Bill Ulland, IKONICS CEO, said: These disappointing results partially reflect the markets we serve that are being adversely affected by the current trade war and resulting tariffs.

However, he continued, there are some bright spots. Our newly introduced IKONART product, which we sell into the craft market, is substantially exceeding sales and profit expectations and will be featured on the Home Shopping Network in January and the new PBS show ‘Make It Artsy’ to be shown in various time slots.

He added: Sales of our IKONICS IMAGING business unit, which sells IKONART, are up 15% over the third quarter of 2018.

AMS, our aerospace business, is bidding on several major jet engine projects and feedback from these customers is encouraging, although the sales cycle in aerospace is long, Ulland said.

Our mold etching joint research program, which combines our DTX patented films with AKK’s patented printing technology, is progressing as we have just received the AKK printer to accelerate the test work, he said.
