Performance and Specifications

All EcoWorx products offer a lifetime commercial warranty against edge ravel, zippering, delamination, and moisture degradation to ensure product integrity throughout their entire use.

When Shaw Contract Group introduced EcoWorx tile in 1999, it set a new standard for carpet tile performance. EcoWorx tile is the strongest, most durable tile backing with 5 times the tensile strength, 8 times the tear strength and 2 times the delamination strength of traditional PVC-backed tiles. Within five years of its introduction, customers self-selected EcoWorx technology as its preferred backing of choice. Extending this durable and sustainable backing to the broadloom market, Shaw Contract Group now offers three high-performance EcoWorx products to meet your every need: EcoWorx tile, EcoWorx broadloom and EcoWorx performance broadloom.
