On the technology side, the focus is more than ever on further enhancing customer experience and address some of the important issues faced by the flooring industry. Visitors will be able to see, touch, feel and experience those latest innovations.
Feel the difference with Liteback® – light weight, heavy impact
Do you wonder if there is a lighter, more efficient, more sustainable, and user-friendly way to produce, transport, store, deliver, and install resilient flooring? Say hello to Liteback® — light weight, heavy impact.
With the patented Liteback® technology, you get up to a 20% lighter product. That’s about 7.7 pounds less per package — which translates into savings in shipping costs, home delivery that’s more efficient, and a smaller environmental footprint. On the Välinge booth at TISE, visitors will clearly be able to feel the difference between resilient floors with or without Liteback and calculate how much weight and cost can be saved on their specific products.
Experience Hygienius™ – The invisible room cleaner
A hardwood or resilient floor with Hygienius™ integrated in its lacquer layer enables a natural photocatalytic process to take place when exposed to daylight or indoor light. This allows harmful emissions and unpleasant odors to be broken down as well as degradation of bacteria, fungi and even virus on the surface. Hygienius™ also makes it easier to remove dirt, minimize unattractive moisture streaks and allows the flooring to dry more quickly.
See the Wonders of 5G® Dry™ – Designed for floors for life
5G Dry is the premium, water-resistant fold-down locking system — offering the easiest, fastest, and strongest installation in the industry. 5G Dry pairs incredibly well with both laminate and resilient floors, as well as hardened wood and engineered wood — creating a watertight joint that prevents liquids from penetrating the floor’s surface and from damaging the sub-floor. Välinge will demonstrate how this ground-breaking technology lives up to its promise and opens new opportunities to create worry-free floors.
Learn More About Topshell™ – The protective wear layer for thermoplastic flooring
Topshell™ is a revolutionary type of protective wear layer foil, providing superior wear resistance without increasing the thickness of the wear layer or opening for thinner wear layer to be used, without compromising wear resistance. With true wear resistance, the lifespan and the visual appearance of the flooring will last longer, compared to floors with traditional wear layers. Topshell replaces conventional wear layer without changing anything in the existing LVT/SPC or PVC-free resilient flooring production process.
In addition, Välinge will highlight several innovative solutions and design features such as wall panel installation with 5G Climb, advanced pattern installations made easy as well as decorative groove solutions for resilient flooring.
