TS3 receives U.S. Patent for Face Bonding



It's official: The frontal connection of wooden components with TS3 technology has been patented in the USA since the beginning of 2020. This is already the second important US patent after that for building structures with columns, column heads and panels for floor slabs from November 2018.

The TS3 brand has been registered in the United States of America since 2017. The "United States Patent and Trademark Office", the patent office of the United States of America, has recognized TS3 as a trademark. The trademark registration in the USA had the consequence that the trademark TS3 may not be used by any other company in the USA in connection with timber construction products.   

In 2018, a first patent was granted to protect building structures with columns, column heads and slabs for floor slabs. The second patent  is for frontal connection of wooden components and protects the second key technology of TS3. This is an important milestone for TS3. "At last we can be sure that our technology is really protected in the USA and that we can take legal action against imitators," says Stefan Zöllig, the intellectual father of the technology.   

The investors are also pleased

The patent is also important economically. After the protection of the brand and the two core technologies of TS3, the value of TS3 AG and thus also that of the shares increases. The US market is about the same size and therefore important for TS3 as the whole European market.
