INTERZUM 2017



YOUR FURNITURE DESERVES IT.

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. First prototypes of a "glass edge in metallic colours" as well as a shock absorbing edge especially for children and youth furniture found the interest of our customers.  
Décor novelties matching the latest collections of the major manufacturers of wood-based panels completed our presentation at INTERZUM. A strong demand especially for ALPHA-TAPE® METALLICA LIGHT and ALPHA-TAPE® EXCELLENT MATT was registered.

OUR CAMPAIGN FOR POLYPROPYLENE:
MKT IS FOCUSSING ON PP AS THE EDGING MATERIAL FOR THE FUTURE!

Polypropylene (PP) is the plastic with the currently fastest growth worldwide. Even in the area of edge band production, its importance is growing significantly. Finally yet importantly, several positive characteristics and advantages compared to other plastic materials contribute to this development. Moreover, an individual adaptation of the polymer recipe can adjust the edge to the customers’ specific application and processing needs.
For the first time we presented our ALPHA-TAPE® FLEXIBLE edges in the "living" section of our INTERZUM booth in a direct application environment. In cooperation with ALVIC, Spain, and TECHNOPANNELS, Italy, we manufactured kitchen fronts, which enjoyed great popularity for their prominent presentation.
Our MKT polypropylene edge bands are currently available as ALPHA-TAPE® PP for hot-melt glue processing, ALPHA-TAPE ZERO® for all zero-joint -technologies as well as ALPHA-TAPE® FLEXIBLE for softforming applications.


 
ALREADY FINISHED – READY TO USE.
ALPHA-TAPE® DESIGN ALLIANCE

Meanwhile it has become common knowledge that MKT has almost at the same time an already sampled ALPHA-TAPE® edge at hand, similar in colour and print pattern to major décor novelties. The advantages are obvious. Subscribers of our newsletter are always well informed and up-to-date about ALPHA-TAPE® DESIGN ALLIANCE novelties. Alongside with current décors from INTERPRINT and SCHATTDEKOR, this time also recently sampled edges matching panel décors from EGGER and PFLEIDERER have been in the spotlight at INTERZUM. The feedback was as huge as in the past, because many of these décors including matching edge were shown only with MKT.

LOOKS LIKE METAL.
METALLICA LIGHT.


The ALPHA-TAPE® METALLICA LIGHT program will start with selected designs such as chrome, aluminium and stainless steel, complemented by modern and currently very trendy copper and bronze. ALPHA-TAPE® METALLICA LIGHT is based on state-of-the-art printing technology in a stunning photo-realistic print quality. In addition to the premium, genuine metal surface there is also an alternative as “Metal Look” -reproduction available, which will extend the range of application possibilities significantly.



SPECIAL EFFECTS.
EXCELLENT PEARL.

The continuous improvement of the interplay between printed image, embossing and gloss level is one of our major concerns and core competencies. For this purpose we only recently use newly developed metallic and pearl pigments in addition to extreme matt and glossy effects as in the APHA-TAPE® EXCELLENT program. We precisely adapt these to the printed image and the particularities of the embossing of the décor. This gives each edge a more differentiated gloss and a special haptics. 
Our subsidiary company PRINTEC, a highly specialized manufacturer of pigments, inks and lacquers, developed exclusively for MKT a unique printing ink that is based on the same pearl pigments, which are used for printing pearl decorative papers. This quality level has not been reached with thermoplastic edge banding yet, not even roughly comparable. As a result, the feedback of our customers towards the presented décors in pearl grey and pearl white, both in high-gloss and matt, was correspondingly positive. The exhibited prototypes bear this new generation of pigments..
