Carnegie Introduces Surface IQ Wallcoverings

Surface iQ fabrics use only nonhalogenated, natural-clay fire retardants and are available with optional microperforations, recommended in humid climates, to reduce the risk of trapping moisture behind the wallcovering during the cooling season. Surface iQ passes the California Section 01350 indoor air emissions test and uses a non-arsenate antimicrobial additive as well as water-based inks free of heavy metals and chlorine. A standard cellulose and polyester backing is adhered to the textured polyethylene face, so the product installs with a standard vinyl wallcovering adhesive.
