Visitors to the BASF booth (#1431) will see a wide range of sustainable coatings solutions for the architectural, construction, transportation, industrial, furniture and flooring markets in the areas of latex polymers, binders, resins, pigments, colorants, minerals and formulation and performance additives.
“ACS allows BASF to showcase its versatile portfolio of products and solutions and inspire new ideas to help address industry challenges,” said Gerry Podesta, senior vice president, BASF Dispersions & Pigments, North America. “This event allows us to share our industry resources and breadth and depth of our product offerings with customers across market sectors.”
With an emphasis on formulation expertise, BASF is hosting“Formulate on the Floor” sessions to raise concern of anyproduct or industry challenges and consult with a member of the Formulations Services Institute (FSI). The FSI is a cross-functional team dedicated to addressing common industry challenges to provide a holistic approach to customer service in tandem
with the technical services teams.
During the show, BASF launched three new globally available pigments, Lumina Royal Dragon Gold EH 0908 and Cinquasia Uniflow Magenta EH 4504 and EH 4555, that enhances styling options across a variety of product markets.
