Go ahead. Replace metal with plastic.
ULTRASIM® technology routinely delivers 90-95 percent accuracy in predicting the performance of parts molded using BASF material.
After many failures, retailers had doubts about all-plastic shopping carts. Watch how ULTRASIM® helped Bemis change the game.
ULTRASIM®: What is it?
In Part I of this series, we delve into why the status quo isn't working and how ULTRASIM® is different.
ULTRASIM®: Why use it?
In Part II of this series, we unpack the benefits of ULTRASIM® to the design process and to the end component.
ULTRASIM®: Who uses it?
In Part III of this series, we explore other applications—besides automotive—where ULTRASIM® can optimize part design.

We know that developing high-performance plastic components can be demanding, expensive and time consuming.
That's why BASF created ULTRASIM® integrated computer-aided engineering technology made specifically for simulating plastic part behaviour.
Factoring in flow dynamics and fiber orientation, ULTRASIM® helps reduce development costs, speed time to market and enhance final product quality and performance, by not relying on average material property values.
Plastic fails differently
Injection-molded plastic behavior is affected by flow patterns and gate locations.Learn why this matters
Not just another simulator.
ULTRASIM® is a computer-aided engineering (CAE) technology that BASF designed specifically for developing high-performance plastic components.How ULTRASIM® differs
Get much better results.
ULTRASIM® technology not only improves the performance of the end product, but it also improves every phase of developing the end product.Benefits that make a difference
Not just for cars anymore.
Historically, ULTRASIM® technology has been a well-known resource in the automotive industry, and that is still true, but ULTRASIM® can be used in industrial and consumer goods applications, as well.Equal opportunity part optimization
Development is challenging.
BASF wants to help you shoulder the burden of development. ULTRASIM® is just one of the ways we do that.Discover how BASF makes it easier
