MEET SKINS® SILKY

Silky: “Pharma and cosmetics companies are always asking me to help out. Is it my personality? Actually I reckon it’s the silky smooth texture I add which complements their USPs.”

Skins® Silky gives print or packaging the beautiful texture of silk, often felt on finished skincare, perfume and make-up products. She transforms cosmetic packaging designs, giving them that feeling of real indulgence.

She also have a very practical side, with a low viscosity that makes her well suited for use in flexographic printing or varnishing units. Silky’s good rub resistance and high slip level means she helps packaging always look its best.

Easy to start, consistent, high quality, Silky feel
This Skin has a proven track record. It’s easy to use with standard equipment, can be applied in thin layers and high speed processing is possible.

 

Print performance
Silky delivers a deep matte and is capable of tone on tone, so is guaranteed to enhance the appearance of any packaging.

It can be printed on multiple substrates, like paper, PE, BOPP, aluminium and PET and colors can be given different gloss levels by overprinting. And of course, it can be recyclable, as its waterborne formulation makes it FDA/FCC/Swiss Ordinance compliant. It can also work with UV and solvent-based ink systems.

Formulation
Thanks to its formulation, this silky varnish has an easy to apply, stable topcoat process. It can be applied using multiple printing techniques, including conventional flexo or gravure system.
