“Doming” is a technique that consists of covering the surface of an impression with a type of resin. Usually it’s a type of polyurethane that’s used as resin. It has a transparent appearance and its touch feels like flexible plastic or rubber. It’s applied with a machine automatically. It’s added drop by drop to give more or less thickness to the final product.

It’s added drop by drop to give more or less thickness to the final product.

It can be used for stickers, both paper and vinyl, magnets, labels or key chains, whether they are promotional gifts or for internal use.

The “doming” can be done with the adhesive shape you want. The only requirement is that the form is slightly rounded, that is to say without any pointy corner. It can not be used for printed works or key chains that are perforated because the product can overflow into the perforated hole. The minimum size of the print or key chain is 1 cm in general. We must know that the larger the area where it’s added, the less pleasant its texture. The resin will spread throughout the surface and won’t be very thick.
