Scenography: How Isothane can help

Set & Prop Design

The term scenography includes all of the elements that contribute to establishing an atmosphere and mood for a theatrical presentation. In many films and television programmes polyurethane products are used to recreate scenery, costumes including armour and props which are so realistic that there is no doubt in the viewers mind that the armour the actors are wearing is made of metal and that the stone columns in the background are actually made of stone.


At Isothane we provide a comprehensive range of polyurea systems which can be used by scenographers to produce stunning and realistic props, sets and costumes for films, television programmes plus other events and attractions such as Legoland theme park.

Our polyurea systems range from flexible to rigid and from fire retardant grades to chemical resistant. We formulate our products to give the optimal properties in both cure speed, flow characteristics and polymer structure. These characteristics mean that our finished products are easier to work with than our competitors and we are constantly told by our customers that our systems are technically superior, due to its processability, surface finish or workability once cured.


Some examples of our products in action include the Rugby World Cup in 2015 a giant causeway was created as can be seen in the photographs in the following article:

The list of films our products have appeared in stretches back over 15 years to films such as Gladiator in 2000 and Die Another Day in 2002.  More recently they have been used as costume armour and props in the Avengers: Age of Ultron and Guardians of the Galaxy, for props in Star Wars: The Force Awakens plus some of the sets in the 2016 film The Jungle Book and will be appearing on the big screen again later this year in some more big releases.

Television programmes such as Dr Who, Band of Brothers and Game of Thrones have featured our products again for costume armour and props purposes.

We pride ourselves on building strong work relationships with our customers and are able to modify a system to better suit their needs, another competitive advantage to buying from Isothane. Our experienced technical sales team is able to advise directly the most suitable product for the customer and this can help to simplify the process at fact-finding stage when customers are looking for a product for a particular application.
