Micro Edge™ — Novel, Patented Microfacet Optical Technology
Micro Edge™ technology features small, light-efficient micro-facets that reflect pixels made of light both above and below the focal place, which can create 3D animation and other unique visual effects. The floating pixels create an optical image identity that can’t be copied by printed 2D decorative packaging.
Since Micro Edge™ facets are molded directly into the container, no extra materials are needed to create the effect, making the technology sustainable and eco-friendly. The process does not add cost to the manufacturing process and is, therefore, extremely economical.

Micro Edge Technology
01. NanoPixel Light/Dark Flip: Text shifts between light + dark and activates when tilting up/down
02.Hexagonal Expansion: Array of hexagons which expand + contract Activates in all axes
03.NanoPixel.com On/Off: "NANOPIXEL.COM" text becomes invisible/visible at certain angles
04.Lens Array: Region features traveling highlights which move across the surface, simulating a dome-effect
05.Wireform Shape Flip: Visible shape transitions between 3D cube + 3D pyramid Activates when tilting up/down
06.Faceted Cube: Light activates corresponding faces. Top face when lit from above, right face when lit from right, left face when lit from left
07.Pixel Grid: A square highlight traveling in a grid-array fashion and activates in both axes
08.Linear Light-Band: Regions of highlights traveling in alternating directions and activates when tilting left/right
09.ALBA Light/Dark Flip: Text shift between light/dark Activates when tilting left/right
10.Floating Wings: Wing graphic features deep-float effect below the surface and activates in all axes, becomes extremely sharp when hit with a direct light source
11.NP Light/Dark Flip: Text shifts between light/dark Shallow float present on text-frame and activates when tilting up/down
NanoPixel technology integrates simply and seamlessly into production. As unique as the visual effects are, it’s still a packaging film application that utilizes existing equipment as easily as conventional films. It uses the same materials, molding processes, and the same mold-mark insertion processes as standard solutions.
