Carpet Backing

Carpet Backing

We produce two backing types that are used in the construction of tufted carpets: Donbac® primary carpet backing and Lobac® secondary carpet backing.


During the tufting process, yarn tufts are stitched into primary carpet backing to provide a base cloth to hold the yarn in place. Secondary carpet backing provides further pile-yarn stability and increases stability to the carpet structure.


  1. Our range of Donbac® primary backings provide a strong stable cloth for securing yarn tufts.
  2. Lobac® secondary backings have an air-textured weft, which increases bulk and improves pre-coat absorption.
  3. Carpets reinforced with primary and secondary carpet backing are strong and heavy duty, and are commonly used in commercial and domestic settings.
