The backing contains no softening agents or solvents. The latex is protected with antioxidants to ensure that its properties last for a long time, and it is very resistant to degradation during use. The backing ensures excellent walking comfort, great sound absorption and better ergonomics.
Natural latex has been used as a carpet backing for years with excellent performance. The increased popularity of wood floors has introduced many new types of finishes and sealants, as well as cleaning agents. These new introductions may affect the performance of latex, including causing the latex to stick to the floor, discolor, or crumble.
Latex Backing Bath Rug. Stronger, and more absorbent than regular cotton, Egyptian cotton lends itself magnificently to bath rugs. The long-staple cotton is combed, then tufted to a luxurious 2, gsm to ensure a soft hand.
I'm in the same boat. I've heard that some floors will discolor no matter what backing you use because they won't get sunlight?? The best research I've been able to do says that if you can use natural rubber, it won't transfer to the floor, but I've also read that some rubber products have a petroleum preservative that can still cause a chemical reaction that discolors the floor.
When a rug slips underfoot when stepped on, or you notice odd little white, rubbery flakes that appear on the floor near the rug, more than likely the latex backing has begun to deteriorate. Manufacturers paint a liquid latex on the backside of rugs to prevent tufts of yarn from working loose, as well as to make the rugs less slippery on polished floors. One drawback of latex is that it breaks down quickly.

I recently had a client call me for advice. She had purchased a seagrass carpet not from us. She explained that the latex backing on the rug had disintegrated and had stuck to the floor.
