Silky feel and abrasion resistance developed by DSM
A new resin provides soft touch and abrasion resistance for packaging while decreasing the need for additives to create haptic properties. This new silky-feel resin has been developed by Royal DSM, Netherlands global-science company, and added to their Skins Silky family which consists of products that create silky feel for packaging.
AgiSyn 248 allows for wider range of end-user applications
AgiSyn 248 is the newest addition to the company´s Skins Silky soft resin range which allows for chemical and abrasion resistant packaging made of different materials. The new product brings exceptional soft touch and abrasion resistance for packaging and allows for an even wider range of end-user applications.
According to DSM, when combined with a matting agent and cured by UV light, the low viscosity water based resin, AgiSyn 348, results in a silky feel on screen overprint and flexographic varnishes which is generated within the resin´s own structure rather than created by additives. This resin could also be used in the adhesive film market.
