Environmental and food safe Iridescent Printing Technology takes its first global steps for consumer packaging and for brand protection

Known from its convenience in mass production and its ecological iridescent printing press technology, Iscent Oy has started cooperation with Cellogram Oy which produces and sells ecological wrapped by hand cellophane products. Due to this cooperation this in the light rainbow colours gleaming pattern cellophane will be available for consumers in the markets shelves in autumn 2016.

Early 2016 Iscent also made their first technology license agreement with KCF (Korea Computer Form) in East Asia. The aim is to build a cost effective security feature in packages and printing media.

Iscent produces and sells iridescent films to protect brands and to increase the attraction of packages. Typical applications are for example chocolate, coffee, alcohol, sweets and cosmetics. The brand and design companies exploit Iscents iridescent technology especially as brand products wrapping material and as laminated in flexible packages or overlaminated structures. Iridescent effect surprises the consumer especially in spot light and in sun light to make the package elegant and to protect the product. Authenticity is secured by printing microcodes in the packages that can only be read with a magnifying device.

The holographic film material based on refraction is a cost-effective solution because the production method can be integrated directly to the printing press lines they are using. The environmental friendliness is based on the fact that the hologram is produced without additives by changing the printed surfaces similar nanoscales "valleys and hills".
-In the future, new product innovations are in pipeline also in technical advanced structures and functional printing - the contract with KCF in Korea gives dynamics for new product launches, says Jaakko Raukola, the CEO of Iscent.
