C4 Corvette Carpet is available with an original mass backing (pictured below) or non-original poly backing material (pictured above). From 1984-1993 Chevrolet installed a cut-pile carpet and from 1994-1996 a TruVette carpet with mass backing that was designed to protect your Corvette’s interior from loud noises and heat. The mass backing which was/is made of ethylene vinyl acetate adds mold-ability making it an excellent choice for both interior protection and overall fit. If you are contemplating replacing the carpet in your C4 Corvette, we recommend the mass back because of its durability and 100% factory original looks.
Mass backing is a great choice when replacing the carpet in any C4 Corvette but for some the cost is too high. Because of this we also sell C4 Corvette Carpet Sets with a replacement poly backing at a fraction of the cost. Poly backing, which is made out of a lightweight polyethylene is a thinner backing that has proven to withstand years of use. Though the poly backing is still a good choice it will not protect your Corvette’s Interior from noises or heat like the mass backing. We recommend poly backed carpet sets if you are not willing to pay the extra money for mass backing as it is available for cost saving purposes only.
