KATZ produces 3 billion coasters a year. A popular choice across five continents, KATZ coasters are also the market leader in most parts of the world. With origins dating back to 1903, the KATZ coaster stems from a small area of Germany known as the Black Forest.

Yet this particular beer mat is as far from 'small-town provincial' as you can get! Its functional role is impressive enough – a drinks mat capable of absorbing up to 300 percent of its net weight in liquid – but it also has plenty of other talents. As an advertising medium, the coaster is one of the industry's leading lights – and in many respects it leaves most of the alternatives in its wake. For example, a coaster study carried out in 2012 revealed that 96 percent of the people surveyed consider coasters to be an unobtrusive form of advertising. 66 percent read what is printed on them. And 62 percent would pocket coasters that they find useful, fun, sexy or appealing in some other way. Another major point in its favour is the number of people it reaches and, above all, its cost per mille (CPM): 100 coasters are typically viewed by 6,000 people over the course of just one month.

A product invented more than 100 years ago could be considered outdated – but nothing could be further from the truth for the multifaceted coaster. However long it has been fulfilling its traditional role in the restaurant industry, it is still a relative newcomer in terms of its marketing role.

What was once a useful addition to bar and restaurant tables has been transformed into a versatile and adaptable ambassador of the modern world of advertising. By equipping the coaster with QR codes or augmented reality elements such as interactive games, 3D models, sounds, links and graphics, it is possible to create exciting links between online and offline worlds while communicating an advertising message.

By linking to relevant online content, coasters can stimulate people's desire to interact with the brand message. Coasters are omnipresent in the pub and restaurant trade, a fact that offers fantastic benefits for advertisers: They enjoy a very high rate of acceptance, have a very reasonable cost per thousand, and are generally considered to be appealing and popular.

The KATZ Group – Made in Germany


But we do that one thing outstandingly well! We offer premium quality, maximum sustainability and all the added value that people expect from German-made products.
Wood pulp is a versatile material, and everything ultimately comes down to how you use it. It has been the material of choice for beer mats for the last 100 years.

Yet our wood pulp-based material has so much more to offer! Simply modify the production process and the same material can be used to create KATZ FOOD SAFETY BOARD for the food industry, KATZ AIRFRESHENER BOARD for air fresheners, bookbinding materials, and pressure equalisation materials. Our product development team has also come up with genuine alternatives to the raw materials used in the POS and impact sound markets in the form of our KATZ DISPLAY BOARD and GREEN LIGNIN products.


Follow your nose to find outstanding quality! KATZ AIRFRESHENER BOARD is a specially developed,highly absorbent wood pulp board with a double-sided white top layer. It is primarily used to produce air fresheners, since it not only absorbs and stores fragrances extremely well, but also releases them again gradually over time. KATZ AIRFRESHENER BOARD also has excellent whiteness properties (D65 90%), guaranteeing top-quality printing results and a truly professional look.

Our standard KATZ AIRFRESHENER BOARD is 1.5mm thick. The minimum order quantity is 50 tons, though smaller quantities starting from 5 tons will also be considered if ordered in combination with other customer orders. KATZ AIRFRESHENER BOARD is fully compatible with offset, digital and letterpress printing technology.


ISEGA compliance makes KATZ FOOD SAFETY BOARD a great choice for both direct and indirect contact with foodstuffs. Thanks to its specially designed top layer and the use of natural raw materials, KATZ FOOD SAFETY BOARD is guaranteed to be food safe, making it the perfect packaging solution for cakes, biscuits, baked goods and other foodstuffs.
Do you need to add a functional barrier layer? No problem! KATZ FOOD SAFETY BOARD can easily be laminated with a food-grade film.
