THE METAL EFFECT TRREND.
A new generation of pigments combined with an improving printing technology makes it possible to harmoniously integrate metal tones as accent colors into the printed image of the décor or to use them specifically as an eye-catcher for plain colors. Metallic effects, silver shades and metallic colors become more and more indispensable and are also an integral part of décor development at leading board manufacturers by now.

MKT decided to specifically expand and further develop this type of product, which is also extremely demanding in terms of printing technology.
In order to enable a better differentiation, please note that all ALPHA-TAPE® edges with metal pigments will no longer be listed under the product design "HR" but as "ME" (METAL EFFECT)

THE EDGE BANDING FOR SOFT FORMING APPLICATIONS – Extremely flexible, but also enormously resilient and durable: that is the new ALPHA-TAPE® FLEXIBLE.  Thanks to a specific thermo plastic polymer composition we succeeded for the first time in creating plastic edging material for coating and soft forming applications, for which in the past only foils and melamine edges have been used. ALPHA-TAPE® FLEXIBLE is similar to coating foil – 2-dimenional ductile, and thus, perfect for applications with recessed grips, doors and molded furniture parts.
