Unilin Technologies is pleased to invite you to their Flooring Innovation Days!

After another unconventional year, in which unfortunately no physical meetings and events could take place, Unilin Technologies wanted to reconnect with the market by organizing the "Flooring Innovation Days". During this online webinar series, several of our colleagues will be hosting 4 webinars to introduce you to Unilin's newest licensable technologies.

Unilin Technologies launches Pressed Bevel for resilient flooring

12/05/2021
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 continuously grows its patent portfolio on digital structure

23/08/2021

Unilin Technologies is happy to announce that the European Patent Office will grant a new European Patent on digital structuring technologies. The specific patent EP 3 381 710 will further extend Unilin Technologies' patent portfolio on "digital structure technologies" for panels. 

"Unilin Technologies already described and filed patent protection for digital structuring technologies in 2009", states Jasmine Geerinckx, Business Development Manager at Unilin Technologies. "Such patents protect printing technologies that can produce 3D structure on the surface of panels. The main method for realizing the structured layer comprises at least two steps, namely, a first step, in which a synthetic material layer is provided on the substrate, and a second subsequent step, in which a relief or structure is produced on the surface. Such a structure is achieved by using a digitally-printed, lacquer-repelling agent or a selective mask that protects the underlying, synthetic material during a mechanical removal treatment."

This patent portfolio is commercialized under the name 'DIGITOUCH'. It is a complete digital solution for printing life-like 3D textures directly onto boards. DIGITOUCH adds that real look and feel. 

Unilin Technologies has worldwide patent protection on these digital structure technologies with more than 90 patents and 11 applications and is in extensive negociations with many of its partners to license out the patent portfolio.

For more information regarding Unilin's patent portfolio on digital printing and/or digital structuring for the panel industry, please contact Jasmine Geerinckx directly at jasmine.geerinckx@unilin.com
