KURZ inLINE FOILING®:
Revolution for glass and tube decoration
inLINE FOILING® is the breathtaking new process for applying metallic decoration to glass and plastic containers. Developed together with ISIMAT and registered for patent approval, this process creates revolutionary possibilities for the cosmetics and beverages industries.
inLINE FOILING® conjures up brilliant metallization on bottles and tubes without pressure and temperature – inline and at high speed. These fantastic metal effects – some previously not possible – can be created in a highly efficient manner.
inLINE FOILING® – metalization made simple and smart
For the first time, eye-catching finishes easily, economically and quickly enhance products such as glass bottles, drinking glasses and tubes - entirely without pressure or heat.
Innovative inLINE FOILING® is an exclusively decoration process and has no market rivals.
It is so fast and economical because only one process operation is needed to metalize glass and plastic cylinders, while simultaneously protecting them with UV coatings.
It was previously a challenge to enhance tubular hollow parts made of glass or plastic, especially in a durable and high quality way.
Now the revolutionary inLINE FOILING® process development delivers a surprise - an inLINE FOILING® unit is simply integrated into the silkscreen process - nothing else.
An innovative process with specially developed adhesives, metallic foils, silicone stamps and coatings, unique on the market and registered for patent.

LIGHT LINE® Trends
The classic holographic rainbow color play has been reinterpreted with a twist.
KURZ New Classics combine diffractive structures in an entirely new way with holographic depth effect.
The resulting designs are surprising, and magically attract gazes.
The familiar lens look in a new context. Snakeskin structure overlays the spatial depth of optical lenses, creating a delightful link between nature and technology, and a simultaneous sensation of surface and space. Reptile lends packaging a special originality. Whether purely decorative or for specific corporate claims, the design is universal.
Space is a lens design – and yet it is not. This spherical, intangible motif seems detached from all shapes and contours. Light and color reflexes emerge in flowing motions and disappear in the depth. The enigmatic design generates boundless fascination. Space adds charm to a wide variety of stamping motifs. The classic, tranquil patterns of motion are well suited to fine details. Large, two-dimensional applications really bring out the depth effect.
The classic lens motif shows off a remarkable profile, shimmering with dew drops, radiating freshness and clarity. Light refracts in the individual drops, producing a subtle play of colors. The plasticity of the drops is striking, creating an illusion of real water drops rolling off the surface.
The White Series features sophisticated matting and lowkey holographic effects with reduced rainbow progression. The focus is on depth and motion effects in elegant white and gray hues.
Shimmering colors are intentionally left out. White-infinite designs simulate textured surfaces and give a tactile sensation.
Subtle light reflections in cool tones and versatile shades highlight the striking design. The icy texture of the surface looks real – its cold and freshness can practically be felt.
Light refraction delivers gentle and calm patterns of motion and the look and feel of a velvety smooth surface. White Velvet features a tactile look which triggers an involuntary impulse to touch the surface. The design makes packaging irresistible to touch.
White Images are expressive image designs with precise structure and clear focus. The designs are elegantly mattfinished and their color-play discreet, while at the same time boasting scintillating light effects.
Discreet color impressions leave space for the succinct design.
The memorable motifs are instantly recognizable and give strong brands a distinctive appearance.
KURZ Deep Lens and Spatial FX: breathtaking 3D effects
Flat or raised, relief or not? What you see and what you feel is pure magic. These magical optical effects originate from the workshop of our management of light experts at
Deep Lens creates a spatial depth with an optical effect that's hard to look away from. In round or angular shapes. In silver, gold, or transparent. Hot-stamped or via cold foil transfer. Only KURZ gives you the choice.
Our Spatial FX provides amazing 3D effects. Breathtaking plastic motifs seem almost tangible, because optically they virtually stand out from the surface. Real eyecatchers that will help your products get undivided attention.
Deep Lens is a crystalline design that captivates observers with extraordinary depth and spatial effect.
The Deep Lens motif allows for wide variety. It is a single image which can also generate continuous designs. The basic motif is a lens available in many shapes, whether round or square, heart- or diamond-shaped, star or sun.
More metal colors are available with overprinting, in addition to metalized lenses in gold and silver. An available transparent lens design makes further design options possible. This means the holographic depth effect can be overlaid on any colors and on image motifs such as brand logos and key visuals.
The motif seems to rise out of the surface. The three-dimensional look is so realistic that it spurs the impulse to reach out and touch it. Such design elements catch eyes on store shelves and prompt customers to engage with the product. The optical effects stand out and make brands more memorable.
In Spatial FX design the optical relief can take very different forms and incorporate elements of corporate design. The design element is meant to dramatically highlight brand logos and names.
