Welcome to MKT

YOUR FURNITURE DESERVES IT.

We focus on the interplay of the decor, embossing and gloss level to improve the “natural” effect even further. This applies to both tropical woods and to decorative timbers of local origin, which are becoming increasingly sought after. Oak, ash and elmwood experience a revival either in “saw-cut version” or “vintage style”. Every edging solution bears the experience of some thousands of edging decors having been matched in the past in a multitude of colour shades, surfaces, gloss and structure. This gives our customers the certainty to receive ALPHA-TAPE® edge banding perfectly matched to their sample.

For more than 25 years MKT stands for in-depth industry
expertise in the development and manufacturing of
thermoplastic edge banding branded ALPHA-TAPE®
.

MKT-Newsletter #07 Metameric-free colour series
MKT succeeded in eliminating metamerism problems with its newly developed colour series
when switching from D65/simulated daylight to TL84/ simulated office-light.
The in-house
development was supported by a close and direct cooperation between MKT and PRINTEC.
The PRINTEC GmbH is a subsidiary company of MKT specialized in printing inks and pigment
preparations and situated in Ernstroda / Thuringia. This means that this new generation of
colours is exclusively reserved for MKT.

INTERZUM 2017 - Our detailed rieview

INTERZUM AS THE LEADING FAIR FOR PRODUCT INNVOVATION AND DECOR NOVELTIES IS ALSO FOR MKT FIRST CHOICE, SINCE ALSO THE BIG DECOR PRINTERS AND BOARD MANUFACTURERS ARE HERE TO PRESENT THEIR NEW PRODUCTS.
In this environment it always means something extraordinary, to show product novelties and trends to a wide audience. One could evaluate new developments already at an early stage within a small circle of selected customers for their future market viability. As a result, our booth was highly frequented by a broad, international audience.
This time our presentation put emphasis on several points. Right in the centre of our booth, most important novelties of the ALPHA-TAPE® DESIGN ALLIANCE were on display. For the presentation of ALPHA-TAPE® FLEXIBLE, we had an area of its own. We designed a "lounge" area with furniture for outdoor use based on PP-honeycomb boards with ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® PP-edging. This way we created a rest place, which we used for the presentation of and discussion about specific "latest" innovations, new developments and drafts for the future, all around the topic ALPHA-TAPE® PP, as well as our range of embossings...

ALPHA-TAPE® FLEXIBLE PP  – First choice for softforming application.
Available with our METALLICA real metal surface and as EXCELLENT GLOSS or EXCELLENT MATT version as well.

Extremely flexible, but also tremendously resilient and durable: that’s ALPHA-TAPE® FLEXIBLE.  Thanks to a specific thermoplastic polymer composition we succeeded for the first time in creating plastic edging material for wrapping and softforming applications, for which in the past only foils and melamine edges have been used. ALPHA-TAPE® FLEXIBLE is similar to wrapping foil – 2-dimenional ductile, and thus, perfect for applications with recessed grips, doors and molded furniture parts.

Dirt and moisture cannot penetrate into the fully
welded edge joint.

Compare to any other no-joint edge bandings,
ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® can be fully welded
with itself.


ALPHAP-TAPE ZERO®


In the MULTILAYER process, ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® is fully welded in several layers on top of one another. The thick edge produced in this way will still be firm and homogeneous despite its many layers. ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® is highly versatile. It can be fully welded with our conventional ALPHA-TAPE® PP edge bandings and with itself. ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® can be used for light-weight construction or plastic honeycomb pannels as well.

YOUR FURNITURE DESERVES IT. IL TUO MOBILE NE HA BISOGNO.
OUR IMPRESSIONS FROM SICAM 2016, PORDENONE.


After repositioning on the Italian market at the end of 2015, SICAM has been for MKT its first major participation in a trade fair in Italy. The expectations connected to it have been exceeded by far and are encouragingly positive. In addition to the numerous visitors from Italy, our booth has attracted crowds of international visitors as well. That was certainly also due to the massive increase in the international importance of SICAM, but mainly to the successful transfer of our ALPHA-TAPE® DESIGN ALLIANCE concept onto the extremely demanding Italian market.

Dopo il riposizionamento sul mercato italiano risalente alla fine del 2015, per MKT la SICAM è stato il primo grande appuntamento fieristico in Italia. L’evento ha ampiamente superato in senso positivo ogni più rosea aspettativa. Accanto ai numerosi visitatori provenienti dall’Italia, il nostro stand ha infatti registrato soprattutto una vivace affluenza anche da parte di visitatori internazionali. Ciò si deve certamente alla forte crescita della reputazione internazionale di SICAM, ma anche alla riuscita introduzione sull’esigente mercato italiano del nostro sistema denominato
ALPHA-TAPE® DESIGN ALLIANCE.
