Performance Polymers

Powertools with BASF plastics are built to resist

Powertools demand high performance, durability and efficiency. The used materials play a vital role for ensuring the machines work well while not unnecessarily endangering its user.

BASF materials are well established solutions in this field and offer outstanding product properties such as high stiffness, excellent impact strength, top flame retardancy and very good media resistance. In some applications, such as hammer drills, BASFs plastic substitute metal to a certain extend and make the powertools therefore lighter and easier to handle.
