Las Vegas—I4F, a group of companies providing patents and technologies to the flooring industry, announced the availability of a patented technology enabling manufacturers to save up to 10% on materials during the production of rigid polymer boards. The technology also enhances productivity by optimizing the extrusion process during the production of rigid polymer boards, including expanded polymer core (EPC) and solid polymer core (SPC) panels.

“Sustainable material savings are good for the industry and our planet,” said John Rietveldt, I4F’s CEO. “Furthermore, materials represent one of the largest cost factors when it comes to extruded flooring products.
