Iridescent OPET

ISCENT’s first products include holographic-like, light scattering effect films on OPET. Conventional holographic technologies are based on metal foiling or coatings, laminated structures and UV curable varnishes. With ISCENT’s innovative material surface modification technology, none of these elements are required (or for that matter any additional materials): the rainbow colours are generated simply by altering the topography of the plastic or paper surface. Application examples from wide range of OPET laminates in flexible packages (coffee, candies, chips, pet food, etc..). Overlaminated structures for promotion, marketing and advertising materials.

Iridescent OPP (pearlized)
Eye-catching differentiation: One feature of ISCENT’s technology is the ability to label branded products with a solution that is difficult to counterfeit. Printers can reduce the use of inks, and advertising agencies can create environmentally friendly and visually striking packages or marketing/advertising products. Application examples from wrap around labels on PET bottles, and others, where base material is pearlized OPP.

Product and gift wrapping materials
Additional applications include transparent films for gift and flower bouquet wrappings, which can be made more decorative without compromising transparency.

Wrapping materials for cosmetics, chocolate boxes, cigarrettes etc…

Polymer of dispersion coated paper and paper board
Polymer and dispersion coated paper and paper board are ideal in our process. Value adding in traditional paper and paper board applications. Brand your own product.

In Mould Labelling
The products are also suitable for injection moulded plastic products such as mobile phone shells, for thermoformed 3-D products such as lids, trays, blister packs, and for laminate solutions such as interior design elements and sports equipment.

As nothing is added to film or materials, ISCENT technology is a cost effective, sustainable alternative to conventional holograms. In addition, the technology enables other novel products with micro scale textures on flexible materials.

ISCENT both supplies luxury effect materials to printing houses, converters and brand owners, also licenses its technology to film and packaging industry.

ISCENT is a privately owned Start-Up company in Finland with a technology competence provided by Finnish Paper Machinery manufacturing.

History
ISCENT was founded in 2011 with the objective of commercializing a new, high-quality optical light scattering effect material produced by surface modification in nanoscale. ISCENT has it’s roots of several years in profound research in printed intelligence, academia, and business experience in the field of nanoimprinting, printing and printing inks, and consumer packed goods sector.
