Launched in 2015, Microsfera was a great expression of our ongoing quest to become more sustainable on a product level. Since our sustainability journey started in 1994, we have introduced innovations such as random designs, the TacTiles® installation system, recycled and biobased yarns and a precoat made from recycled PVB.
Microsfera was a cutting-edge carpet tile combining several sustainability breakthroughs, such as polypropylene yarn suitable for intensive use and Modular Fusion, a thermal bonding process that allowed construction without a precoat. Together, they lead to a massive decrease of environmental footprint compared to other carpet tiles in the market.
Although it is no longer for sale, the breakthroughs that were needed to create Microsfera are being put to use in current and future products.
