Decorative effects

SILSEF nano-texturing technologies allows to sublimate the surface of many materials. These surface treatments are possible on  many different materials such as metal, leather, polymers, textiles… Our expertise permits the reproduction of small patterns (100snm) on different surfaces from small 1x1cm² to 1m² and geometries on flat or hemispherical substrate.

Optical effects

Light can be surprising. By structuring surfaces with dedicated patterns, it is possible to create various optical effects from the visible range to infrared band :

  • Diffraction, to bring an iridescent rainbow effect
  • Diffusion, to make transparent substrate more opaque
  • Reflection, which will make the materiel shinier
  • Anti-reflexion, and high transmission surfaces

Anti counterfeiting

SILSEF can mark pieces to add anti counterfeiting features: unique personalized patterns with logos, computer generated holograms…

Soft touch

Some micro or nano patterns can modify the surface feel from glassy ultra smooth to velvet like.
