As an advocate of the 3R movement (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle), Tuntex has always sought to use green manufacturing through continuous innovations. The concept of sustainability in development runs through LuxCushion™.
Traditional soft backing systems require massive water/chemical and energy usage, all of which contribute to a considerable carbon footprint. LuxCushion™ repurposes high resilience nylon that is a byproduct of yarn wasted during the carpet manufacturing process and directly reproduces this waste yarn into the backing in the original factory. By shortening the manufacturing process and logistics distances, it helps minimize Tuntex’s overall carbon footprint.
From yarn extrusion to carpet manufacturing, every linkage in the production generates wasted yarns. Normally, these wasted yarns will be discarded directly or reproduced through a lengthy process. LuxCushion™ is produced from wasted yarns. We collect and convert these yarns into available materials for the production of LuxCushion™ which maximizes resource efficiency.
Both the face yarn and the backing are recyclable to create the green cycle of carpet production.
