Unilin Technologies


Unicoat upgrades the water-resistant properties of a wood-based floor enormously. The coating technology, known from Quickstep, Pergo and Mohawk products as “Hydroseal” or “Wetprotect” serves a triple purpose. Firstly, the coating will prevent water from penetrating in between the joints of two flooring panels hence stopping any water to get underneath the floor where it could cause mold. Secondly, Unicoat forms a shielding layer on the edges of the floorboards which will prevent swelling of wood-based core materials. Lastly, this shielding layer will also prevent discoloring of a wooden top-layer. Unilin Technologies launches Unicoat as licensable technology to the flooring industry at Surfaces.
