Hamont, Belgium—I4F, a group of companies providing patents and technologies to the flooring industry, said it will be exhibiting in Hall 5.1 at Domotex asia/ChinaFloor 2020 being held Aug. 31 – Sept. 2 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Shanghai, China. The company is also unveiling a new virtual showcase designed to remove physical boundaries by enabling booth tours, meetings and technology demonstrations to take place virtually.
“We are extremely proud to be exhibiting, once again, at Domotex asia/ChinaFloor,” said John Rietveldt, I4F’s CEO. “We have attended the show since the beginning of our existence and this year is no different! Thanks to our new virtual showcase, we will overcome physical boundaries, and despite the current challenges in our world we continue to stand strong and united with our licensees, customers and partners in China and Asia.”
I4F’s management team said it will be available for the duration of the exhibition via the virtual showcase to meet with manufacturers as well as distributors and retailers. I4F’s local Shanghai team will be physically present on the booth. From today, meetings and virtual connections with I4F during the show can be pre-booked via I4F’s website.
At Domotex asia/ChinaFloor, the company will showcase the latest technologies and innovations immediately available via an I4F license from each of its patent clusters. I4F’s Patent Cluster Concept (PCC) offers cutting-edge solutions in the areas of locking, new high-demand materials and panel compositions—notably in grout technologies, board and wall panels, manufacturing processes as well as for surface finishing and digital printing.
Details of exciting new enhancements to I4F’s industry-leading locking technologies – 3L TripleLock and Click4U will be shared on both the physical and virtual booths. These unique drop-lock flooring installation systems eliminate the need for an additional insert on the short side. Both technologies are suitable for all materials and formats, can be manufactured on existing high-speed production and have multiple installation benefits. Installation is up to 30% faster than basic clicks and no special tools are required.
