Introducing Mat Edging By Formtech

On January 12, 2018 | by Formtech | in Blog, What's New

 

We are proud to introduce the newest way we can serve you: Mat and carpet edging!

What is mat/carpet edging?

Mat/carpet edging accommodates products from all major manufacturers, including spaghetti mats, carpets, woven materials, as a transition material from floor to mat surface. The product helps to reduce trips, minimize the mat’s movement, and create a clean esthetic to showcase the mat or carpeting.

 

What’s special about our mat edging?

Our plastic compound is specially formulated to provide a smooth, matte, durable surface finish. Our premium edging resists scuffs and marring better than gloss or satin surface finishes, and is easier to clean and maintain. Our profiles are precise because we own the tooling and can maintain them, ensuring consistency, quality, and competitive pricing. Our team offers excellent service and product knowledge–if you have a question or need help, we are at your service.

 

Sizes available:

0.125″ Height Low Profile

 

 

0.250″ Height Medium Profile

 

 

0.320″ Height Mid-Range Profile

 

 

0.375″ Height High Profile

 

 

Don’t see a size that fits your needs?

Because we are a custom plastic extrusion company, we are able to offer sizes outside of these standard four options, larger or smaller. Please call or contact us today and we will get started on your project.

 

Colors available:

Black onyx, brown, and safety yellow are our stock colors available, though more colors are available upon request. You can call or contact us to see if your desired color is available for shipment.

Fun Fact Friday – Pasta!

On October 20, 2017 | by Formtech | in Blog, Featured News, What's New

I’m not sure I know anyone who doesn’t love pasta. Even the pickiest of toddlers enjoy the delicious, hearty, carb-filled food. October 17, 2017 was national pasta day. Mark your calendars next year to celebrate if you didn’t this past Tuesday! And as if having pasta in our lives wasn’t great enough, it comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes for our enjoyment. To make that possible, we rely on extrusion.

Each pasta–just like each plastic profile–comes from its uniquely shaped die.

Fun Fact Friday – NBA Wears Plastic Bottles Thanks to Nike

On August 25, 2017 | by Formtech | in Blog, Featured News, What's New

Nike never ceases to amaze us–did you know that the famous Nike swoosh was designed by a female college student in 1971 for $35? How about that they are now the official partner of the NBA, taking over from Adidas? Recently, Nike revealed the new jerseys for the 2017-18 season, and each uniform contains about 20 recycled PET bottles. The uniforms are spun together with a combination of Alpha Yarns and recycled polyester which is not only environmentally friendly, but wicks sweat 30% faster than current NBA uniforms as Nike claims.

This isn’t the first time Nike has used recycled PET in jerseys. Since 2010, Nike claims to have diverted more than 3 billion plastic bottles including uniforms for the U.S. basketball team during the Summer Olympics and the U.S. Women’s soccer team in the FIFA World Cup. The manufacturing process uses 30% less energy by utilizing recycled polyester rather than virgin polyester, benefiting Nike and saving plastic from landfills each year.

 

Bales of crushed PET bottles

 

It seems as though Nike has started yet another trend: Adidas is jumping on the recycled plastic bandwagon as well with the 2017 release of their “Parley” running shoes, using about 11 PET bottles throughout each shoe from plastic found in the ocean.
