Lauzon licenses Välinge surface technology

Home News Lauzon licenses Välinge surface technology

Viken, Sweden — Canadian hardwood maker Lauzon is Välinge’s first licensee to use its photocatalytic technology called ACTiO2 on hardwood flooring to contribute to a greener and cleaner indoor environment.

Lauzon in November launched its new product range, Pure Genius, which uses Välinge’s technology.


Välinge said that when ACTiO2 enhanced floors come in contact with daylight or indoor light, a natural photocatalytic process takes place, breaking down hazardous substances (such as formaldehyde and other Volatile Organic Compounds) and unpleasant odors. Floors with ACTiO2 also assist in efficiently degrading bacteria and fungi, the company said. 

Valinge also said the technology increases the hydrophilicity of the floor, making dirt easier to remove and helping water spread as a thin and uniform film to avoid streaks on the floor after cleaning.
