ISCENT is pioneering in bringing mass produced sustainable luxury effects and textures to consumer packages and printed products.

ISCENT sells production capacity for tailored nano and micro scale surface modifications made directly on flexible plastic, paper and carton films with a unique roll-to-roll production line.

With web width up to 1,200 mm, ISCENT opens up a new range of business opportunities, enabling the implementation of the technology on large-volume product lines thanks to minimised raw material costs.
