IKONICS Corporation was incorporated in Minnesota as Chroma-Glo, Inc. in 1952 and changed its name to The Chromaline Corporation in 1982. In December 2002, the Company changed its name to IKONICS Corporation. The Company's traditional business has been the development, manufacture and selling of photosensitive liquids ("emulsions") and films for the screen printing and awards and recognition industries. The Company has four primary technology platforms: Ultraviolet (UV) chemistry, film coating and construction, technical abrasive etching, and industrial inkjet printing. The Company's traditional products and new initiatives are based on these platforms and their combinations. The Company's Chromaline branded products for the screen printing industry and Ikonics Imaging products for the awards and recognition market are based on UV chemistry and film coating and construction capabilities; the Micro-Machining offering is a combination of UV chemistry, film coating and construction and technical abrasive etching capabilities; DTX is a combination of UV chemistry, film coating and construction, and industrial inkjet printing. There is overlap and synergy in the market between the Chromaline, Ikonics Imaging, Micro-Machining and DTX product offerings, and the Company offers ancillary products, including equipment and software, to provide customers with a total solution. The Company currently has approximately 200 domestic and international distributors for its Chromaline and ImageMate screen printing emulsions and films. The Company's abrasive etching products are sold directly to end users in the awards and recognition market under the Ikonics Imaging brand. Micro-Machining products are sold either directly to users or the Company offers Micro-Machining as a service. DTX is sold to users as a system, with strategic partners providing the specialized industrial inkjet printers and the Company selling the consumable inks and transfer films. DTX sales are both direct to users and through distribution. The Company markets and sells its products through magazine advertising, trade shows and the internet. The primary raw materials used by IKONICS in its production are photopolymers, polyester films, polyvinylacetates, polyvinylalcohols and water.
