Unilin Click Patent Upheld by Chinese Patent Office

Wielsbeke, Belgium, March 26, 2021-In a 13-page decision, issued on March 24 by the Chinese National Intellectual Property Administration, Unilin’s CN 101023230 patent was declared to remain valid. The decision follows an action filed by a third-party claiming the patented invention lacked ingenuity based on several prior art technologies.

This patent is the Chinese counterpart of Unilin’s international family of click patents, that protects Unilin’s current generation of “angling in” click technology. The technology is practiced in laminate flooring and engineered wood glueless products, as well as in SPC, LVT and WPC floor panels.
