PVC Rug Pads

Unlike traditional rug pads, our PVC rug pads are made in the USA. We use a high- performance soybean oil polymer blend that provides enhanced gripping power and long-lasting support. These pads were engineered using a proprietary formula specifically designed to prevent floors from drying out, sticking, and yellowing.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • What is the difference between your pvc pads vs others?

    We’ve engineered our PVC pads to avoid common issues found with existing imported vinyl and PVC padding, such a floor staining, stripping, sticking, and bottoming out. Our pads are designed specifically to avoid sticking to floors - constructed with more of a matte finish rather than glossy finish. The polymer coating is specifically formulated for enhanced durability and mar resistance while simultaneously improving degradation properties. We are one of the only companies that manufacture our PVC pads in the USA, which allows us full control over the materials used in our padding. Many imported PVC rug pads are blended with chemicals/plasticizers that may react with certain floor finishes. One example of this is the use of Phthalates, a chemical used to soften vinyl, that can be very harmful for your floors (and your home). Our PVC pads are very dense, engineered specifically to resist compression - which means when you walk over them, they will conform to your feet rather than flattening or bottoming out, eliminating cushion potential.

  • Are pvc rug pads safe to use on my hardwood floors?

    Yes. PVC rug pads can be used safely on all hardwood floors.

  • When do you recommend pvc over natural rubber?

    Our natural rubber padding and PVC padding are parallel in performance. With less common floor finishes such as vinyl, acrylic, linoleum and lacquered floors, some flooring manufacturers recommend using PVC while others recommend latex/natural rubber. If you're looking for a rug pad for one of these floor finishes, reach out to your flooring manufacturer to determine which material is recommended.

  • Are your pvc pads eco friendly?

    Our PVC pads are made with a proprietary formula that uses an increased amount of eco-friendly, bio based, renewable materials such as plant based oils and fillers.

  • May I have a spec sheet for the rug pad made for vinyl floors?

    The Anchor Grip rug pad is made from a soybean oil-based polymer blend. This low-profile pad has an incredible grip that keeps rugs secure and stable, preventing slipping, sliding, bunching and wrinkling. Anchor Grip doesn’t contain harmful plasticizers, such as phthalates that react with certain floor finishes and it protects floors over the long term.
