LEXINGTON, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 13, 2007 -- Plasticon International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PLNI) is pleased to announce that their wholly owned subsidiary, SEMCO Manufacturing, Inc., has completed surfacing the concrete embankment on the I-515 Beltway Interchange for the Nevada Department of Transportation. The $241,000 contract called for the application of SEMCO's proprietary concrete sealants and anti-graffiti coating across a 76,400 square foot span of the interchange. Pictures of the completed project can be viewed on

SEMCO's protective coating system was chosen to prevent the absorption of water into the surface of the bridges, to mitigate the cleanup cost of graffiti, and also for its attractive color schemes. The new interchange joins Interstates 215 and 515 in Henderson, Nevada with a multitude of roads, bridges and ramps. The total cost of the Interchange project was $82,247,827, paid for by a combination of federal, state and local funds.

"We're excited to have completed the I-515 Beltway Interchange for the Nevada Department of Transportation. SEMCO's revolutionary products are saving tax payer dollars and helping to beautify the interstate," stated Jim Turek, President and CEO of Plasticon International, Inc.
