Sustainability

Sustainability expertise
& recycling security
with KURZ

See for yourself how sustainability can become your competitive advantage with KURZ! We strive for a circular economy in the sense of life cycle thinking. That’s why we follow the design-for-recycling approach as early as the development phase of our decorations. They do not restrict the recyclability of components. Our designs can also be used to enhance recycled materials in a high-quality and individual way.

We also use self-generated renewable energy and green electricity in our production. In addition, we have developed a special recycling system called KURZ RECOSYS®: We are the only company in the industry to take back PET transfer carriers from our transfer decoration and process them into high-quality plastic granulate: KURZ RECOPOUND®.

RECOPOUND®

Elegant watering cans are made from recycled plastic granulate and finished on a BAIER machine with a hot-stamping decoration . RECOPOUND® is suitable for robust plastic components in a wide range of industries and can be used in any conventional injection molding machine. The recycled material can be decorated to the same high-quality as new material.

Components with
recycled content

You will not notice any visual difference between your component being made from new plastic material or with recycled content. KURZ decorations enhance both materials in a high-quality and functional manner. If you want the use of recyclates to be visible in the decoration, you can opt for our special sustainability designs.

Would you like decorations according to your design specifications? Let’s talk! We implement your specifications in a perfect quality. Sensor functionality can also be achieved with recyclates, as can additional hygiene protection with KURZ BIOFENSE®. See for yourself at the KURZ stand how high quality components with recycled content are decorated. Request your samples free of charge.

KURZ metallization with indium

Spectacular chrome
designs

Decorating with indium is THE EU-compliant and excellent alternative to real chrome plating. See what stunning effects you can achieve without having to resort to harmful chromium 6. Deceptively real depth and movement effects, brilliant colors, brushed, matte, or a high-gloss metal look – anything is possible. Decoration takes place via the IMD series process and, in addition to various plastics (ABS, PC/ABS, ASA, and PP), it is also suitable for recyclates. What’s more, indium-based metallization is highly resistant to weather and environmental influences. It meets the high standards of the automotive industry for exterior use, and also supports 5G applications and the use of antennas.
