Flooring Industries, Unilin's intellectual property (IP) business unit, is now the exclusive licensing agent of Guangzhou Australian Eucalyptus Timber Flooring Co.'s compressed wood technologies.

According to the company, the compressed wood technology creates a substantial improvement in the impact and scratch resistance of wood veneers used in engineered flooring products.

"I am convinced that this compressed wood technology has the potential to become a game changer in the engineered wood business, so I am happy to partner up with Unilin's patent and licensing team since they have shown to be very successful in protecting, enforcing and licensing out other important technologies in our industry,” said Peter Chan, owner of Eucalyptus Timber.

Unilin is the inventor of the popular Uniclic locking system and is a division of Mohawk Industries.
