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 launches new PVC free core technologies for the flooring industry at Surfaces

06/01/2022

Waregem, Belgium – 06 January, 2022

For more than 20 years, Unilin Technologies’ key ambition has been to support the continuous growth of the flooring category by introducing innovations that matter. That is why Unilin Technologies is launching two new game-changing PVC free core technologies at Surfaces: XPC and P-SPC. These new types of cores are the next step forward in the resilient flooring revolution, bringing improved performance and increased sustainability to the table.

The XPC core technology is a newly developed PVC free material which is completely dimensionally stable, providing an ideal alternative for the mainstream LVT/ SPC products. This new core material for flooring has all the advantages of standard rigid products, including a click system and being waterproof, with the additional benefit of extreme dimensional stability. Because of the dimensional stability, the core will not expand when heated up nor shrink when cooled down – a common problem seen in SPC flooring. XPC products are therefore suited to be installed in direct sunlight and will not suffer from so-called ‘hot-spots’. This offers amazing potential for both residential and commercial applications.

This new core material is the result of an R&D collaboration between Unilin Technologies and its long-lasting licensed partner SS Floors. XPC products will be readily available to the market since SS floors is the very first licensee and manufacturer of flooring with this innovative new material.

“It was a great pleasure to cooperate with Unilin Technologies on this XPC project”, states Peter Li, General Manager at SS Floors. “We are convinced of the huge potential of this ground-breaking innovation and have therefore decided to invest a substantial amount in state-of-the-art equipment to make sure that we are ready to meet the expected high customer demand. “

The P-SPC core is the environmentally friendly (PVC free) alternative to SPC. PET-SPC, or P-SPC as we call it, offers the possibility to be made from recycled materials and is by itself perfectly recyclable, offering immense opportunities for the circular challenges in our industries. With an increased focus on sustainability, environmentally friendly components and recyclability P-SPC will contribute to a more durable resilient flooring market.
