Continental is known for high-quality furniture foils that are consistently in line with the latest interior design trends and impress with their unique functional properties. This product quality is achieved as a result of excellent teamwork – from the initial idea all the way through to production-ready processing by means of application engineering.

Authentic wood grains, elegant matt looks, special structures – with the skai® product brand, Continental offers a premium furniture foils portfolio that is always state-of-the-art. The technology company’s secret? The outstanding quality of the final product is ensured along the entire value chain by a multitude of experts. Only when everyone – in sales, development, design, process engineering, production, quality management and application engineering – works hand in hand with the customer and communicates with each other as equals can the skai brand be filled with life from the shared passion for surface materials.

As early as the foil development stage, the quality of the final product is ensured by comprehensive expertise in raw materials, formulations, colour scheme, surface finishes and protective films.

The focus is always on the product and customer satisfaction – regardless of whether it is the specific composition and special requirements of the foils or their integration into the customer’s processing or handling process. Here, application engineering takes on an important service function since it is in direct contact with the customer and takes care of concrete solutions directly on site at the machine – and does so worldwide. In addition, the application experts are responsible for providing individual processing instructions as well as process parameters.

This all-in-one package is rounded off by the option to carry out intensive tests for the individual applications in the furniture industry (1D, 2D, 3D) as well as the wide-ranging practical experience. The key to success? Continental pools together outstanding know-how across all areas and focuses on close networking and partnership with the customer.
