Traditionally, PET carriers have stopped being important once the transfer decoration has been applied to the substrate. Because KURZ surface finishes do not transfer any carrier film to your product. On the contrary, the transfer material is removed, collected, and stored separately as industrial waste. On its last journey, PET was mostly used as a substitute fuel instead of gas, coal, or oil in various industries such as the cement industry.
But as an eco-conscious trendsetter, we asked ourselves: Is that really the best we can do? Do we really want to waste such a valuable raw material? Of course not! As a pioneer in the graphics and plastics industry, we have done what we do best: We have pooled all our expertise and developed a completely new recycling system for PET carriers, KURZ RECOSYS®.
Our KURZ RECOSYS® return and recycling system offers manufacturers enormous potential: With its environmentally friendly properties, our system opens up a sustainable path to a bright future in increasingly sensitive markets.
