LEONHARD KURZ Stiftung & Co. KG

Brushed structures reinterpreted

Fürth/Germany, 9 October 2013: The coating specialist Leonhard Kurz will be presenting new design concepts and decoration solutions for plastic surfaces at K 2013. Brushed designs are typically associated with engravings with linear, surface-covering structures. The new "Brushed Offbeat” design line brushes these preconceptions aside. This product range contains designs with brushed lines that are wavy or form geometric shapes. These unusual brushed finishes have been made possible by a new manufacturing technology. The brushed structures can be applied to the full surface, or alternating with plain metallic areas to produce novel patterns, thereby opening up a wide variety of design possibilities and combination options.


Besides the aforementioned fantasy designs, Kurz will also be presenting novel brushed structures with short scratches that create a strikingly realistic simulation of the visual appearance of brushed aluminum. These true metal coatings offer an authentic brushed look and are available in gold or silver.


Plastic as a quick-change artist


Kurz will also be presenting decorative finishes with tangible structures that can be applied to a smooth plastic surface to add a tactile dimension to the design. These include technical designs with symmetrical patterns that make a surface grippier, as well as wood designs that convey the natural appearance of open-pored timbers. Visitors to the Kurz booth will also be able to see the new "Woodgrain on Plastics” product range. This premium collection from Kurz aims to fulfill the most stringent design requirements and promises outstanding print quality and a stunning real wood appearance. Visit booth A19 in Hall 5 to judge these new surface designs for yourself.
