The “cuticula” product line uses real salmon skin as a surface finish for core materials. A computer-aided laminating process was specially developed for this which allows for an intersection that runs exactly along the line of the scales. This means that the pieces of salmon skin can be cut so that it is no longer possible to see any joining lines when joining the individual pieces. This produces a homogeneous image in which the natural characteristics associated with fish skin are transferred directly onto the substrate surface. A Hydro Varnish then protects the surface from external influences.
