Doming offers a branding option that reduces scuffing, lowers the impact of damage and UV factors and long lasting. In short, doming adds value to any shape or size on non-porous material by coating the surface with a thick layer of polyurethane resin. The resin is tough, durable and cannot be easily scratched or dented.
