Unilin Forms Partnership with Centexbel

Waregem, Belgium, April 16, 2024-Unilin announces its partnership with Centexbel, a pioneer in biobased polymer research. 

Through this collaboration, Unilin has secured the exclusive and worldwide licensing right for Centexbel’s patent family on bio-based and biodegradable coatings, inks, and adhesive technologies.

Centexbel’s research in biobased polymer technology spans over two decades, resulting in advancements in coatings using polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) and polylactic acid (PLA), two leading biopolymers. These 100% biobased polymers offer a sustainable alternative to fossil-based thermoplastic polymers, such as PE, PU, acrylate or PVC, and present clear environmental benefits alongside manufacturing efficiencies and cost-effectiveness.
