i4F’s unique Patent Cluster Concept (PCC)

Pick and choose the patents or groups of patents that best suit your business needs. i4F’s PCC lets licensees decide which technologies will reinforce their market position – or open up new revenue streams as trends change. Our PCC also provides full transparency on license fees so that licensees can obtain the best return on investment while avoiding unnecessary payments for unused patented technologies.

i4F Board composition logo

i4F innovation takes many everyday flooring issues in its stride. Breakthrough magnesium oxide (MgO) veneer board reduces moisture intake and flammability, absorbs sound and uses less real wood. Meanwhile our static-control, dissipative flooring makes sensitive, high-traffic areas like operating theatres and computer rooms safer and easier to maintain.
