    Hey guys!
    Here is the situation we have sold a Karastan Metropolitan collection carpet with the High performance backing HE.(kind of a Black rubber) This carpet was stretched in and the backing separated. I am of the opinion that this carpet should be double stick glue down, However Mohawk States that it can be Seamed with a hot iron. Has anyone dealt with this Backing system? opinions on Double stick versus hot melt? Any experiences?

    I beleive Karastan had us use the Microwave iron on the Black Backing.

    Koolglide works great on it. Haven't had any issues with stretching it in. Had a similar type of product from another company, used their adhesive and double stick install. Went back a week later to steam bubbles down. Got a call again with more bubbles. Been such an issue, the client is putting wood down instead.
