MODULEX GROUP ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF REBOND – CARPET WASTE REIMAGINED INTO ARCHITECTURAL SIGNAGE
JUNE 19 – 2023.
Modulex Group, a global leader in signage and visual communication solutions, is excited to announce that after a successful pilot project, the launch of ReBond – re-purposed carpet waste to create a new architectural signage material.
ReBond is a collaboration between Modulex, the global leader in architectural and wayfinding signage, Dansk Wilton, a Danish carpet manufacturer serving the cruise ship and hospitality industry and Elektro-Isola, a material developer and manufacturer based in Denmark.
“Modulex strives and will continue to innovate, adapt sustainable business practices and bring eco-friendly material alternatives to our customers,” says Ketil M. Staalesen, CEO of Modulex Group. “We are incredibly proud of ReBond and the collaboration with like-minded companies to create new value out of waste.”
ReBond is created using waste from Dansk Wilton’s Cradle to Cradle Certified carpet solution. The process starts by removing the carpets and recovering scraps from production waste from Dansk Wilton, which are shredded into fine fibres using Elektro-Isola’s innovative technology. The shredded textile fibres are mixed with a melting binding fibre, giving it the consistency needed to create felt mats. While the surface and appearance of ReBond are brand new, the sides of the panels bear a faint hint of the colour of the original carpets, leaving a trail of its previous life.
Formerly in a ship or hotel, carpet waste is given a second life, upcycled as architectural signage, and used in another built environment.
