Carpet Tile Overview: Carpet tile producers expand their programs and price points

Following 20 years of rapid growth that has seen the carpet tile business more than quadruple in size to a $2 billion U.S. industry (at mill sell price), transforming the floorscape of most commercial sectors, the flooring category has in many ways matured, passing into a new phase of its existence. What began as a fusion-bonded, bitumen-backed square of bland, utilitarian flooring has developed into a wide range of high-performance, high-design, largely eco-friendly products that play a dominant role in the $6 billion commercial flooring market, accounting for a third of total sales. While carpet tile is still growing at a healthy clip, continuing to take flooring share in all the commercial segments, it’s not gaining like it was ten years ago, which is part of the natural curve of new product categories as they find their organic equilibrium-we’ve seen it in laminate flooring and in a few years we’ll see it in LVT. In the corporate sector, for instance, the majority of projects don’t even use broadloom anymore. And carpet tile has become the dominant soft floorcovering in institutional sectors like education, in government projects, in public space projects, in healthcare, in ...

FlexFilms granted US patent for breakthrough BOPET film for Alu Alu blister pack

FlexFilms, the global film manufacturing arm of Uflex, has been granted United States Patent covering entire categories of Formable Films that include one or more BOPET layers used in Alu Alu blister packaging. The patent US 10131122 was issued to Flex Films (USA) Inc on November 20, 2018 for a period of 20 years, lending a competitive advantage to the Films Business of the company over its opponents in cold formed pharmaceutical packaging industry. With the patent issuance, the company gets exclusive right of manufacturing & sale of this special BOPET film in US, Europe and India. With this innovation in pharma packaging and particularly for Alu-Alu blister laminate structure, BOPET film has completely replaced the carcinogenic PVC. When PVC is recycled or reprocessed, it releases poisonous gases like Dioxin & Hydrochloric acid which are hazardous for human health. Also when PVC comes in direct contact with sunlight, it gives away Chlorine gas. Whereas the special polyester film can be recycled and reprocessed and is 100% environment friendly. Likewise, this BOPET film has also replaced 25 microns BOPA film, the processing of which is difficult due to its intrinsic pro...

It’s a new year and I’ve got a new gym membership. I went the other morning.

It’s a new year and I’ve got a new gym membership. I went the other morning. It was 8 degrees outside. And every woman in there was wearing skintight, Saran-wrap-thin yoga pants. Many were dressed in the latest fashion — leggings with patterns of translucent mesh cut out of them, like sporty doilies. “Finally,” these women must have thought, “pants that properly ventilate my outer calves without letting a single molecule of air reach anywhere else below my belly button.” Don’t get me wrong. I have yoga pants — three pairs. But for some reason none of them cover my ankles, and as I said, it was 8 degrees outside. So I wore sweatpants. I got on the elliptical. A few women gave me funny looks. Maybe they felt sorry for me, or maybe they were concerned that my loose pants were going to get tangled in the machine’s gears. Men didn’t look at me at all. At this moment of cultural crisis, when the injustices and indignities of female life have suddenly become news, an important question hit me: Whatever happened to sweatpants? Remember sweatpants? Women used to wear them, not so long ago. You probably still have a pair, in velour or terry cloth, with the name of a college or sports tea...

Bacillus subtilis bacteria probiotic boosts dog digestion

Addition of a commercially available Bacillus subtilis probiotic to dog food may improve the digestive health of dogs compared to a diet without the additive. The makers of Calsporin, a strain of Bacillus subtilis, and University of Zaragoza, Spain collaborators published evidence that Bacillus subtilis improves fat and carbohydrate digestibility in dogs’ guts. The dogs also produced higher quality feces and had healthier levels of ammonia in their digestive systems. In the experiment, sixteen Beagles ate either a low-energy control diet or the same dog food supplemented with Bacillus subtilis. The experimental dog food contained 1 × 109 CFU/kg of the bacterial probiotic. The Beagles ate one of the two dog foods for four weeks with eight dogs eating each diet. Prior to the experiment, all the dogs ate a high-energy diet for two weeks. Throughout the experiment, researchers collected and analyzed fecal samples. After two weeks, the probiotic diet dogs had firmer feces than the control diet animals, as well as higher dry matter content. Over four weeks, ammonia levels declined in the probiotic group, as fecal pH rose. “Dog food supplementation with Calsporin at 1 × 109 CFU/kg impr...

