Lifecycle Thinking

Improving our world for future generations

Recycling and design go hand in hand

We presented our unique Lifecycle Thinking approach fittingly by using IMD Varioform® vor. Trade fair visitors experienced directly that our surface finishes do not affect the recyclability of plastics and that recycled materials can be decorated as aethetically and variedly as new materials.

  • KURZ stands up for the realisation of design-for-recycling guidelines
  • Our surface decoration embellishes your recycling material without affecthing the recyclability of various materials
  • This applies to ALL KURZE decoration procedures
  • Design-for-Recycling: IMD Varioform® film matches the polymer substrate


Design for recycling


  • Highest surface quality - smooth and even like the original material

  • Recycled materials can be decorated as aesthetically and variedly as new materials

Recyclablity of durable technical products

We presented our unique Circular Economy approach with a production process including 10% PC / ABS recyclate: We decorated live a plastic part and recycled it afterwards. Parts of the recycled materials were used for the instant decoration of a new product with sophisiticated and attractive surface.

Compositions of 10 and 25% recylate were produced and tested regarding their mechanical and optical characteristics.
