Unilin Technologies reinforces its patent portfolio on texturing technology for the ceramics market

09/09/2022

Unilin Technologies is happy to announce the notice of allowance of US patent application number 17/213,348. The patent specifically relates to ceramic tiles whereby the structure is formed in the glaze and in register with the printed decor. 

This patent will be included in Unilin Technologies' comprehensive ceramic tile patent portfolio on Digital Texture technologies. The SynchroTile technology package also contains important knowledge to create a surface texture via digital glaze such as patent EP2108524.

In addition, important patents have been granted to Unilin Technologies regarding digital powder glazing technology, such as patent EP2542426. It involves a glue being digitally printed in a predefined pattern and then a powder being spread onto the glue, creating beautifully embossed structures after vacuum removal of unglued powder and subsequent firing. 

"This new allowance strengthens Unilin Technologies' broad patent portfolio SynchroTile on print-in-register and digital texturing technologies for ceramics. This innovation opens up a range of design possiblities, it for example enhances the handmade look of modern Moroccan tile collections that recently came to the market. We are excited to share and showcase this and other technology packages at the TECNA fair in Rimini." States Floris Koopmans (Sales Director IP).
