Neoprene Rubber Skin Finishes
While Macro has been working to develop the quality and function of our neoprene material, we have introduced several different looks and textures for the neoprene raw skin finishes. If your neoprene need consists of a rubbery finish on one side for aesthetic or functional purposes, please take a look at our patterns available below. The below neoprene raw skin textures are made with a unique embossing technique on our cell skin or smooth skin neoprene.
Depending on your uses and needs, we have several types of skin finishes to meet your needs. The raw cell rubber finish is the most basic skin finish we offer. The smooth skin neoprene rubber finish is our next step up in neoprene skin finishes that gives a completely smooth, non-porous matte finish to the neoprene skin. The next step up is our Glide Skin or Silk Skin, which is a unique skin finish specially treated to hold metallic sheen matte and sparkly finishes. Finally, we have our TATEX or Tough Skin neoprene finish which has extremely high density characteristics and provides better strength and resistance than the traditional raw cell, smooth, and silk skin finishes.
With our expansive selection in neoprene rubber skin finishes, if designed properly, can make your neoprene products even more appealing and interesting.
