BASF’s coatings division has invested €1 million in the construction of a new application center in Oldenburg, Germany, to strengthen its global business in industrial coatings. The new center, which includes a spraybooth for large objects, several work rooms and a training and presentation room, will be used for applications in the wind energy sector, as well as for marine and aircraft coatings and an array of applications in diverse industrial segments said the company.

“We are increasingly gearing our business in coatings for wind energy to a global market. At the new application center, we are able to simulate the various painting conditions of our customers worldwide and optimize our products accordingly,” said Dr. Achim Gast, head of post-coatings at BASF.

A wide range of climate conditions can be simulated at the center. As a result of the application tests in Oldenburg, application technologies and processes are already being ideally adapted during development in order to allow smooth and efficient use at the customer’s premises. These tests carried out in advance save money and time for both the coatings division and its customers.

“We also shorten the coordination process when there are product modifications,” said Lübbo Röttgers, coordinator of the application center. “This allows us to continuously improve our product quality.”

BASF’s paint professionals will train their customers at the new center. In the future, in Oldenburg, they will practice how to apply BASF products.
