Unilin Enters into Agreement with i4F on Li&Co/Scholz's Mineral Core Patents

Waregem, Belgium, December 20, 2021-Unilin Technologies has entered into an agreement with i4F whereby i4F obtained, under certain conditions, a right to further sublicense the mineral core patents owned by Karl-Heinz Scholz and the Swiss company Li&Co AG.

In 2016, Unilin Technologies, entered into an exclusive partnership agreement with Karl-Heinz Scholz and Li&Co to promote the mineral core-based panel technology and to strengthen the position of the related patents that were filed by Karl-Heinz Scholz and Li&Co. As a consequence, licensees of Unilin Technologies could obtain additional protection on these patents, giving them an easier access to this mineral core product category. The parties have now agreed to further support the growth of the category by allowing i4F to grant sublicenses on the patent portfolio to its licensing base.
