Unilin enters into patent representation agreement with CFL


Unilin division Technologies entered into an agreement with CFL (Creative Flooring) by which it obtains sublicensing rights on 12 patent families owned by CFL which relate to MgO (Magnesium Oxide) boards and to certain multi-layered flooring technologies, like polymeric boards with melamine paper layer. Similar rights have been granted to the companies Välinge and I4F through separate agreements.

Bart Van der Stockt, managing director of Unilin Technologies: “We are excited to start this cooperation with CFL since it allows us to add additional patent protection to our continuously growing licensing base in resilient and other new material product flooring categories. The patents of CFL are a perfect addition to Unilin’s existing patent portfolio of 900+ patents and 200+ patent applications in the resilient flooring category”.
Thomas Baert, President CFL Flooring: "We are looking forward to rolling-out these exciting new technologies separately via Unilin, Välinge and I4F. Innovation is the key driver of our company and of the flooring industry as a whole. We are happy that our innovation efforts can now find their way to the global market through the main licensing companies of our industry”.
