Tried and tested: Studies show that TRUSTCONCEPT® security labels do not affect the recyclability of paper and cardboard packagingFürth, )
Two studies with strong evidence
As part of the studies, both PTS and INGEDE tested a sample box with a paper label and a box with a PET label. In each case, the packaging as a whole was tested. PTS’ tests focused on the suitability of the material to produce high-quality recycled paper without visual contamination or adhesive residues. The tests carried out confirmed that packaging and printed products made of paper or cardboard and decorated with TRUSTCONCEPT® paper and/or plastic labels can be recycled in household recycling schemes.
In separate tests, the non-profit association INGEDE focused on the ease of removal of the adhesive used in the security labels. Here, too, the TRUSTCONCEPT® labels achieved a positive result, as Axel Fischer, Head of Public Relations at INGEDE, confirms: “The outcome of the TRUSTCONCEPT® security label test series follows the previous positive results we achieved with a number of different KURZ products.”
Consumers trust TRUSTCONCEPT®
Self-adhesive paper labels and PET labels from TRUSTCONCEPT® offer reliable protection and have both a visual and a mechanical function: On the one hand, they prove the authenticity of a product through security features, and on the other hand, they serve as a seal or first-opening protection. Consumers can thus quickly and easily recognize if they are dealing with an original product and whether it is undamaged.
