Our high-performance engineering plastics stand out for their excellent properties and are thus well-suited for use in very advanced and highly stressable components, for example, in the automotive and industrial realms.
This product group includes our Ultraform® based on polyoxymethylene (POM), Ultradur® based on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and Ultramid® based on polyamide (PA).
Our portfolio of functional foams adds value to manifold applications. While Basotect® is mainly used for sound and thermal insulation in the construction and transportation industries, BASF offers also a construction material on an inorganic basis for passive fire protection with its Palusol® fire-protection panels. Kerdyn® is structural foam which is used inside rotor blades and adds to their stability.
Our foams stand out for their high energy absorption and low weight, good resilience and resistance against chemicals. They are environmentally friendly and offer many recycling possibilities.
Product category: Shopping trolleys, Refrigeration systems
Our specialty plastics include biodegradable co-polyesters, mainly used in various packaging applications and sold under ecoflex® and ecovio® brands. ecoflex® is the first compostable polymer of BASF on a fossil basis. Baxxodur® is an infusion resin for composite products which are primarily used in wind energy applications. The high temperature plastic Ultrason® is based on polyarylsulfone (PPSU, PSU, PESU) and used in high-quality parts and highly stressed mass-produced items.
