Okay so I got this carpet and I was wondering before I used it, does anyone know if this is safe for my reptiles. I got it from Christophers.
this is what the bottom of the carpet rubber part is made out of.
backing system Ecoworx
100% PVC-free recyclable backing system with recycled content made from thermoplastic polyolefin compound with a reinforcing layer.
high performance enviroments requiring modular flooring,
thermoplastic alternative to PVC
dimensional stability of PVC with 50% less weight
Superior delamination and edge ravel strengths to PCV
lower VOCs and smoke density test results than PVC
100% recyclable with recycled content and lower embodied energy than PVC
5 step process
1. performance precoat for maximum tuft bind
2.thermoplastic laminate for superior delamination strength
3. fiberglass reinforcement for unmatched stability
4. final thermoplastic layer for added stability
5.Die-cut into carpet tiles.
also this has nothing to do with my carpet thread, but my gargoyle gecko laid an egg but it was infertile.
Re: Carpet Question
Personally even if it were safe (I don't know, but would think so) I wouldn't use it. I'd suggest going with blue shop towels (HD paper towels) or even regular PTs instead. Those Carpets are a breeding ground for bacteria unless laundered all the time in which case they begin to break down. I have never been a big fan of them myself anyway. PT rules as it is thrown away & replaced with new clean ones guarranteed to be free of urates & feces. Mark
