Third-year graphic design students from Ultimo TAFE call into Allkotes to learn about lamination, coating and special effects.

Business development manager, Darren Delaney, gave the students the grand tour, which lasted over two hours and included a look around the plant, along with inspecting Allkote’s range of products such as the new 3D coating.

“The students were amazed,” said Delaney. “Many weren’t aware of how many different products and coatings are available, or the unique ways that some of products are used.”

According to Delaney, students responded well to tactile products such as Bubble Kote, Ultra Kote and Face Kote. “The idea of being able to put water on something and use it as facepaint was quite appealing to them,” he said.

The experience was enjoyable not only for the students, but for Delaney himself. “Whenever you can help educate the marketplace is good, not just for us but the industry because the more experienced they are the greater the opportunity is for them to pass that on to their customers and grow the market,” he said.
