i4F physically exhibiting at TISE Surfaces 2022; introducing 3 new technologies and experience centre aligned to its vision

  • i4F Booth 2437
  • True Grout® technology for SPC tiles and planks
  • New i4F drop-lock for herringbone
  • New i4F developed wall installation system

HAMONT, BELGIUM – i4F, a group of companies providing patents and technologies to the flooring industry, today announced that it is physically exhibiting at The International Surface Event (TISE) SURFACES 2022 on Booth 2437 taking place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas on 1-3 February, 2022.

This year, i4F’s 2000+ square feet booth is designed to demonstrate how its technologies are present in everyday life.  This aligns to the company’s vision to enhance where people live, work and play with ingenious technologies, from the floor upwards. It also supports i4F’s mission to continually revolutionize flooring, and beyond, through technological excellence, meaningful innovation and human partnerships. 

i4F is showcasing three new innovations:

  1. True Grout on SPC tiles + planks exclusively available from i4F’s surface finishing technologies cluster
  2.  i4F drop-lock system for Herringbone panels, i4F’s latest addition to its drop-lock technologies cluster
  3. i4F designed Wall Panel installation system, a new addition it its wall & ceilings technologies cluster

The company will physically demonstrate how its i-Click4U® – the world’s first water-resistant one-piece drop lock – far exceeds all NALFA requirements.  This, without the need for any chemical sprays or additional sealing substances, like wax or paraffin, normally required to prevent water leaking into flooring panel joints. 

i4F’s wide range of highly advanced digital printing technologies will be high profile on its booth. This includes Hymmen’s award-winning Digital Lacquer Embossing Plus (DLE+) technology offering unbelievably real optics and haptics exclusively available from i4F.

i4F’s new experience lounge will not only give visitors the opportunity to rest and relax during the show but also reveal how i4F innovations enhance environments, even if they are mostly invisible to end-users. The lounge also will operate live tests and let visitors try out new innovations for themselves. i4F will also unveil its installation challenge on the booth.

i4F’s CEO, John Rietveldt, says, “i4F is again present, in person, at TISE with the entire management team and we are raring to go! This year’s booth is stacked with new meaningful innovations and full of surprises!  Our experience lounge is not only a peaceful sanctuary where visitors can take some time out to relax, it is also designed to show them, first hand, how i4F is bringing to life its vision to enhance where people live, work and play with ingenious technologies, from the floor upwards.”
