BASF has introduced the new Polyceram Plus topcoats and the chromate-free Coiltec universal primer. BASF Coatings specifically developed the Polyceram Plus topcoat portfolio for the European coil coatings market. The flexibility and weathering resistance of the coating are also an important positioning element for the various product lines comprising the new topcoat system. This entire spectrum of weathering resistance properties as outlined in European standard DIN EN 10169, can be covered with the new products. The new topcoat family consists of only eight product lines. They replace the over 20 different product lines previously on offer. BASF Coatings also launched the newest generation of Coiltec universal primers, which can be used on various substrates and with nearly all topcoats.
