ASC - Sceno muslin is the modern version of the scenographic fabric par excellence.
Cotton made with plain-woven and compact weft, it is used for curtains, backdrops, cycloramas, draperies, wings, to cover frames, periaktoi, and other stage elements.
It has perfect paintability and it gives excellent results with digital printing too.
Thanks to its closed weave it is frequently used as a light diffuser, both with frontal lighting and grazing backlighting.
It's the heir of the canvases used by Sabbatini and Torelli, to which the contemporary age has added fireproofing and the availability of widths up to to 12 m.
The ATR - Sceno Poly is the similar polyester muslin with permanent flame retardancy.
And the ATT - Sceno Teatro is the analogous cotton and modacrylic muslin with permanent flame retardancy.
