about Stamping Foils

Stamping foils represent no hazardous materials due to the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances (11/2010). According to REACH they have to be classified as articles (1907/2006/EG) and therefore are no subject to registration. KURZ does not use any raw materials containing chlorinated hydrocarbons, cadmium, lead, mercury or hexavalent chromium for the stamping foil production.

The vast majority of our stamping foils fulfill the requirements of the various national and international regulations, taking into consideration their formulations, the specifications provided by raw material suppliers and their usage in their respective specialized applications.

Conflict minerals

In regards to requirements stipulated in the Dodd-Frank Act (Section 1502 - "Conflict Minerals"), KURZ continues to work with our suppliers to trace raw material content determining whether minerals from mines or uncertified melting plants located in conflict regions are utilized.

No conflict minerals originating in the Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries are used for the production of KURZ foils intentionally. KURZ requests our suppliers to supply written confirmation of steps taken to prove the origin of material contents classified as conflict minerals.
