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.”

Skins® Sandy adds a new dimension to all kinds of paper, board and flexible packaging applications with a gritty feel that makes people really engage with products. Featuring broad food contact compliancy and strong visual appeal, Skins® Sandy is also very hardwearing thanks to excellent rub and water resistance. And, as a waterborne system, her eco-credentials are outstanding.

Available in a range of grades, from fine to coarse, she gives the perfect tactile finish to food and non-food products alike. She’s also very lightweight compared to other laminates which saves material usage and reduces transport costs – and even eco-taxes. So look forward to her also making a positive difference to your bottom line.

Sandy is very easy to work with. No paddling necessary! Formulation takes minimal effort and doesn’t require you to handle any additives. She works on flexo and gravure presses (think of her as a special kind of overprint varnish) and equipment is easy to clean once you’re finished.

In terms of aesthetics, performance and flexibility, Skins® Sandy could make all the difference for your next packaging project. 

GO WITH THE GRAIN

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!”
