Engineering plastics used in electrical applications (E/E) have to show excellent electrical performance, good mechanical properties as well as high dimensional stability under heat. In daily operation, they have to guarantee insulation and therefore secure handling. They have to reduce fire risk in the event of an electrical defect or exposure to external sources of ignition. With a lot of applications, the plastic is used for designing the exterior of components as well. This is why design requirements, e. g. for surface quality, haptics, and colors, are becoming more and more important.
The medical plastics market is demanding. When it comes to people's health, there can be no compromise. The manufacturers of medical devices therefore have to deal with very stringent state directives and very high development costs. With its PRO package - Ultradur(R) PRO (PBT) and Ultraform(R) PRO (POM), BASF offers medical plastics for applications like inhalers, insulin pens, drug delivery devices, surgical instruments and therefore serves the special requirements of the medical industry.
Your demands are high whether it belongs to the properties of materials used in your packaging or the process behavior of the applied products or ecological topics. Take a closer look at our solutions and get in discussion with our experts to find out how we can provide you with the best solution.
To be effective in the marketplace powertools must offer outstanding performance, durability and efficiency. BASF materials are well-established solutions in this field and offer outstanding product properties such as high stiffness, excellent impact strength, best flame resistance and very good media resistance.
Orthopaedic insoles made of Elastollan® - more comfortable, sustainable and individual
Elastollan®, BASF's thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), is used as a filament by the duro3D paver in the production of individual shoe insoles using 3D printing processes. In sole applications, the material is characterized above all by its excellent vibration damping and resilience. Under heavy use, e.g. when used in sports shoes, it is also the abrasion resistance that makes the sole durable and comfortable to wear. Even with fluctuating temperatures, the insert retains its desired properties.
