SKINS®
BY COVESTRO

MEET OUR SKINS®: RUBBERT, SANDY, SILKY AND VEL-VEETO

They’re a fun bunch and love to add character to packaging with special coatings. They open up a whole new world of creative opportunities and tactile sensations for packaging design. And for much higher volumes than was previously possible.

They may be fun, but there’s lots of serious science behind them. It’s all down to a thing called haptic perception, that’s the feeling between human skin and surfaces. Skins® play around with things like stiffness and surface properties to create lots of exciting new tactile opportunities.

These innovative print finishing products are brought to you by Covestro, with years of experience in haptic coatings. We can work with you to provide a total solution to your coating needs, one that feels just right.

SKINS® SANDY

Skins® Sandy has many sides for you to discover, from super fine to positively gritty. Not only gorgeous, she’s also light as a feather, economical and very eco. Packaging, bottle wrappers, biscuit boxes and even spaghetti packages love her.

Sandy says:
“I’ve got a good feeling about this!”

SKINS® RUBBERT

Rubbert is our tough guy. Bouncy and always ready for some rough and tumble, he loves wrapping himself around high-tech stuff and gadgets. He can give your headphones or laptop a super stylish matte look with a cool rubbery feel.

Rubbert says:
“It’s time to bounce, baby.”

SKINS® SILKY 

Silky is soft, delicate and sensitive. She’s the one that adds that luxurious feel to things like skincare, perfume and make-up packaging.

Silky says:
“Smoothly does it, every time.”

SKINS® VEL-VEETO 

Vel-Veeto is already well established in the world of haute couture. Sharp looking and a real soft touch, he brings a lot of class to many household names in the packaging world.

Vel-Veeto says:
“A touch of luxury, a ton of class.”
