About Us


Derived from the Greek word eikon, or image, the fundamental business of IKONICS® is the creation and transfer of physical and visual images. Through processes based in photochemistry, abrasive etching, chemical etching and other technologies, IKONICS participates in a diverse spectrum of markets. From traditional and high-tech screen printing, to decorative and industrial etching and imaging, IKONICS conducts business in over 90 countries.


IKONICS has served as an international leader in the development of imaging technologies since the mid-20th Century. IKONICS proudly introduces products and process solutions for a diverse array of imaging markets. At the core of IKONICS’ success is the ability to quickly adapt our fundamental, commercial and technological competencies to the needs of image-consumers everywhere.

IKONICS Technology

Traditionally, IKONICS’ technical strengths have been photochemistry and coated films. Our team of chemists and engineers have developed unique skill sets along with proprietary and patented products. These skills and products give IKONICS a strong IP base and advantage in our core markets and a platform on which to grow into new markets.


In August of 2022, IKONICS was acquired by Saati S.p.A. based in Appiano Gentile, Italy. This pivotal integration into the SAATI family marks a significant milestone for IKONICS, enhancing its capabilities to deliver comprehensive and competitive imaging solutions in the global marketplace. In addition, innovation is accelerated through the collaboration of research and development teams from both entities. We are now SAATI Advanced Chemicals, LLC dba IKONICS.


IKONICS employs approximately 50 full-time employees, 45 of whom are located at the company’s headquarters in Duluth, MN, the remaining five are serving as outside technical sales representatives in various locations around the United States.
