A UK company is manufacturing moulded Acrylic and PVC tile panels that can be installed over existing tiles or any level surface. The product can be fitted in at least 1/3 of the time it would take to install regular tiles. The company has a patented seamless joining system, 100% waterproof, with no profiles or joining strips. The company is looking to find a partner who will take a stake in their business and also make direct investment to help them take things global under a joint venture/financial agreement.
Innovations and advantages
The UK company have patents on the design of the panels and the joining system. The advantage is the panels look and feel like tiling but without the associated problems of cracking, mould and cost. The company can print any design onto them. All other waterproof paneling systems use either a tongue & groove or profile joining system which means a join will be seen every meter. When the company's panels are fitted there are no visible joins. The company's products also have the following advantages: - are easy to clean and maintenance-free - are 20% more thermally efficient than tiling. - are 100% recyclable (reducing landfill). - are at least 40% cheaper than tiling.
