High performance meets high art


Your product needs to stand out on the shelf, while also being protected from harm, straight from the production line through warehousing, transportation and to the end user. And once that packaging protection is no longer needed, what then? Is it recyclable? Reusable? Compostable?


Our broad selection of plastics and polyurethanes offers outstanding properties to enhance the quality and value in the printing and packaging industries.


Take our groundbreaking bio-plastics, ecovio and ecoflex. Plastic bags, packaging and food service items that biodegrade in compost makes the handling of organic waste more hygienic and convenient. And helps make composting clean, safe and efficient. Easier, more sanitary food and yard waste recycling increases diversion rates, saving dwindling landfill space. And that makes composters an even more crucial part of our journey to zero waste.


In addition to being the leading supplier of compostable resins, solid resins, water-based polymers, radiation-curable resins, photoinitiators, additives and solvent-based resins, BASF also provides a range of polyurethanes to help improve equipment in the printing and corrugated packaging industries.


Today's busy lifestyle is driving consumer trends for convenience and freshness. Packaging innovations such as stand-up pouches, single-serve and ready-to-eat meals make it critical that your package protects and preserves the product. When you require freshness, optics, and strength, you can rely on Ultramid® nylons.



BASF and the Seattle Mariners are teaming up for "Sustainable Saturdays", a season-long program at Safeco Field to promote the kind of environmentally conscious practices that have earned the club the prized position of number one in energy efficiency and number two in recycling in Major League Baseball.
