Tile and stone designs are becoming increasingly important for the SPC industry. It is for that reason that Unilin launches a new type of bevel for resilient floors that looks exactly like a grouted groove. This revolutionary bevel technology called “Unigrout” is almost indistinguishable from real grout. Unigrout provides the looks of real ceramics, with all the benefits of an SPC floor.

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
