Unilin Introduces PFAS-Free Waterproof Coating Formulation

Waregem, Belgium, January 8, 2023-Unilin Technologies is introducing a PFAS-free formulation for waterproof coatings, aligning with forthcoming bans on harmful chemicals such as PFAS (fluorine) in products in the EU and U.S. markets, starting in 2025.

Unilin Technologies has devoted research and development efforts to create different coating versions, each having their own distinct benefits. This research results in a comprehensive patent portfolio existing out of not only the broad coverage on the use of impregnation agents on specific HDF boards (US 11,739,537), but also protecting specific components in the coatings (US 11,473,315), as well as different application methods (US 11,746,537).

The PFAS-free Unicoat version will also be available through Unilin’s partners PTS and Schiele Maschinenbau.
