I4F Forms Partnership with CFL for Finishing Technology
Hamont, Belgium, November 19, 2021-I4F, a group of companies providing patents and technologies to the flooring industry, announced that CFL has signed a new license agreement with i4F for its 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.
Through the use of a patented curing process, this technology delivers a highly realistic matte surface on panels with a minimal variance of gloss grade over time. Additionally, the technology significantly improves surface properties on critical dimensions that can be applied to all levels of gloss. This reinforces flooring panels’ micro-scratch resistance levels and makes cleaning easier-on low gloss as well as standard gloss flooring.
Creative Flooring Solutions (CFL)--a manufacturer of laminate, wood and luxury vinyl--recently invested $70 million in a new manufacturing facility in Calhoun, Georgia. Founded in Shanghai in 2004, CFL employs 3,500 at three factories, multiple offices, and distribution centers around the world.
