A Primer: Making Your Carpet Specs Count

Backing is the foundation of carpet, just as steel girders are the foundation of a building. It supports the carpet and can protect its beauty and overall functionality for years after the installation. That’s why specifying backing is as important as selecting the color, fiber, and pattern of your carpet.

The Dow Chemical Company, developer of ENHANCER™ Technology for cushioned carpet backing and ENFORCER™ Technology for non-cushioned carpet backing, invites you to learn more about carpet specifications and earn continuing education credit by downloading our new CEU posted on the Interiors & Sources Web site.
