Home News CFL signs i4F license agreement

i4FHamont, Belgium—i4F, a group of companies providing patents and technologies to the flooring industry, signed a new license agreement with CFL regarding i4F’s low-gloss, matte effect surface finishing technology. The technology, developed by Tarkett, is exclusively available via an i4F license as one of its surface finishing cluster innovations, according to the company.

“We are delighted that CFL has signed a new i4F license for this highly sophisticated surface finishing technology,” said John Rietveldt, CEO, i4F. “This innovative technology not only meets growing consumer demand trends for low-gloss/matte flooring, but also delivers some truly meaningful benefits, including reduced light reflection under any angle, easy maintenance and enhanced surface performance.”

Through the use of a sophisticated patented curing process, this technology was created to deliver a highly realistic matte surface on panels with a minimal variance of gloss grade over time, according to i4F. Additionally, the technology significantly improves surface properties on critical dimensions that can be applied to all levels of gloss. This reinforces micro-scratch resistance levels on flooring panels for easier maintenance.

“We strive to offer the market high demand flooring solutions and that’s why we selected this unique Tarkett technology only available from i4F,” said Tom van Poyer, CEO, CFL. “Experience has shown us that i4F has the required know-how and flair to find the latest and greatest flooring industry innovations.”

According to Poyer, the NatureTrend coating will be a key part of the company’s Firmfit collections that are being introduced at Surfaces 2022.
