Innovative capacity


KURZ is and has always been the forerunner in the security foil industry.

Based on the KINEGRAM technology platform, and in close collaboration with our subsidiary company OVD Kinegram AG, we developed groundbreaking security features. Issuing authorities around the world have managed to stay far ahead of counterfeiting threats with our solutions.

KURZ is the innovation leader for many important developments in foil security.

Continuous KINEGRAM stripes, as for example on the first issue of the Euro in 2001, have been replaced by registered KINEGRAM foil stripes. KURZ was the first company to offer this on the market. The incorporation of windows in banknote paper was responded to with KINEGRAM REVIEW - proposing a foil feature that operates as a transmission as well as a reflection feature. A further milestone development was the unique and award-winning KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO technology for high precision partial metallization. Our one-of-a-kind development KINEGRAM VOLUME was named "Best Applied Security Feature" in 2015.

The portfolio of effects within the KINEGRAM technology is constantly expanding. The versatility and design opportunities of KINEGRAM security foils are unreached by any other security feature.


“KURZ put in substantial effort in research and development and got the product out within tight time lines. They worked with us very well.”
