QuietWalk Manufacturers receive 2 new patents

Norfolk, Nebraska, USA, January 8, 2013 - MP Global Products announced today that the U.S. Patent
and Trademark Office has issued Patent No. US 8,341,910 B2 and Patent No. 8,341,911 B2 to Alan B.
Collison and Chad A. Collison, president and vice president, respectively, of MP Global Products. The
patents protect MP Global’s QuietWalk® underlayment for laminate floors that improves acoustic and
thermal insulation properties and provides crack resistance.
Issued on January 1, 2013, the patents expand on earlier patents issued to MP Global Products that are
directed to its underlayment technology and add to MP Global’s protection against counterfeit imitators.
The patents are testament to the unique design and superior manufacturing processes that make MP
Global Products underlayment the highest performing underlayment for laminate flooring on the market
“Underlayment is no place to cut corners. Quality of the entire installation suffers
with inferior products of counterfeit imitators,” notes Al Collison, also the founder of
MP Global Products. “While installed underlayment is unseen, its performance
is perceived throughout the life of the floor installation.”
Patented, always reliable MP Global underlayments offer
unmatched quality and unmatched performance. There are many
features that distinguish MP Global’s patented underlayments
from inferior imitations, including composition, thickness,
compression resistance, and compression set.
Unlike other underlayment products, QuietWalk®
underlayment is third party certified by Scientific
Certification Systems (SCS) at 94% recycled content
and is also SCS certified Indoor Advantage Gold as
a contributor to healthy indoor air quality (no VOCs)
which clears the way for use in schools, hospitals and
government buildings. It is also LEED compliant for use
in Green building projects.
Made in the USA with an impeccable record of on-time
delivery, MP Global’s underlayment products have stood
the test of time - over one billion installed square feet and
thousands of satisfied customers.
