flooring & Carpets

Flooring systems have always had to address issues such as the lengthy drying and sticking processes, associated costs from loss of activity, odours during application, and environmental impact. To overcome these, many flooring systems traditionally rely on the use of a resin-based system called methyl methacrylate (MMA).

VAE dispersions of Wacker Chemie’s Vinnapas brand are increasingly being used instead of traditional latexes as binders for bonding carpet backing, as well as for high-quality wood glue and water-based flooring adhesives.
