Flooring Offers Green Option: Tandus Centiva

Tandus Centiva, a Tarkett company, improves the performance and well-being of a space with a time-tested material called ethos. In 2004, Tandus Centiva was the first to harness the PVB film in windshields and safety glass, creating a time-tested alternative to traditional carpet backing polymers.

Through recent innovation, ethos Modular now has the ability to stand up to subfloor conditions of 15 pounds MVER, 98 percent RH and 11.0pH when installed using TandusTape+, enhancing its performance in interior spaces. This is higher than any other modular carpet tile solution in the industry, allowing installation under almost any subfloor moisture situation. With TandusTape+TM, installation is free-lay, long lasting and lower emitting than traditional wet-applied adhesives.

The ingredients in ethos have been assessed rigorously by a third-party to verify it contains no carcinogens, mutagens, or reproductive toxins. In addition, Tandus Centiva does not add antimicrobial treatments, so the air in a space can start clean and stay clean. In 2014, ethos became Cradle to Cradle Certified Silver v3.0, the first of its kind in North America.

“Tandus Centiva ethos is a natural expression of what we believe. It is a true, time-tested innovation for the future of flooring, and that makes us proud,” says Erin Istanbulluoglu, Director of Environmental and Social Stewardship, Tandus Centiva.
