Composite Technology Solutions

Composite Technologies such as spray transfer molding, pultrusion or our Ultracom system can be a solution for many challenges. Lightweighting, complex design geometry, recyclability or the use of more sustainable materials are but a few of the reasons to reach out to BASF about your next project.

Cost Effectiveness

Plastics offer numerous advantages compared to other materials: With versatile application options they allow for great freedom of design and are also more cost-efficient than alternative materials. With our tools and many years of experience, excess materials and rejects have become a thing of the past.

Food Contact

The Elastollan® FC portfolio has been specially developed for the use in food contact applications and is often used in the food industry or in drinking water applications.
Das Besondere an den Materialien der BASF sind zum einen ihre herrausragenden Eigenschaften und zum anderen die Produktideen, die sie ermöglichen. Diese werden in der sogenannten „Wunderkammer“ präsentiert, einem Trichter, dessen Wände die Augen abschirmen und den Betrachter so jede räumliche Orientierung verlieren lassen. Die perspektivische Verzerrung lässt sowohl Objekte als auch Besucher in einer verblüffenden Collage verschmelzen. Ein Spiel mit der Wahrnehmung – genauso charmant und analog, wie es 1865, im Entstehungsjahr der BASF, noch gang und gäbe war.

What makes BASF materials special is both their excellent properties and the product ideas they enable. These products are presented in the so-called “Wunderkammer”, or “cabinet of wonders” – a funnel, whose walls block off the peripheral view to suspend spatial orientation. The perspective distortion merges objects and visitors moving amongst them into an astonishing collage. Playing with perception – in just the same charming, analogue way as was so popular in 1865, the year in which BASF was founded.

Individualization and Lifestyle

Here you will find customized material, processing, and design solutions for your needs. We will help you custom-design your products and distinguish yourself from others – with innovative solutions as varied as your customers.

Metal Substitution

BASF engineering plastics offer decisive advantages over established metal structures in many areas. The range of applications for these intelligent plastic solutions extends far beyond automotive engineering and opens up significant development potential for the solar, construction and water industry.

Miniaturization and Connectivity
