Backcoating Auxiliaries for Carpet and Textiles

Since 1974, HeiQ ChemTex has developed innovative ways to coat polymeric systems to a variety of substrates.

HeiQ ChemTex is a leader in surfactant foam technology to the carpet, upholstery, vinyl, flocking, awning, and textile industries. We have an extensive line of acrylic, EVA and styrene butadiene polymer foaming agents and foam stabilizers. Many of these foaming systems are developed specifically with consideration to the polymer, substrate and application equipment being used.

Our technical sales representatives are trained to work closely with our customers to determine all the critical parameters of the application before making specific product recommendations.

Selected Products
