CHICAGO (Aug. 8, 1 p.m. EDT) — Tech Mark Inc. is moving its foil technology into the plastics extrusion business from its traditional home in the woodworking industry.
With plastics taking more of the market from wood in everything from window frames to mirrors and interior trim, it makes sense to transfer some of the wood decorating systems to plastics as well, said Joseph Moriconi, national sales manager for Tech Mark of North Little Rock, Ark.
“There are a lot of decorating capabilities out there,” he said. “We know the market and the potential is there for it to probably double.”
Tech Mark's foil technology can provide the look of metal or stone to an extruded product, either in-line or off-line, he said.
