Decorative Films

Mazzucchelli 1849 manufactures and commercialize two families of decorative films: Mdecor and Sicobloc, both made with our block technology: with them, we exploit our centennial experience in the world of the cellulose acetate to create three-dimensional patterns in only 200 micron of flexible films. Decorative films can be used whenever there is a need to decorate an object or a surface with the precious aesthetics of block technology.

Sicobloc, made with flexible PVC, has been produced by Mazzucchelli for more than 20 years. Sicobloc is thin, flexible and present all of the advantages of PVC films, as described in the following sections, combined with the unique beauty obtained through block process.

The newborn in this class is Mdecor: presented for the first time in 2015, this new product is a step beyond. Several decades of experience in block technology have been combined with a first class polymer – TPU – to enable our customers to develop even more solutions.

The block process

Our production process (block technology) is based on mass coloring of plastics – either PVC or TPU - with oriented pigments, allowing special and unique three dimensional effects. Thanks to this process and our know how, we can reinvent patterns inspired by natural materials and produce unique effects, according the most recent trends of fashion and design.

The first step of block process is the production of colored sheets, obtained by extrusion – TPU - or calendering, for PVC. Colored sheets are then cut and worked to obtain an incredible variety of colored components: stripes, cubes, flakes, grains. Once put into a mold, these components and pressed together to form a block, which is then cut into sheets of the desired thickness: our product is ready to be shipped to our customers! For that reason, our decorative films are sold in sheets of 60x140 cm. Standard thickness is 0.2 mm; upon request, Mdecor can be cut with higher thicknesses. The beauty of every block comes also its uniqueness: we control colors, quantity of components and the way our workers prepare the blocks, but small and random variations on the way those components join together make every block and every sheet unique: like in a natural material, every piece is unique, like a handcrafted work made at industrial scale.

Mdecor (TPU)

What is

Mdecor is a decorative film made in TPU that can be used in many areas and for various applications, whenever there is a need of superior performances. More into details Mdecor is made of sheets of high quality aliphatic thermoplastic polyurethane, with an exceptional resistance to hydrolysis, excellent flexibility at low temperatures and good resistance to microorganisms. TPU world is populated by various grades; among them, we selected the most resistant and safe grade of aliphatic TPU, to provide our customers with a product able to withstand the attacks of heat and light.

Patterns created ad hoc

The endless series of colors and patterns we can produce allows us to create a virtually infinite number of products. In Mazzucchelli 1849, our product development team and our laboratory work everyday with designers and fashion stylists from all over the world to transform their ideas into reality. Our designers together with our technicians can create a new pattern of Mdecor, being inspired by a piece of fabric, a fragment of wood, a natural stone, a sample of a man-made material, a graphic pattern. Our strength is our centennial experience on the creation of new patterns with cellulose acetate. Our commercial team is ready to support our customers to define prices, MOQ and lead time for the development of new patterns.

Sicobloc (PVC)

What is

Sicobloc is a decorative film made in PVC, that can be used in many areas and for various applications, whenever a harmonic balance between aesthetics provided by block technology and PVC properties and cost in needed. More into details Sicobloc is made of flexible sheets of DOP-free, plasticized PVC. Our PVC offers in 0.2 mm all the beauty and the depth of block technology and is the best if you need a price-effective, flexible film, suitable for lamination and various transformation processes.
