Home News Unilin wins digital printing patent opposition

digital printingWaregem, Belgium—Unilin Technologies won the opposition against its digital printing technology patent EP2132043. The decision of the European Patent Office reconfirms Unilin’s strong patent portfolio on different  technologies, according to the company.

Unilin’s EP2132043 patent covers immediate drying of the ink during printing on décor paper using water-based inks enhancing print quality and improving lamination process. This drying process prevents bleeding and penetration of the ink into the décor paper, resulting in brighter colors, better definition and less ink usage, according to the company. Additionally, the company said it enables a smoother lamination process, without bubbling or cause for delamination. The technology is part of Digicor—Unilin’s technology patent portfolio for single pass roll-to-roll digital printing onto décor paper for laminate.

“The victory validates our efforts and our strong patent portfolio for digital printing,” said Jasmine Geerinckx, business development director. “This drying process is vital to produce high quality digital printed décor paper.
