We're excited to showcase SetaGrip Technology at Buildings NY and educate the industry on a new, efficient, and innovative installation method. - David Kim, NuFlors Managing Partner
NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 03, 2018
New York based LVT flooring expert, NuFlors will highlight their new SetaGrip flooring at the upcoming Buildings NY show held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. NuFlors, a leader in the Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) flooring industry, launched the new patent pending technology January of this year and has already seen the flooring industry embrace this revolutionary installation technology. NuFlors has added SetaGrip™ Technology into their flooring manufacturing process to create a cost effective and efficient flooring option. The patent pending vacuum suction layer uses nano-sized pores to generate a strong adhesion that solves the installation and maintenance problems brought on by other LVT products and installation methods. For over a decade LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile) flooring has continued to gain recognition, however, several problems continued to arise with the massive use of LVT in the current market. The existing LVT flooring typically uses one of four installation methods: “glue- down”, “click system”, “loose lay”, and “peel-and-stick”- and they are all problematic.
SetaGrip looks to nature to find the answer. It’s no secret that the greatest innovations come from nature. Nature has inspired solutions for everyday challenges including those in design. Scientists have studied the feet of geckos and have found that they contain physical properties that promote stickiness. Using biomimicry, we studied the gecko and began looking into nano-suction technology. This technology uses millions of nano-sized pores, vacuum and negative fluid pressure to securely adhere any object to a flat, non-porous surface. We applied this technique into our flooring manufacturing process and SetaGrip was born. With SetaGrip™ Technology, the flooring is pressed against a surface, activating the nano-sized pores. Essentially, these act like millions of micro-suction cups which when in contact with the surface generates a strong adhesion.
“SetaGrip™ is the world’s first true hybrid, glueless system. The innovative technology behind this new all-in-one solution allows for adhesion just as well as traditional glue down methods without the use of an adhesive. Quick install products such as loose lay and click cannot match the value of this technology." says NuFlors Managing Partner, David J Kim. “SetaGrip’s nano-suction technology allows floors to be easily installed, replaced, and reused." The patented core layer is specially formulated with white ceramic to provide extra dimensional stability and resistance to shrinking and expanding due to environmental and other forces. This keeps the planks dimensionally stable and helps with expansion and contractions when installed in various temperature-changing scenarios.
Buildings NY brings together over 6,000 industry professionals and 400 suppliers to highlight and discuss the latest innovations for the building industry. The two day event offers a large exhibit area where vendors can showcase the newest products along with educational sessions for attendees to keep up-to-date on the latest industry trends. NuFlors will participate as an exhibitor showcasing SetaGrip Technology in Booth 720.
