Unilin Technologies, a provider of patents and technologies to manufacturing industries, announced that it has entered into a partnership with Tacon Decor, specialized in coating and laminate options for decorative surfaces.
Tacon Decor and Unilin Technologies have developed a special wrapping material of laminate quality, to be used as a finishing surface for skirting boards and other decorative profiles. This next generation wrapping material can be applied more easily and smoothly, at higher speed during the wrapping process while still providing the required impact resistance. It can be wrapped around corners with minimal radii. Less decor paper waste is created in the production of the wrapping material, making it a more ecological choice.
José Miguel de la Iglesia, innovation manager at Tacon Decor, adds “Together with Unilin we were able to develop this product and workflow, which opens up innovative applications for our wrapping products and makes processing in today’s applications much easier.” As co-developer, Tacon Decor promotes and sells this wrapping material to its current client base.
“Our valuable joint effort in the development and implementation of these new technologies, in combination with our extensive expertise in intellectual property management and our world-wide IP licensing network will certainly be very beneficial to both companies. We are delighted to add this technology into our patent portfolio and are looking forward to license this out worldwide.” says Unilin Technologies’ business development manager, Jasmine Geerinckx.
