Välinge’s Liteback technology enables thermoplastic flooring products to be made up to 20% lighter by milling grooves in the core. The material removed in the process can be recycled for production of more flooring, thereby reducing material consumption. Increased raw material utilization and more lightweight products enable more efficient transportation. This means that Liteback opens up opportunities to significantly lower the levels of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere.
“We have noticed a significantly increased interest in Liteback over the last year or so. When we present the numbers to producers and retailers, the reaction is that Liteback is a natural step forward for them to both lower their own environmental impact and to offer their customers a more sustainable alternative,” said Per Josefsson, director, plastic floor technology.
