DSM Skins® are a family of powerful overprint varnishes that can add all kinds of great finishes and tactile effects to many different types of packaging, food and non-food. Coated or uncoated papers, boards, plastics and even aluminium can all get to feel the power of Skins®.
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!
Skins® Sandy has many sides for you to discover, from super fine to positively gritty. Not only gorgeous, she’s also light as a feather, economical and very eco. Packaging, bottle wrappers, biscuit boxes and even spaghetti packages love her.
Rubbert is our tough guy. Bouncy and always ready for some rough and tumble, he loves wrapping himself around high-tech stuff and gadgets. He can give your headphones or laptop a super stylish matte look with a cool rubbery feel.
