SEMCO Announces McCarren International Airport Surfacing Contract

LEXINGTON, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 25, 2006 -- Plasticon International Inc. (OTC: PLNI) announced today that SEMCO Manufacturing, Inc. was chosen as a surfacing vendor by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and McCarren International Airport. McCarren International Airport is located in Las Vegas and is owned and operated by Clark County, Nevada. Plasticon International, Inc. recently completed the acquisition of SEMCO.

According to SEMCO Manufacturing, the company's surfacing system was chosen for the project because McCarren International Airport required a solution that offered creative flexibility and preserved the airport's structure for long term use. "During the project design and specification stage of this project, the FAA and Clark County reviewed the options and ultimately selected SEMCO because our surfacing system not only meets FAA requirements -- it exceeds them. The incredible durability of SEMCO's surfacing system makes us the logical choice for this project, particularly since preservation of the structure is a high priority for McCarren International Airport," said Samel Sem, President and founder of SEMCO Manufacturing. "Our surfacing systems are renowned for their durability and versatility and are not only used extensively indoors, but also on heavily-trafficked outdoor walkways, on rugged exteriors and in extreme outdoor weather, including freeze/thaw conditions. Additionally, McCarren International Airport will benefit from the creative freedom and protective features of our surfacing technology. For example, our environmentally responsible surfacing systems will give McCarren the ability to produce a more creative, appealing exterior wall with virtually unlimited choices for color and texture, and our surfacing system will also protect the wall from both the fumes of airplanes and graffiti. Finally, our unique surfacing technology, which chemically cross links to virtually any surface it is applied to, completely waterproofs the surface, which is critical to preserving the structure for long term use."

According to Jim Turek, President and CEO of Plasticon International, Inc., "As the producer of the most advanced surfacing system in the market today, we believe that SEMCO will continue to gain momentum in the $100 billion + surfacing industry. We look forward to continuing to work with SEMCO to expand their marketing efforts so that we can gain market share in the massive surfacing industry. We will also be making several significant announcements regarding SEMCO in the near future."

SEMCO Manufacturing, based in Las Vegas, Nevada since 1991, has provided their surfacing products to many of the city's most impressive showcase projects, including a number of 5 star luxury resorts. Their eclectic customer base also includes high profile commercial, public and private clientele. Projects have ranged from critical government facilities (the flooring of the Pentagon) to elementary schools, community centers and many prominent parks and public works projects to the Bioshpere project, where the SEMCO team provided the materials for the creation of a lush, fully functioning indoor rainforest. SEMCO's product line is noted for its incredible durability which is why it is often used on heavily-trafficked outdoor walkways, in extreme outdoor weather, freeze/thaw conditions, and in chlorinated pool water and on rugged exteriors. SEMCO Manufacturing has offices in the U.S., Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia.

Plasticon's acquisition of SEMCO Manufacturing, Inc. has been completed, and is now awaiting SEC approval.
