Holographic board and aluminum foil are the same product
100% Sustainable & Recyclable
According to the UN World Commission on Environment and Development, sustainability development is defined as “…development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” K Laser Technology wants to do more than follow a trend; we want to set the standard. Leaving a promising present for future generations is an ideal engrained in our company-wide global culture.
The Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) Sustainability Committee has confirmed the thickness of aluminum on metallic transfer foil (including cold foil), measuring at 30-60 nanometers. For comparison, a human hair is 80,000-100,000 nanometers thick. With the miniscule amount of aluminum used, paper and paperboard containing cold foil is 100% recyclable and repulpable, confirmed by testing through Western Michigan University.
Partner with K Laser Technology CFBU (Cold Foil Business Unit) to explore and expand your world of cold foil embellishments with peace of mind for the future.
