They’re a fun bunch and love to add character to packaging with special coatings. They open up a whole new world of creative opportunities and tactile sensations for packaging design. And for much higher volumes than was previously possible.
They may be fun, but there’s lots of serious science behind them. It’s all down to a thing called haptic perception, that’s the feeling between human skin and surfaces. Skins® play around with things like stiffness and surface properties to create lots of exciting new tactile opportunities.
These innovative print finishing products are brought to you by DSM, with years of experience in haptic coatings. We can work with you to provide a total solution to your coating needs, one that feels just right.
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.
“I’ve got a good feeling about this!”
Silky is soft, delicate and sensitive. She’s the one that adds that luxurious feel to things like skincare, perfume and make-up packaging.
“Smoothly does it, every time.”
