Home Press Release Propex marks five years of Artis Modular Backing

Dalton—Propex officials are marking the fifth anniversary of the launch of its first woven polyester primary modular carpet backing, Artis.

The backing system was introduced at NeoCon in 2011.

“Artis has been a huge success for us,” said Tom Borders, vice president, furnishings solutions, domestic. “It was, and still is, the first of its kind. Its popularity continues to grow.”

Artis was designed by Propex to provide all of the advantages of a non-woven and woven backing such as enhanced pattern clarity and definition, improved first quality throughput, and 85%-plus post-consumer PET recycled content.

“Since [2011], the company has introduced new innovation using its Artis technology, expanding new product lines to offer more advantages,” Borders continued. “Tufting on Artis has even enabled some of our customers to win design awards.”
