The exterior of an electronic product should be beautiful and ensure high durability. Coating and paint improve durability but cannot offer variety in texture and three-dimensional patterns. NC10’s soft cover has applied CCM (Clear Coat Molding) technology that hardens urethane inside a mold to apply a 0.3 mm urethane layer, with a smooth texture, on top of plastic, resulting in a surface with a leather feel. This concept is environmentally friendly, substantially reducing the use of coating materials and color paint that are wasted when sprayed. In addition, it introduces a design that has both visual and tactile effects.
