ZeeTreeWaregem, Belgium—Unilin and ZeeTree have joined forces to promote digital printing and texturizing on rigid core floor boards. Unilin’s strong patent portfolio on digital printing and texturing, combined with the patented advanced embossing solutions and wear layer chemistry developed by ZeeTree offers the ideal technical solution in the decorative rigid board market, the company said.

“We are delighted that our early research and IP relating to digital printing and texturing technology are empowering developments in the decorative rigid board market,” said Jasmine Geerinckx, business development director, Unilin Technologies. “These developments are definitely enhanced by the successful implementation of ZeeTree’s patented texture embossing solution, that is currently offered in combination with machine manufacturing suppliers Barberan and Cefla. The possibility to print a vast range of stylish wood, stone and other natural material designs in perfect register with its lifelike surface textures makes a huge difference for our license customer base.”
