bonded carpet 


Also called fusion bonded carpet, this is made by inserting a bundle of yarn into adhesive on a backing and heat-fusing in place. A blade is then run through the pile, producing a cut-pile texture.

Fusion-bonded carpet is constructed by implanting yarns into a coated backing. The cut pile is produced by slitting two parallel sheets of face-to-face carpet down the middle of the pile. Fusion-bonded carpet is most often die-cut as modules or "tiles" and is usually backed with a polymeric material to provide stability.
