Hymmen is delighted to celebrate its continuous success of the path breaking embossing technology DLEplus.
Taking a step towards natural flooring, Hymmen produced fantastic flooring samples with the Digital Lacquer Embossing (DLEplus) technology that can be hardly distinguish from original wood. The fantastic flooring has been produced in their technology center. Optics and haptics of these surfaces are so close to nature, that the user can hardly distinguish them from original wood.
With Hymmen Digital Lacquer Embossing (DLEplus) technology it is easy to achieve the high surface quality. More than 50 digital printing lines in the market show that many relevant market players trust in the reliable Hymmen technology.

With a width of 70 mm to 2,100 mm and only one digital pressure bar, the technology can be easily integrated into existing processes. Using just small amount of the structuring medium does not change any of the tried-and-tested properties of the varnish, such as hardness, adhesion, scratch resistance, and chemical resistance.
