Home News Unilin, Agfa to show inkjet-printed laminate flooring, furniture

Wielsbeke, Belgium—UNILIN and Agfa joined forces to investigate the feasibility of deploying inkjet printing for high-volume, high-speed production printing of decor paper used for laminate flooring and furniture.

At InPrint, they will present the outcome of their cooperation: specialized water-based ink-primer sets for high-speed, roll-to-roll digital printing on decor paper for laminate flooring and furniture. The combination of dedicated, conventionally coated primers from Unilin and perfectly matched Agfa pigmented inkjet inks delivers a wide color gamut with ideal print quality and low ink consumption. Sharply priced, these ink-primer sets will be competing head-to-head with high-volume gravure printing.

“Integration within existing manufacturing facilities is easy as this innovative technology is fully compatible with conventional processing including impregnation, pressing, cutting and milling,” said Jasmine Geerinckx, business development manager, Unilin division technologies.

Visitors to InPrint 2019 will be able to discover a wide range of laminate samples and discuss the benefits of the dedicated ink-primer sets with experts from both companies.
