Patent for Sale:Solid-Core Waterproof Laminate
Production of a high-profit, truly moisture-resistant laminate flooring product, a solution for an open market segment.
The most widely spread complaint with existing laminate flooring products is the edge thickness swell (“buckling”) of the product after exposure to excessive moisture or water. In comparison, today’s specifications for laminate flooring allow a thickness swell up to 12% (for “heavy- commercial”) and up to 18% (for “residential”), when exposed to water (NALFA Test method). The patented technology under similar conditions, swells less than 0.8% (virtually not measurable or visible). Today’s laminate floor coverings are currently not specified by professionals like architects, & builders for hospitality or commercial applications (hotels, theaters, shopping malls, hospitals, airports, showrooms or other high-load, high-traffic areas) where moisture or spills occur frequently. Equally, the desire of many high-end home owners to continue the same floor covering of a hallway into the bath-, or washroom (wet room) is hampered by the inability of current laminate floors to perform in such environment.
The patented solid-core waterproof laminate closes this market segment and provides a high-return investment.
A totally GREEN Product and a solution for an OLD problem.
An effective, cost effective recycling of waste Polyurethane Rigid foams (PUR’s) from industrial manufacturing processes as well as end-of–life vehicles is still a large challenge, especially when these PUR’s are bonded to secondary materials (fiberglass, cloth, plastics, metals, etc.) These components are basically impossible to recycle with commonly developed methods on an industrial scale, and in a profitable manner. Therefore, currently only approx. 15% of such PU/PUR waste is being successfully recycled and reintroduced into new products, the rest ends up in landfills or is being incinerated for energy recovery.
The patented solid-core waterproof laminate is manufactured from 100% recycled materials, it qualifies for LEED & Greenguard certifications.
Primary Application of the Technology
Marine and CDX/MDO plywood, for end-uses in boat hulls, tractor trailer doors and school bus flooring
Production of sports flooring systems.
Outdoor billboard signs (replacement for plywood)
Decorative and structural (waterproof) panels for the RV and boat industry
