OSKIN™ Light

DESCRIPTION

OSKIN™ Light comprises a smooth and thin TPO foil on a 1 mm polyolefin foam, for in-situ In Mold Graining foaming processes.

This product is an alternative to compact 1.2 to 1.4 mm foils. It is lightweight, offers improved orthogonal touch, and allows self-tearing for airbags applications.

Possibility to add primer backing for process needs
