Flooring installed using wet adhesives pose a challenge for reuse or recycling on uplift due to contamination. This results in flooring being sent for incineration or landfill, and lengthy rectification work to the sub-floor.
IOBAC’s patented range of dry-laid installation technologies securely affix flooring throughout yet are cleanly and easily uplifted.
These reversible fixing mechanisms enable flooring to be reused, vastly improving circularity, and facilitating flooring manufacturers' take-back schemes.
Building assets such as access flooring and concrete subfloors are protected from damage, with the additional embodied carbon associated with new materials avoided.
What encouraged you to become a member of ASBP?
Committed to flooring reuse, we want to educate the industry on the importance of specifying an adhesive-free installation method alongside their chosen floor covering.
All IOBAC products come with our Reuse Promise, which is intended to give specifiers confidence that their flooring specification is fit for reuse in future projects.
As a 2023 ASBP award finalist, we saw ASBP’s expertise and commitment to sustainability and reuse, and would love to collaborate further with other members on innovations that challenge the status quo for the good of the planet.
