Voran SportSafe safety shoe by Maincal
Maincal, the leading Argentine footwear brand, partners with BASF to launch the first safety shoe in South America made with Infinergy®, Expanded Thermoplastic Polyurethane (E-TPU). Voran SportSafe, the new safety shoe series by Maincal enables safety footwear users to move and work in comfort with all day compression technology. Elastopan® is also used in the Ultragrip sole technology, which provides greater adhesion and resistance to sliding on the most demanding surfaces. The material benefits of Infinergy® include +55% rebound in each step and Elastopan® endures +3% grip on the most demanding surfaces and hyper light midsole with maximum comfort.
TPU household floor
TPU household floor is a new generation of green environmental protection building decoration materials to meet the needs of green and green decoration. It could be used in homes, hospitals, schools, office buildings, factories, public places, shops, stadiums and other places, and has become a new trend in the decorative material industry.
The material used here is Elastollan® TPU. It ensures high material performance by having an outstanding hydrolysis resistance and excellent resistance to micro-organisms as well as being flexible and having good resistance to low temperatures. This high performance can be achieved while still being cost efficient as it is easy to process at a stable material quality and ensures production stability to optimize the production costs. Further material benefits are good scratch resistance on film surface, environmental friendliness compared to conventional solutions and a double layer film solution which results in excellent bonding between the film and PVC floor surfaces.

BoldurTM - PU composite utility poles
Made with BASF’s Elastolit® polyurethane and enabled by our unique filament winding technology, Boldur™ poles are more than twice as sturdy and resilient as conventional concrete utility poles. This enables them to stand firm in strong winds, heavy snows and other natural disasters.
At approximately one-fourth the weight of traditional concrete poles, Boldur™ poles reduce installation and life-cycle costs as they require less manpower equipment and maintenance.
The material that is used is Elastolit® polyurethane with a unique filament winding technology. The material benefits are fire resistance as Boldur poles will not continue burning, but quickly self-extinguish. Additional benefits are lightweight as our utility poles only have approximately one-fourth of the weight of concrete poles as well as durability and resilience as their strength is 10 times greater than their weight.
Autonomous wireless charger MobiPower
The autonomous wireless charger is a co-creation by ZMP, B&Plus and BASF, highlighting the use of BASF’s innovative and high-performance material solutions and competences in enabling manufacturers to market need for charging-on-demand and wireless charging. The advantages of the metal replacement are the lighter weight autonomous charger that consumes less energy, the improved costs and processing. The freedom of design due to its moldability and colorability as well as the added optimized properties such as better UV, weather durability and insulation make this a very special co-creation. Our advanced plastics also provide innovative and high-performance solutions and help improve the shelf life of the charger.
