Product Details

  • Deutsche Pfand GmbH is a label commonly seen on beverage containers like bottles and cans in Germany, to indicate a product is subject to a deposit system, meaning the consumer can receive a refund for returning the empty container. The term “Pfand” translates to “deposit” in English.
  • The deposit system separates beverage containers from other waste streams, streamlining recycling processes. This efficient sorting and processing result in higher recycling rates, while also enabling the cleaning and reuse of returned containers, decreasing the demand for new container production.
  • These labels significantly contribute to waste reduction, conserving resources, reducing energy consumption, and mitigating the environmental footprint associated with container production.
  • They serve as a clear indicator for consumers that a product is subject to a deposit system. This raises awareness about recycling opportunities and encourages individuals to engage in sustainable practices.

Cold foil
Cold Foil

A technique that applies a metallic or decorative foil layer to a substrate without the need for heat. Unlike traditional hot foil stamping, cold foil relies on adhesive and UV curing technology. A layer of UV-curable adhesive is printed onto the substrate. The foil is fed into the printing press and pressed against the adhesive-coated areas. A UV light is used to instantly cure and adhere the foil to the adhesive. The unadhered foil is then removed, leaving behind the foil layer only.
