Unilin obtains notice of allowance for US patent on melamine paper and wood-veneer SPC


On the 20th of March 2019, The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued a notice of allowance for patent application 16/160,120. The granted Unilin patent will protect the combination of SPC cores with a top layer of melamine-treated paper or wood-veneer. SPC products with such top surfaces are being introduced by many of Unilin’s licensed partners.

Bart Van der Stockt of Unilin’s IP division comments: “This patent is based on Unilin’s early R&D in the category of waterproof or resilient flooring panels, which started off as early as 2006 and has intensified over the years. The patent complements Unilin’s previously granted rights in the area of WPC and SPC flooring panels.”
Unilin will be showing its innovations at the upcoming Domotex Shanghai exhibition in Hall N3, Stand C15.
