Germany-based hot stamping and coating technology specialist The Kurz Group has developed an environmentally friendly finishing process for sealing caps made from plastic.

The company claims that the process, called CAP-tivate Luxury, enables a wide variety of surface designs to be transferred in a dry, emission-free and energy-saving way. This capability also extends to metallic and chrome designs, which can be achieved without electroplating.

The coating’s composition can be tailored to the environmental requirements of the customer. A wide range of nature-inspired designs can be used to decorate the lid. The designs can be combined with partial soft-touch surfaces and different effects can be used for the top of the lid and its sides.
