Unilin Technologies strengthens its patent portfolio for waterproof coating technologies

18/10/2022

Unilin Technologies, the IP division of Mohawk Industries, is thrilled to announce that they are expanding their patent portfolio on waterproof edge-coatings for MDF and HDF based boards. An additional US patent has been granted on the 18th of October 2022, which will expand the already substantial US and European patent portfolio.

Unilin’s patent portfolio is the consequence of the early and highly dedicated R&D program that resulted in strong patents with priority dates as of 2015. The newly granted US Patent US 11,473,315, which protects the impregnation of MDF/HDF based boards with different types of coating, is Unilin’s second US patent for waterproof coatings after US 10,655,338.

The US patents are following in the footsteps of the European patents that have already been granted. Floris Koopmans, Sales Director at Unilin Technologies, comments: “We have a strong patent portfolio on waterproof coatings and we see that wood and laminate manufacturers all over the world are interested in making their products more resistant to water. With this new patent we hope to further inform the industry about the existing broad patent portfolio in this area of expertise.”

Unilin licenses out their own waterproof edge-coating solution under the name Unicoat, in partnership with machine supplier Schiele Machinebau GmbH. “Unicoat outperforms other waterproof coatings in the market today,” states Floris Koopmans. “Unicoat not only prevents swelling, it also ensures a sealed surface that prevents water from penetrating between the joints. Unicoat has proven to prevent leaks, swelling and discoloration of the floors for over a week, even after extensive testing with standing water.”
