‘No Equal in the Industry’: Tarkett’s Powerbond® RS is World’s First CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® Soft Surface Flooring
SOLON, OH, DECEMBER 9, 2022 — Allergy Standards Limited (ASL), an independent global certification company, and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), the leading patient organization for people with asthma and allergies, have deemed Tarkett Powerbond® RS flooring as CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly®—the world’s first soft surface flooring to receive this designation.
“Powerbond was introduced in 1967 and, decades later, is still ahead of its time,” said Roxane Spears, vice president, sustainability for Tarkett North America. “Health and wellbeing are important topics for our customers. Powerbond RS was specifically developed to address potential problems associated with indoor air quality and building-related illness. This type of third-party certification gives validity to the innovative work Tarkett has done to create healthy, sustainable products.”
Powerbond RS is a hybrid resilient flooring, meaning it combines the look and feel of carpet with the durability and cleanability of a resilient surface. Made with an impermeable, closed-cell cushion backing and installed with chemically welded seams, Powerbond RS provides a wall-to-wall moisture barrier to prevent mold and mildew. In addition, its low pile height allows for the easy removal of dust and allergens. In testing, 95 percent of allergens were removed effectively with a simple dry vacuuming.
Exacerbation of asthma, allergies and other respiratory illnesses has been linked to exposure to indoor air pollutants, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Powerbond RS is made with low VOCs, including its pre-applied adhesive, ensuring the product installs quickly and contributes to healthy indoor air quality over the life of the floor.
“We congratulate Tarkett in achieving the asthma & allergy friendly® certification for the Powerbond® RS collection,” said Dr. John McKeon, CEO of Allergy Standards Ltd. “Tarkett has added its hybrid resilient flooring, which is the first in the soft surface flooring category to achieve certification, and we applaud their strong commitment to creating healthier indoor environments. This will make it easier for people with asthma and allergic sensitivities to find flooring options that meet their needs.”
AAFA and ASL joined together to create the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program, which is based on science. To become CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly®, a product must pass rigorous, product-specific standards developed by ASL’s team of scientists and reviewed by AAFA’s medical experts. A product must pass all certification requirements to become CERTIFIED, indicating that the product is proven to be better suited for those with asthma and allergies. Powerbond RS was tested for VOCs, allergen removal, and particulate release into the air during cleaning.
According to AAFA, there are more than 50 million Americans experiencing various types of allergies each year, and 25 million with asthma. Asthma is the leading chronic cause of school absenteeism among children.
Having CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® soft surface flooring ensures that Tarkett is contributing not only to healthier classrooms and learning spaces for children, but also campus housing, corporate offices, senior living communities and more.
True to the company’s commitment to Tarkett Human-Conscious Design®, Powerbond RS was developed for the wellbeing of both people and the planet. In addition to its research-backed design, which is scientifically proven to help mitigate against indoor asthma and allergy irritants, Powerbond RS is made from recycled materials and, like all Tarkett North America floors, is free of ortho-phthalates.
All Powerbond RS designs are also protected with Eco-Ensure, a proprietary, fluorine-free, anti-soil chemistry that provides enhanced soil protection and removal, as well as durability to foot traffic. Eco-Ensure is Cradle to Cradle Certified® Platinum in the Material Health Category.
Powerbond RS’s unique construction is available in hundreds of Tarkett designs and can be combined with Tarkett’s Imaginations® program to display customized visuals such as brand names, logos, mascots, wayfinding or communications.
“Launched over 50 years ago, Powerbond still has no equal in the industry,” said Spears. “Having this official Certification is a huge step forward not only for the flooring industry, but also for the millions of people who suffer from asthma and allergies.”

Recycling? You have the will. We have the way.
We can all agree that recycling safe materials is a good thing. It preserves the world’s natural resources and is a major contributor to reducing climate change. But doing the right thing isn’t always easy. How can you be sure your post-installation or used flooring comes back for a second life and doesn’t end up as landfill or goes to incineration?
Tarkett's ReStart take back and recycling program
The answer is, leave it to us! Our hassle-free flooring take-back and recycling program, ReStart®, will take it all away for recycling and provide you with certification of the amount of material you contributed. Linoleum and vinyl off-cuts from installation? We’ll take those. Your old click or loose-lay vinyl flooring or your old carpet flooring? Don’t you worry, we’ll have that too. We’ll even take away old carpet flooring made by one of our competitors. That’s just how we roll.
