During the tufting process yarn tufts are stitched into primary carpet backing, which provides a base cloth to hold the yarn in place. Our range of Donbac® primary backings provide a wide variety of carpets with an extrememly strong and stable cloth for securing yarn tufts.
Donbac® is a woven polypropylene fabric used as a tufted carpet component and is widely recognised as the preferred primary backing with a high 124-end tape density. This increased warp density reduces needle deflection, improves dimensional stability and ensures accurate tuft placement.
Donbac® primary backing is available in two colours: tan for lighter, natural coloured carpets and black/tan for darker carpets.
