Attached Cushion Support for Commercial Carpet Performance

Foot traffic, roller traffic, tracked-in material from the outdoors ... many factors can affect a carpet's performance. KangaTRAC can improve a carpet's ability to withstand heavy traffic loads, constant wear and harsh cleaning - and still keep looking and feeling great. A dense polyurethane commercial grade attached cushion, KangaTRAC offers the support your commercial carpet needs for lasting performance.
A dense polyurethane commercial grade cushion applied to the back of carpet during the manufacturing process, KangaTRAC is specially engineered to support the demands faced by commercial carpets. Backed by over a decade of research and testing, and proven in countless installations, KangaTRAC offers the support your commercial carpet needs for solid performance.

OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE
KangaTRAC's patented backing systems strengthen tuft bind and minimize edge ravel, because the backing is chemically and mechanically bonded to the carpet. KangaTRAC is an integral part of the total floor covering product.

COMFORT
KangaTRAC
premium attached cushion gives resiliency and comfort underfoot, even in areas of heavy foot and roller traffic. Advanced polyurethane technology keeps KangaTRAC from "bottoming out", providing years of superior support.

DELAMINATION & WRINKLES
By forming a secure bond with carpet fibers during the manufacturing process, KangaTRAC counteracts the rigors of daily wear, greatly strengthening most carpets' resistance to edge ravel and delamination. KangaTRAC also minimizes wrinkles by absorbing impact shock, supporting surface fibers, and stabilizing the carpet composite.

WEARABILITY
The repeated pounding of constant traffic can leave its mark on carpet face fibers. KangaTRAC's dense cushion gives the proper support to deflect traffic impacts. It helps carpet to retain its appearance and texture, minimizing early signs of wear and the need for premature replacement.

DIMENSIONAL STABILITY
KangaTRAC’ s
unique "relaxed technology" provides added strength and stability to help prevent carpet bowing, skewing and rippling. And since carpets with KangaTRAC are glued directly to the floor, many installation problems can be avoided.

MOISTURE RESISTANCE
KangaTRAC resists moisture penetration, keeping spills at the surface for fast, effective clean-up.

INSTALLATION
Direct glue down installations are easy with carpets backed by KangaTRAC. Use a premium quality, multi-purpose adhesive and follow manufacturer’s specifications. With KangaTRAC's secure bond, seams can be precisely cut and edge ravel minimized.

REMOVAL
A unique outer layer or "skin" makes carpet backed with KangaTRAC easier and cleaner to remove than other flooring products. If using a releasable adhesive, removal is even faster.

THE SMART BUSINESS DECISION
Add value to your commercial carpet by adding KangaTRAC attached premium polyurethane cushion. Improved acoustics, better insulation, and enhanced moisture resistance are all benefits of this unique commercial carpet backing system.

STANDARD SPECIFICATIONS
KangaTRAC is a high modulus backing system made of 100% premium polyurethane. It can be applied to finished commercial carpet constructions with ActionBac® secondary backing, or over a pH adjusted latex unitary precoat without ActionBac®. These standard specifications are subject to slight variations within normal manufacturing tolerances.
