The ingredients: cross-industry know-how in the fields of design and surface finishing combined with creativity and a keen sense for trends, plus innovative KURZ technology. The result: deceptively true hologram effects on flat or curved plastic surfaces that create a realistic, plastic depth effect. What was previously possible for paper and labels can now also be applied directly to plastic surfaces: the new TRUSTSEAL® 3D PLASTX® technology from KURZ. Make your brand unique. Captivate your customers with flat or curved plastic packaging that boasts exceptional 3D effects directly on the surface. But TRUSTSEAL® impresses not only visually. Enhance surfaces with clever and intelligent features. This way, we are surpassing previous product safety standards by far. As our portfolio of visual effects is constantly growing, copycats have no chance of breaking our codes.
Mesmerize your customers with exceptional packaging or dazzling 3D effects on plastic surfaces. With the innovative TRUSTSEAL® 3D PLASTX® technology from KURZ, you can now also create round, square, or completely customized holographic designs for 3D geometries such as lids, toothbrushes, razors, or hair dryers. The spatial effects can be applied directly to your plastic surface without additional decorative layers and as part of the injection molding process. No wonder the point of sale has become such a brilliant experience! Even matt-glossy or shadow effects can be achieved. Give your logos, trademarks, or letters three-dimensional depth on your plastic surfaces. Do your products or packaging need special protection? Then film-based optical security devices and integrated digital and electronic components right on the surface are just what you need. KURZ subsidiary OVD KINEGRAM is considered an innovator in the field of optical high-security features for cards, identity documents, and banknotes. This expert know-how is now also available for other sectors, for example the cosmetics industry or household electronics.
We draw on our expertise to make your three-dimensional surfaces especially charming and attractive. Our ability to think out of the box gave us the idea to apply 3D holographic effects to curved plastic surfaces as well. For this, we produce what is referred to as a shim, an additional embossing stamp with the holographic microstructure in the desired shape. This is inserted in your tool. The injection molding material is sprayed onto this texture and it is transferred directly to the plastic surface. Producing shims with holographic microstructures is technologically highly demanding. KURZ is one of the few manufacturers that has mastered this.
With this method, the 3D shape grows out of the surface, so to speak. Fancy gold, silver, or transparent? No problem! No matter which color you choose, with the illusion of depth, you'll achieve breathtaking visual effects for round, square, or very individual shapes. We are happy to advise you on how to best finish your product. For TRUSTSEAL® SFX you can use either the hot or cold stamping process, depending on the surface or substrate:
TRUSTSEAL® SFX on Label: on labels or tags
TRUSTSEAL® SFX on Paper: on paper, cardboard, and packaging
TRUSTSEAL® 3D PLASTX®: directly on plastic, for example on caps or cosmetic lids
The result: mesmerizing 3D effects
Where finishing becomes a creative masterpiece. Make your plastic surfaces a sought-after designer piece without the use of additional decorative components. Beautiful and unique. Benefit from the diverse effects that are available to you.
