The decision does not only reinforce the protection on this unique Unicoat® solution, it also strongly supports our position that other different waterproof coatings for HDF-based floors in the market today are covered under our patent coverage. We are in the process of finalizing agreements with many big industry players that want to use the Unicoat® technology, so we are looking forward to a broad adoption of yet another Unilin technology in our flooring industry.“
