Carpet Chemicals are used while making carpets and later while cleaning it. The maximum industrially produced carpets contain a series of chemical extracts. Chemicals are permeated during the production of the carpet fiber or are introduced externally as topical actions on the final product. One of the projected purpose of use of the carpet chemicals is to protect against bacteria, dust mites, fungi and molds. The chemicals used in the carpet also helps to act as flame retardant, anti-slip and anti-allergic agent. Some of the chemicals used for anti-microbial are silver sodium hydrogen zirconium phosphate, zinc pyrithione and triclosan where as some of the chemicals such as formaldehyde is used as preservative and brominated flame retardants may be added as fire retardant chemicals. Some Carpet Chemicals are used for removing the stains relatively while some highly intense chemicals can help in deep cleaning of the dirt as well. Citafresh, odoban, sensation carpet spotter and grease release spotter are the type of chemicals used for cleaning the carpets and removing stains from it. However, carpet chemicals are very hazardous in nature as they contain high levels of volatile organic compound (VOC). Therefore, nowadays, each carpet is tested four times a year for four categories of emissions such as styrene, volatile organic compounds, 4-PC and formaldehyde in order to reduce air pollution through the carpet chemicals.
Global Carpet Chemicals Market Dynamics
The market of global Carpet Chemicals is anticipated to be driven by the growth of construction and refurbishment industry. The Increased number of residential buildings as well as commercial buildings such as hospitals, hotels, schools, offices, etc. is driving the demand for the carpets, thus also benefitting the carpet chemicals end use market.
However, due to high level of VOC present in carpets has called for stringent regulations for carpet manufacturing and installation based procedures, which has prompted the use of alternate flooring systems such as wood laminate flooring, ceramic tiles, vinyl, linoleum floors, etc. decreases the demand of carpet and therefore, impacting the growth of global Carpet Chemicals market.
