Unilin introduces Unicoat waterproof coating

Home News Unilin introduces Unicoat waterproof coating

UnicoatWaregem, Belgium—Unilin Technologies introduced its newest patented innovation to its portfolio: the “Unicoat” waterproof coating. The coating provides protection against water leakages and prevents damages in floors when having been exposed to excessive amounts of water over a long period of time, according to the company.

The coating is applied during the production process and a sealed surface is obtained when the panels are locked together, Unilin said. It is applied to an otherwise unchanged wood-based core board, which makes the technology a cost-effective way to obtain high-quality waterproof features, the company added.

According to Unilin, the Unicoat water-repellent coating for flooring has a dual purpose:
  1. The coating is designed to prevent water from penetrating in between the joints of two flooring panels, thus sealing the surface.
  2. The coating aims to prevent swelling of a wood-based core by forming a shielding layer that minimizes its moisture-absorptive nature.

To reach the ultimate waterproof properties with Unicoat, the company said it is best used in combination with one of the Unilin locking systems, for which the built-in pretension is designed to provide water-resistant properties.

The new technology was developed and patented by Unilin several years ago and has already been introduced to the market as HydroSeal technology on many of the Quick-Step, Pergo and Mohawk product ranges, which are widely recognized as top performers in terms of waterproof properties in the industry, Unilin said.
