iSkin helps keep the Air clean with its silicone protector with industry-exclusive Microban® protection

TORONTO, Canada—January 27, 2011—iSkin, the original maker of the silicone keyboard protector for Apple® computer keyboards, today announced its ProTouch Classic Keyboard Protector for 2010’s 11” MacBook Air.  It’s designed to overlay the keyboard and block small particles of food, dust and other impurities from entering and causing damage. ProTouch forms a thin, yet durable, layer that protects without overheating or hampering use of the keyboard. It also dampens the sound caused by typing and helps to prevent key wear from heavy use.

The ProTouch keyboard protector is the only product of its kind to feature Microban anti-microbial product protection which works to inhibit the growth of odor‒causing bacteria and fungus on the product. This feature makes it the preferred choice for public, home and educational environments. The ProTouch can also be removed and washed with warm water and detergent to promote a cleaner and safer typing environment for MacBook Air owners.

The ProTouch Classic for 11” MacBook Air will initially be offered in Arctic (Clear Frosted). This is a clear, colorless version that is specially coated to provide a smooth, satin-like finish. Finally, its specially formulated non-toxic silicone has been optimized to provide a comfortable feel during typing.

ProTouch Classic for 11” MacBook Air retails for $24.99 USD and is available immediately at iSkin.com and will roll out soon at US/Canada Apple Retail Stores. Availability in global retail partners starts March 2011. ProTouch keyboard protectors are currently available for all other MacBook and Apple keyboard models, and are available at select iSkin resellers and iSkin.com. Prices range from $24.99 to $34.99 USD, depending on the model.
