The Ideal Comfort Touch Product!
Soft Touch products entered into our daily lives during the 1990's, on many small consumer products. Toothbrushes, writing pens, hand tools, etc. have all incorporated some type of Soft Touch feature.
Hogue was an innovator in this field during the mid 80's, originally manufacturing Soft Touch Sporting Goods products.
The means by which the Soft Touch or what we call "Comfort Touch" surface is achieved is through the process of "OverMolding".
One of the benefits UltraTouch toilet seats have from this OverMolding Comfort Touch process is providing a naturally durable and warmer-to-the-feel surface.
