When current flows, the layer of material emits radiation in the form of visible light.

In the past, designers would have to spec a more expensive matte film lamination or a UV matte coating, in order to achieve a similar effect. Although Soft Touch is a more expensive material than traditional aqueous coating, it does offer cost savings (and turnaround savings) versus off-line laminating […]
