CFL Granted Patent on GridTech SPC Extrusion Technology
Hong Kong, February 23, 2022-CFL Flooring (Creative Flooring Solutions) has been granted a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the GridTech SPC Extrusion Technology used on its acoustic multilayer flooring products and other SPC based products.
GridTech is an embossing technology applied on the bottom surface of a rigid core flooring panel that makes the product lighter without creating any extra production offcuts. The embossing can be of any design or shape all the while providing acoustical reduction.
The reduced weight on the products is more cost-effective, resulting in lower shipping costs and higher returns on investments. With the significantly lower need for production materials, production, handling, transport, and distribution is faster and more efficient. This patented technology also helps improve the products’ acoustic performance and overall stability. Most importantly, the creation of GridTech contributes to CFL’s commitment to helping make the industry more sustainable.
The GridTech SPC Extrusion Technology is commercialized in certain Firmfit and Novocore lines in the U.S., Europe, and other countries around the world.
CFL Flooring (Creative Flooring Solutions) is the largest manufacturer of SPC and other hybrid flooring products worldwide.
