BASF Receives 2007 European Coatings Award

By Kerry Pianoforte

Published May 8, 2007
BASF AG has received the European Coatings Award 2007 for the new AQAGloss binder for high-gloss water-based coatings. The prize is presented every two years on the eve of the European Coatings Show (ECS), Europe’s leading trade fair for paints and coatings, and goes to the best scientific presentation of new product technologies. BASF’s presentation of AQAGloss at the ECS show cases an innovation in the field of water-based coatings. “AQAGloss is a brand-new dispersion-based binder for the manufacture of high gloss water-based coatings and thus a genuine alternative to conventional solvent-based architectural coatings," said Jan-Peter Sander, head of BASF’s Adhesive and Construction Polymers regional business unit and thus responsible for the architectural coatings business in Europe. The product’s advantage? Paints based on AQAGloss can already meet the environmental standards of the future (EU Directive 2004/42/EC and emissions tests based on the guidelines of Germany’s Committee for Health-Related Evaluation of Building Products - AgBB), since thanks to their environmentally friendly properties they contain only small amounts of film-forming auxiliaries. In addition, they contain no heavy metals (driers).
