NEWS

Unilin Technologies introduces its patented Pressed Bevel Technology for resilient flooring to its continuously growing licensing base. With this technology, the edges of a resilient flooring panel are pressed downwards into a bevel, making sure the decor layer and texture of the board continue until the deepest point of the bevel. This unique technology, on which Unilin Technologies already started filing patents more than 10 years ago,  enhances the appearance of resilient flooring to be even closer to real wood than ever before.

Unilin Technologies adds important patents regarding Print in Register and Digital Surface Texturing to its ceramics patent portfolio

30/09/2021

Unilin Technologies is happy to announce the US Patent Office's grant of US patent 10,988,942 covering "Print in Register" (PIR) on ceramic tiles. 

The specific patent 10,988,942, with a 2013 priority date, strengthens Unilin Technologies’ broad patent portfolio on the method of digitally printing a specific design, such as a wood or marble design, in register with the correspondingly structured relief surface of ceramic tiles. Unilin Technologies also holds similar patent protection in Europe and in other countries around the world.

This patent is complementary to Unilin Technologies’ comprehensive and growing ceramic tile patent portfolio on Digital Surface Texture technologies. Several patents have already been granted for the use of digital glaze to create a surface texture before or after printing the decorative design, including patent EP2108524.

In addition, important patents have been granted to Unilin Technologies regarding digital powder glazing technology. This technology involves glue being digitally printed in a predefined pattern and then a powder being spread onto the glue, creating beautifully embossed structures after vacuum removal of unglued powder and subsequent firing.
