Surface iQ


(Based on a 5-star scale)

Carnegie's PVC-free policy is evident with Surface iQ, a high-performance alternative to vinyl wallcoverings. Built on thermoplastic olefin (TPO) technology, Surface iQ is free of the chlorine, plasticizers, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and dioxin in vinyl. Using only water-based inks and coatings, Surface iQ is both beautiful and green. Offered in seven striking patterns, its subtle textures and bold colors can add sophistication to any interior. While PVC and plasticizers have been left out, Carnegie promises that its 54-inch-wide wallcovering provides cleanability and longevity. Surface iQ even exceeds Type II vinyl performance, proving that you can meet environmental goals (and earn LEED points) without compromising durability. Find more information about Surface iQ.
