The wide range of additives produced by BASF includes performance and formulation additives for a huge number of demanding adhesive and sealant applications. Performance additives such as photoinitiators and light stabilizers protect the finished products from oxygen-related and mechanical wear and tear. Formulation additives, on the other hand, are used to adjust the qualities of the adhesive formulation e.g. its rheology and foaming properties as well as its adhesive strength on various substrates. Manufacturers of adhesives and sealants can choose those additives from our comprehensive range that best meet their specific requirements. We are constantly broadening our portfolio by developing new technologies for innovative curing processes, more sustainable products and high-performance additives. This way, we help our customers to improve the efficiency, durability and appearance of their products. As a leading supplier of additives, we have, through the acquisition of Cognis, enhanced our formulation additives portfolio with products that are based on renewable raw materials.
BASF will supply raw materials as well as other aids for the production of flexible packaging.
BASF is one of the leading manufacturer of polyamide, which finds its application in a vast variety of barrier films due to its high barrier properties and favorable mechanical properties. Ultramid® is a versatile engineering plastic, which can be used for flexible packaging applications like e.g. sausage skins and stand-up pouches because of its gas and aroma barrier properties.
Higly stretchable and puncture resistant films, made of the thermoplastic polyurethan Elastollan®, are a very elegant solution for the packaging industry. The stretched elastollan film is able to absorb vibrations and shocks and keep packaged goods securely in place.
The compostable plastic ecoflex® is suitable for compostable packaging according to DIN EN 13432. The compostable plastic ecovio® comprises of the renewable raw material polylactic acid and ecoflex®. Primary applications are flexible films for the manufacturing of e.g. shopping bags or mulch films for farming.
Rigid plastic packaging includes cups, bottles, pots and cans extrusion blow molding and also closures.
As a result of our many years of experience, our extensive technical know how and our broad understanding of sectors, we offer the appropriate raw and packaging materials for the various areas of application.
BASF offers the packaging industry a wide range of packaging materials and solutions. Everything you want to protect and display in a favourable way, from beverages or food to cosmetics and pharmaceutical products - BASF has the solution for each packaging need. If not, we develop it together with you.
