Plasticon International, Inc. Subsidiary Awarded Nevada Beltway Construction Contract Valued at Over $240,000

LEXINGTON, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 31, 2006 -- Plasticon International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PLNI) is pleased to announce that the Nevada Department of Transportation has awarded Semco Distribution, Inc., a subsidiary of the Company, a $241,850 contract for the surfacing of the concrete embankment at the I-515 Beltway Interchange in Nevada. The project involves the application of Semco's proprietary concrete sealants and anti-graffiti coating.

Semco's coating system was chosen to allow the Nevada Department of Transportation an opportunity to use a more attractive color combination, to eliminate the absorption of water into the surface of the structure and to mitigate the cleanup cost of graffiti with their protective coating. The new interchange joins Interstates 215 and 515 in Henderson, Nevada with numerous roads, bridges ands ramps. The total cost of the Interchange project is $82,247,827, paid for by a combination of federal, state and local funds.

"We believe that as environmental regulations increase, the worldwide demand for Semco's surfacing systems may grow. We now offer a total waterproofing solution for major construction projects. Our unique re-bar support products with Semco's concrete coating is a combination that will provide countless opportunities for us to sell both Plasticon and Semco products to the same customers on the same projects," stated Plasticon President and CEO Jim Turek.

Based in Las Vegas, Semco manufactures, markets, and sells custom surfacing products to high profile commercial, public and private clientele. Its product line is noted for its cosmetic appeal and durability for use in heavily used walkways, extreme outdoor conditions and in chlorinated pools. Plasticon completed the acquisition of Semco Distribution, Inc. and Ultimate Surface, LLC on January 1, 2006.
