SKINS® SANDY

Sandy: “Texture is so important for many products these days. My grainy feel helps designers and convertors give all kinds of packaging – especially for food – a ‘real’ touch that consumers absolutely love.”

If it’s texture you need, Skins® Sandy can provide it, from super fine to super gritty, without all the usual fuss. She can add a new dimension to all kinds of paper, board and flexible packaging applications and is also very hardwearing thanks to excellent rub and water resistance. She brings a great tactile experience that’s easy to apply, no paddling necessary. She’s easy to formulate and is suitable for multiple substrates and printing techniques.

With waterborne resins Sandy is sustainable, free of residual VOCs and even FDA/FCC/ Swiss Ordinance compliant, so it’s perfect for food packaging.

Easy-to-apply, overprint, Sandy varnish
Sandy is very easy to work with. It can be easily applied using conventional flexo or gravure system and equipment, Sandy is easy to clean once you’re finished and has good in-can stability.

Print performance
Sandy can be applied to multiple substrates, paper, PE, BOPP, aluminium and PET. It can also be applied with multiple printing techniques, such as 1K and 2K.

Formulation
It’s an easy to formulate, stable varnish with a top coat process, so no fillers and no paddling or dusting.

SKINS® SANDY EXPERTISE

Skins® Sandy is very versatile with a huge ‘sellability’ potential. Her broad food contact compliancy makes her ideal for food products including biscuit wrappers, bottle wrappers or spaghetti packaging. She’s also equally at home on non-food packaging such as swimwear products (for the feel of the beach!). Find out more about her technical skills by downloading her resume.

SANDY'S INSPIRATION

“When you grab a bottle, all you normally feel is smooth, cold glass. I like to bring a bit more texture to the party and give people something to remember!”
