Bentley Prince Street Launches New Eco-Friendly Adhesive Line To Complement Expanded Recycled Content Carpet Backings

LOS ANGELES, CA – [July 27, 2006] – Bentley Prince Street has made another step toward its Mission Zero™ goal of eliminating its potential negative impact on the environment by the year 2020 by thinking not just about what’s in its carpets – but what’s underneath them. The company announced today the launch of a new eco-friendly adhesives line that sets a new industry standard for environmental innovation. These adhesives complement the company’s new recycled content backings launched earlier in the year.

Healthbond 1500 Ultra Green Plus™* adhesive, designed for broadloom applications, and NexStep 2300 Ultra Green Plus™* adhesive, for carpet tile applications, both meet the stringent Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) Green Label Plus™ criteria, an independent testing program that identifies carpeting and adhesives with very low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and establishes the highest standard for indoor air quality. The new adhesive offering also exceeds California’s indoor quality standards for low-emitting products used in commercial settings such as schools and office buildings, meeting the testing protocols used by the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and passing the stringent California SCAQMD Rule #1168 low VOC criteria.

Both adhesives also offer the benefit of contributing to 1 LEED Point under Adhesives and Sealants and are packaged in 75% post-industrial resin (recycled) pails. Healthbond 1500 also contains 20% post-consumer recycled content in the adhesive itself.

“To reach our Mission Zero goal of leaving zero environmental footprint by the year 2020, we need to look at every area of our products and processes to see where can innovate and adapt what we do to minimize our impact on the environment,” said Anthony Minite, president of Bentley Prince Street. “Our new adhesives are another example of this holistic philosophy in action. And, with the Green Label Plus certification, our customers can be confident they’re purchasing the most environmentally friendly adhesive products on the market.”

The new adhesive offering complements the company’s recently introduced recycled content backings for its products: Optimum BarrierRC™, Optimum BarrierRC Cushion™, Prestige PlusRC™ and Prestige PlusRC ™with Moisture Guard™. Optional on all Bentley Prince Street products, these backings include ReCover™, a component of the cushion backing made with 100% post-consumer recycled content. In addition to being more environmentally friendly, these new backings add tensile strength, dimensional stability and allow for easy removal from adhesive.

“Over the last 10 years, Bentley Prince Street has reduced its waste sent to landfill by 82 percent. These new backings, along with our other recycled content products, reuse materials that otherwise would have been disposed of as solid waste. We’re very pleased to have reached another milestone in our journey to sustainability,” Minite continued.
