Of all our senses, touch is the only one that is dispersed across our entire bodies yet its influence on how we appreciate the world around us is often overlooked. Like to find out more on tactile effects?
Skins® are Covestro’s innovative new print finishing wizards. Equally happy on flexo, gravure or offset, they use microtechnology to give your products a whole new look and feel. These little guys are fast too – able to complete a soft touch varnish job in a single pass!
How do they do it? By understanding the science of touch and the printing process. They know their chemistry inside-out and so create soft feel coatings that have the right suppleness, smoothness, roughness, stiffness, velvety-ness, rubbery-ness… whatever feel you’re after. Basically they create the right chemistry between a product and the customer’s sense of touch.
