Unilin obtains important patent victory regarding digital printing

02/06/2022

Unilin Technologies is pleased to announce that it won the opposition against their digital printing technology patent EP2132043. The decision of the European Patent Office reconfirms Unilin’s strong patent portfolio on different digital printing technologies.

Unilin’s EP2132043 patent covers immediate drying of the ink during printing on décor paper using water-based inks enhancing print quality and improving lamination process. This drying process prevents bleeding and penetration of the ink into the décor paper, resulting in brighter colors, better definition and less ink usage. Additionally, it enables a smoother lamination process, without bubbling or cause for delamination. The technology is part of Digicor, Unilin’s technology patent portfolio for single pass roll-to-roll digital printing onto décor paper for laminate.

“The victory validates our efforts and our strong patent portfolio for digital printing”, states Jasmine Geerinckx, Business Development Director. “This drying process is vital to produce high quality digital printed décor paper. Connect with us to discuss how this technology can improve your workflow or get in touch for a license when using this technology.”
