SOFT TOUCH

When Feel Makes the Difference


Soft Touch - or Haptic - Coatings offer many different benefits. Not only do they apply a visually appealing "soft" low gloss appearance, but they also delight by providing a haptic sensation unique to most coating products. This allows for the print finisher to maximize the sensory impact of the printed image/message by introducing a third dimension to the traditional 2D impact of printing. UVS soft touch coatings are meant to convey a feeling of quality, luxury, and emotional warmth through tactile experience: Think mink coats, exotic leather, beautifully soft skin, feathers, etc.

UVS Soft Touch coatings are 100% UV, with no water present in their formulations. This advanced technology provides numerous benefits including smoother, faster processing (no emulsified build-up like with "hybrid" soft touch coatings), easier clean-up times (no pre-drying on the equipment like water-based coatings), and superior environmental resistance to water, chemicals, etc.
