The IOBAC Flooring Reuse Promise

Futureproof Your Flooring Specification

The missing part of the circular flooring puzzle is often the installation method.

Flooring installed using traditional adhesive-based methods can be difficult to cleanly uplift, making it difficult to reuse or recycle the floor covering and leaving the sub-floor needing to be cleaned from adhesive contamination.

Specifying adhesive-free installation for your flooring can make all the difference in giving it a second life.

Yet it is often left to chance.

We know architects and interior designers have a lot on their plates, so we’re helping to make futureproofing flooring specifications as easy as possible.




IOBAC Flooring ReUse Promise


All our adhesive-free flooring solutions now come with a Flooring Reuse Promise.

This means specifiers can trust that every IOBAC product meets at least 3 of the following criteria, supporting a circular future for your flooring system.

And our product development programme is focused on improving that performance even further.


Icon contamination-free uplift

All IOBAC products act as reversible fixing mechanisms, making it easy to uplift floor coverings without any contamination, ready for reuse.


Icon No VOCs

All IOBAC products are 100% solid adhesive or contain plant-based resin, and avoid the VOCs associated with adhesives.

MagTabs comply with the “Exemplary” criteria on VOC emissions for BREEAM and exceeded all points for LEED specification.


Icon Material Efficiency

Our products offer more efficient material usage vs traditional methods

e.g. our tab installation products only require 4% coverage of the sub-floor vs 100% for tackifier, and using ultra-thin Tab-It is 75% more weight efficient.


Icon Recycled Content

Our products contain recycled content and are recyclable wherever possible.

Ezy-Install Underlay is made from recycled rubber tyres and our plant-based resins contain metal additives from recycled scrap iron.


Icon Reusable

Our underlayments are designed as reusable subfloors, with our resins creating a permanent base and Ezy-Install Underlay capable of being used multiple times.

MagTabs can also be reused up to 10x without loss of performance.
