SKINS® RUBBERT

Rubbert: "These days electronics can be a bit ‘me-too’. But with my help, designers can make their products really stand out with a cool touch of rubber here and there. Best of all, it’s not even difficult to apply!”

Skins® Rubbert gives a whole new twist to print or packaging. His soft touch rubbery feel not only feels amazing, but helps with grip and enhances the ergonomics of designs. It’s a great way to create interaction with products, by giving them a much more comfortable experience.

The transparency and matte look make text and graphics really stand out so they’re more visible on the shelf, especially on dark colours and black. Skins ® Rubbert gives an amazingly luxurious and sophisticated effect that is becoming more and more popular.

Easy to start, consistent, high quality, Rubbert feel
Transforming packaging with such a soft touch rubber coating isn’t difficult. You can simply replace your current overprint varnish with Skins® Rubbert industrial non-slip coating. This Skin has a proven track record. He’s easy to use with standard equipment, whether it is a flexo, gravure or flexo printing press, can be applied in thin layers and high speed processing is possible.

Print performance
Thanks to high transparency and low reflectivity, colour depth, text and image visibility are all enhanced. And colors can be given different gloss levels by overprinting. Skins® Rubbert loves being printed on multiple substrates, like PE, BOPP, Aluminum and PET. But it’s on paper where Skins® Rubbert performs best.

This rubber feel is available as a waterborne skin, making it FDA/FCC/Swiss Ordinance compliant and can be recyclable. So it can be used for all markets, food and non-food.

Formulation
This rubbery varnish is easy to apply, stable and can be applied using conventional flexo or gravure system. The formulation accommodates a broad range of printing techniques and 100% UV and Non-UV jobs.
