A carpet includes a textile top member and a cushion mat that is coupled with the textile top member via a thermoplastic material. The textile top member includes carpet yarns and a backing that is coupled with the carpet yarns so that the backing structurally supports the carpet yarns. The cushion mat includes a polymeric material component having polymer fibers that are randomly oriented and entangled together and a scrim reinforcement that is disposed within the polymeric material component. The scrim reinforcement reinforces and stabilizes the polymeric material component and is entirely covered and concealed by the intermeshed polymer fibers.
A carpet comprising: a textile top member including: carpet yarns; and a backing that is coupled with the carpet yarns so that the backing structurally supports the carpet yarns; and a cushion mat coupled with the textile top member via a thermoplastic material, the cushion mat comprising: a polymeric material component comprising polymer fibers that are randomly oriented and entangled together; and a scrim reinforcement that is disposed within the polymeric material component so that the scrim reinforcement is entirely covered and concealed by the entangled polymer fibers to prevent the scrim reinforcement from exposure to a user, the scrim reinforcement being configured to mechanically reinforce and stabilize the polymeric material component and carpet.
Carpet offer considerable advantages over rugs or wall to wall carpeting. For example, the use of carpet for floor covering provides a simple installation process and allows removal of individual tiles which have become worn or soiled more than other tiles. Additionally, tiles may be rearranged or replaced to enhance decorative effects. Conventional carpet include a pile fabric facing set into a layer of resilient thermoplastic (including elastomeric) material which is stiffened with a layer of suitable stiffening fibers, such as fiberglass fibers. The tile is generally backed with another layer of resilient elastomeric or thermoplastic material to which an adhesive may be applied to set the carpet onto the floor.
Due to lightweight, high strength, low shrinkage/elongation, corrosion preventive, laid scrims offers tremendous value compared to conventional material concepts. Nowadays laid scrims are widely used in reinforced carpets.
