Why does CONICA not sell tartan tracks?

From paper tissues, hair dryers and plastic sheets
Anyone who asks for a speed to wipe up a few Cola stains knows that it can also be a Pepsi that he wants to remove with a paper towel of any provenance. The trademarked product names have become generic names here, which are also used for competing products in general language. The end consumer has no legal consequences to fear for this minor negligence. However, a manufacturer must proceed more carefully. For example, only Elektrolux is allowed to call its hair dryers “Hairdryer” or “Foen”, which probably only very few end consumers know. They prefer to use a hairdryer or hair dryer – at least linguistically – rather than a hairdryer, regardless of which manufacturer the appliance comes from.
It is probably just as little known that there is also a brand name in the tartan track. Tartan was originally used by the technology group 3M to describe a plastic consisting of around 50% so-called polyisocyanates and 50% fillers and dyes. Since the first plastic sheets were made of this product, the name tartan sheet was soon adopted. In the meantime, of course, there are countless further developments based on completely different materials. This is why CONICA does not sell tartan tracks. But the right plastic sheeting for every application is guaranteed to be found in the portfolio.
