Surface Technologies

 

Compressed wood technology
The compressed wood technology improves the integral strength of the wood whilst reducing the wear damage. After the wood has been processed it will retain its original appearance and grain texture, but has become two to three times stronger.

Embossed in register 
True-to-nature surface structures are created by means of the press plates used in the lamination process, giving the planks a realistic texture matching the decor.

Deep embossing/ scraped
The MDF board of the laminate floor panel is deformed to create deep structures, imitating scraped wood, cracks, gaps and beveled edges found in real wood planks.

Gloss-matt contrast
This technology enables the creation of surface structures with different gloss degrees that are in register with the print of the laminate floor. Wood species such as "wenge" can be imitated very reliably.

​Anti "white line" technologies
This technology allows for masking white lines originating from cutting the melamine top layer of laminate floorings. This is done by using laser cutting technology or by coloring the edge of the cut laminate in the milling line. Unilin has entered into cooperation agreement with the company "Berry-Alloc" in order to increase the patent protection on this technology.
