I4F, a group of companies providing patents and technologies to the flooring industry, will exhibit at Domotex 2023 from January 12-15 in Hannover, Germany, (booth B15 in Hall 23) where it will showcase sustainable savings process technology for SPC panels, i4F Be-Lite. 

I4F Be-Lite has been selected by Domotex 2023 to be presented at The Green Collection display area in Hall 23, A80. An independent jury, made up of experts, will select the best products/technologies presented in the area, recognizing the winners at a special award ceremony on January 12, 2023.

The i4F Be-Lite technology enables a significant reduction in the use of core SPC raw materials during the manufacturing process of decorative panels without compromising on performance. SPC panels produced using i4F Be-Lite are significantly lighter, making them a lot less expensive to produce and transport. This significantly improves the flooring industry’s carbon footprint while remaining attractive to manufacturers by also delivering cost savings. 

"We are delighted to kick-start the new year at Domotex! 2023 is going to be an exciting year - full of opportunities but, also, market challenges," said i4F CEO John Rietveldt. "Our focus continues to be on delivering ingenious and meaningful technologies that bring value to our licensees. With this in mind, we are deepening our sustainability drive with smart process technologies that meet the industry’s biggest market demands while protecting the future of our planet.”

During Domotex 2023, i4F will also showcase other cutting-edge solutions in the areas of drop-lock installation technologies, digital printing, surface finishing, including technologies imitating ceramic grouts, wall and ceiling installation systems, board and panel compositions as well as its latest sustainable manufacturing processes.