Global and China Stainless Steel & Products Industry Report, 2012-2015

NEW YORK, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: http://www.reportlinker.com/p01187987/Global-and-China-Stainless-Steel–Products-Industry-Report-2012-2015.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Metal_Mining In 2012, stainless steel prices showed the tendency of “rise before fall and mobile descending”, resulting in a downward trend for most of the traditional stainless steel producing countries. Global stainless steel production for the whole year attained to 35.36 million tons, a slight year-on-year increase, of which, down 1.6% YoY in Western Europe, down 1.2% YoY in the Americas; up 3.7% YoY in Asia; up 18.2% YoY in South Africa. In recent years, China relying on its substantially increased production has become the main engine for global stainless steel output growth. In 2012 China’s stainless steel crude steel production climbed 14% YoY to 16.08 million tons, accounting for 45.5% of the global stainless steel production, of which, 300 series products held a proportion of 49.3%, 200 series products 30.8%, and 400 series products 19.9%. In Chin...

New RFID Staple Tag for Rough Wood Tracks Timber – 2019-05-08 – Page 1

While the forestry service provides a use case for UHF RFID technology—tracking each felled tree, or each cut plank from forest to retail—there hasn’t been an RFID tag that is uniquely suited for this environment, according to Andrew Frascone, Utility Composites’ sales director. Rough wood doesn’t lend itself well to adhesives, for instance, so UHF RFID labels could be knocked or blown off, he explains. Tags screwed into the wood can create problems for mills that use cutting equipment where metal is incompatible. They also require several minutes for installation. Utility Composites, a Texas-based fastener company, has built its solution to this problem with a passive UHF RFID-enabled plastic staple that can be quickly embedded via a staple gun. Until now, timber and forestry companies have been printing stamped metal tags that show an ID number, and that are then removed from the trees as they are shipped. Bar codes were the other alternative, Frascone says, but these may not withstand weather conditions or the heat of the drying ovens at a sawmill. Often, as much as 10 percent of felled trees still end up missing—typically, they aren’t collected from t...

Behind the odd charm of the ‘Batwoman’ set in Chicago, even after they kicked me off

Right up until the moment when a media representative asked me to please leave the set of “Batwoman,” my day spent watching the Arrowverse come together had gone perfectly fine. Or so I thought. I’m an unapologetic booster of the Arrowverse and was excited to witness some Arrowverse production first hand. Whenever anyone tells me that they’re tired of superheroes, I swear by the TV shows that constitute the Arrowverse and urge them to give the Arrowverse a try. Naturally then, I was eager to watch the Arrowverse (typically filmed in Vancouver) cross over to Chicago, tasked yet again with doubling as Batman’s Gotham. But then, as often happens in the Arrowverse, storm clouds formed, distrust was sown, and then came the melodrama. As characters in the Arrowverse tend to do, I trudged away in one direction while the Arrowverse brooded and stewed and carried on. The Arrowverse is the nickname given to the half-dozen soap-opera-y, surprisingly absorbing, charming and connected-together DC superhero TV series that have been staples of The CW network since 2012. It’s a deep bench. First arrived “Arrow,” a show so confident and dark it didn’t even acknowledge its hero’s more-famous moni...

The records that made the decade, starring Kendrick Lamar, Grimes, Bon Iver, Solange, Lana Del Rey,

The records that made the decade, starring Kendrick Lamar, Grimes, Bon Iver, Solange, Lana Del Rey, and many more In the 2010s, as playlists swelled with unrelated tracks and algorithms shot listeners off in all directions, the full-length release started to feel on the verge of becoming an antique. But great artists will always want to create works that expand their visions, and this decade, they found new ways to push the LP forward. They pioneered the visual album, perfected the surprise drop, and stretched running times as long as they pleased, no longer beholden to physical media. So the form endures, and at the end of a turbulent decade, it is thriving. Here are our top 200 albums of the decade. For more about how we put together this list, read this letter from our editor-in-chief Puja Patel. And check out all of Pitchfork’s 2010s wrap-up coverage here.
