- Ezy-Warm Underfloor Heating – highly energy efficient, hassle-free system powered by renewable energy
- Make every step count with modular sensor flooring
- Insight and design flexibility combined
From Our First Resin Patent
Our timeline of innovation begins back in 2016 when following collaboration and development work together, global manufacturer 3M assigned a joint patent to IOBAC for a rapid-setting magnetically receptive vapour permeable coating.
We commercialised this as our first product, IOBAC Express Cure Resin, a super fast curing resin that forms a permanent, durable base onto which a wide range of floor coverings can be fixed adhesive-free.
Installed once, the resin base stays intact, enabling quick and easy repairs and design changes.
To Metalized Coating Development
From there, we’ve developed our expertise in different resin chemistries containing metal additives, from quick-curing polyaspartic resins to collaborating on a polyurethane resin that combines magnetism with dry-tack.
This patented Dual-Grip technology provides the “Hard to Shift, Easy to Lift” properties within our Quick Cure Magnetically Receptive Resin giving maximum hold between the resin base and floor covering in high traffic areas.
And thanks to our years of experience in magnetic flooring, we have provided consultation services to several flooring manufacturers wanting to magnetise their products. We can advise on suitable coatings and high strength magnetic films, supporting the magnetisation process for magnetic wood and other flooring types.
To Developing Applications
In addition to resins, we’ve also developed our technologies for different methods of application.
From collaborating with an underlay manufacturer to develop a dry laid magnetically receptive underlay (Ezy-Install Underlay) to creating our clever attachment tabs for flooring installation on most common prepared sub-floors (MagTabs® and Tab-It®), our adhesive-free installation methods cover all built environments.
To Solving Problems
We’re often seen as problem-solvers with customers asking us whether our technologies can help improve their current processes.
Both our fixing systems were as a result of this, and use Dual-Grip technology applied to very different problems.
To creating tile access panels quickly, accurately and with easy access with Ezy-Fit Tile Access Panel Kits, to stopping rugs moving, preventing slips and protecting floors in the case of Ezy-Rug Gripper Kits.
To Expanding Our Footprint
By collaborating with experts in graphene super-conductive additives, we’ve invented and patented new to the world floor and wall coatings that efficiently heat rooms (either via solar panels or DC or AC supply). Our Ezy-Warm System uses this technology for simple, highly efficient underfloor heating.
Pronounced as “I-Owe-Back” to the environment, our company was founded on the belief that there had to be a better way to manage flooring throughout its life-cycle.
We set out to develop technologies that facilitate flooring reuse, eliminate flooring landfill waste and protect valuable building assets.
