The KATZ Group presented its first insulation underlay at Domotex 2014 under the brand name ‘GREEN LIGNIN basic’.
In 2015 it launched a premium version called ‘GREEN LIGNIN anti-slip’, which is specially designed to be compatible with modern floating vinyl and designer flooring up to 5 mm thick.
The 2016 trade fair season saw the launch of yet another innovation – GREEN LIGNIN hydro-tec, featuring water-repellent hydro-tec technology. The all-round excellence of this ground-breaking development caught the eye of the company LI&CO AG from Müstair, Switzerland, one of the leading producers of cork, designer PVC and linoleum floor coverings. Now LI&CO has announced it will be presenting a new product featuring a GREEN LIGNIN hydro-tec backing layer at the Domotex 2017 fair in Hanover (Hall 9, Booth B 13).


Micodur is a perfectly stable mineral core board combined with the outstanding versatility of HotCoating surface technology. Available in a huge range of designs produced using the very latest digital printing technology, Micodur is a superb flooring for virtually any room. Thanks to the use of GREEN LIGNIN hydro-tec room and impact sound insulation as an eco-friendly backing, LICO Micodur offers impressive functionality and performance. With a reduction of up to 19 dB in impact sound plus a 35% reduction in room sound, this product makes life more comfortable by improving indoor acoustics.
And if you are looking for a non-polluting natural product, you couldn’t pick a better flooring than Micodur! Thanks to its natural components and the GREEN LIGNIN hydro-tec backing layer, this product is a great choice for bedrooms and children’s rooms and the perfect solution for anyone who suffers from allergies.

Micodur flooring with a GREEN LIGNIN hydro-tec backing has been available since mid-2016. The product has already been provided to various satisfied customers, and everything is now ready for its official launch at Domotex 2017 in Hanover.
“We have a reputation for top-notch quality to uphold, so we need top-of-the-range materials. GREEN LIGNIN hydro-tec is an eco-friendly backing layer that offers a great balance of price and performance. Coupled with our eco-friendly, waterproof Micodur flooring, it achieves the perfect combination for truly sustainable results,” says Edwin Lingg, managing director of LI&CO AG.
