Hi! We're The skins® by DSM
DSM Skins® give your branding ideas character. We’re the bases of a family of powerful overprint varnishes that add funky tactile effects to all kinds of packaging. These special coatings unleash a world of creative opportunities for food and non-food packaging whether on coated or uncoated papers, boards, plastics and even aluminum. Giving a Wow Factor that other packaging just can’t touch!
Skins® are DSM’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.
Now, how could they help you?
WHY THE SKINS® BY DSM?
Our Skins® just love to take packaging designs to another level. By adding contrasting textures and fresh color options, they create packaging innovations that make customers engage with products in a new way. They even give extra protection during processing and against moisture. But don’t worry, these little rascals won’t slow your production down. You’ll still run 10,000 pieces an hour on the packaging line!
