Performance materials move the world

 

Almost anywhere you look in a modern mode of transportation—car, truck, airplane or ship—polyurethane and plastic technologies are there to improve durability, fuel-efficiency, design flexibility and manufacturing processes.

 

From design to manufacturing to aftermarket, BASF high-performance solutions enable shorter production times, lighter weight parts, higher quality, lower costs, reduced emissions and fewer volatile organic compounds (VOC).

 

Polyurethanes and plastics are used for seating, instrument panels and body parts, suspension and suppression of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), coatings and bedliners, trim panels and seat skins, tire covers, powertrain components, electronic modules and boat floors.

 

These materials have allowed the development of lighter, safer and more fuel-efficient vehicles with state-of-the-art comfort, long-term reliability and reduced environmental impact.

 

BASF products contribute to making vehicles faster, lighter, stronger, more comfortable and more fuel efficient.
