BASF’s R-M automotive coatings used on winning truck at the International Auto Show

December 6, 2012

IVECO showed off its Dakar rally-winning truck at the 64th International Auto Show (IAA) Commercial Vehicles in Hanover, Germany. The truck was painted with Graphite HD, a paint line produced by BASF’s premium R-M brand specifically for commercial vehicles.

The IAA Commercial Vehicles is a leading trade show for mobility, transportation and logistics and is therefore a key platform for R-M. The brand provides a full range of paint systems for manufacturers of commercial and transportation vehicles.

R-M announced an extension to its involvement as a technical sponsor of the Petronas de Rooy IVECO team. The team achieved a double victory in the 2012 Dakar rally.
“The Dakar rally is an outstanding opportunity to showcase the advantages of our commercial vehicle technologies. We have found a very strong and professional partner in IVECO,” said Oliver Birk, head of commercial transport solutions business development, BASF.
