Higher-performance means taking the stress
When it comes to higher-performance in harsh use, it's all about the ability to withstand whatever gets thrown your way.
That's why the array of products and systems that depend on plastics and polyurethanes is almost endless. Even the manufacturing equipment itself relies on high-performance materials.
Think about it. There's almost nothing you can't make using plastics and polyurethanes, at least for some components of the finished product. And when it comes to manufacturing, we have to think about the productivity benefit brought by improved processing, design freedom and proven high performance — no matter what the end product might be.
Materials used in industrial applications are typically exposed to extreme stresses, demanding high mechanical strength and abrasion resistance. Other requirements are good electrical insulation properties, heat resistance, high stiffness, compressive strength and good sliding-friction performance.
BASF engineering plastics make gears and bearings, conveyors, filters, stock shapes, and electrical applications better. And our polyurethanes portfolio boasts a range of cast elastomers that are well suited for industrial applications, due to their toughness, elasticity and abrasion resistance.
