    On Our Agenda: Innovations

      Research and innovation are the motive forces of our business. We always work on developing the most attractive innovations for our customers. One of our latest innovations is a new specialty polyamide suitable for components which are high-gloss - Ultramid® Deep Gloss.

    Ultramid® Deep Gloss

    Ultramid® Deep Gloss is a new specialty polyamide suitable for components which are high-gloss. It reproduces structures true to detail. Thus, the material enables an interplay of light and shadow high in contrast. This provides designers with new opportunities to combine unusual textures with new levels of emotion. Initially only available in piano-black look, now in contrast colors and color.


    Ultramid® Advanced T1000

    BASF is now extending its polyphthalamide (PPA) portfolio by Ultramid® Advanced T1000 – a new compound group based on the polyamide 6T/6I. Ultramid® Advanced T1000 comprises the strongest and stiffest products of the Ultramid® (PA) family with stable mechanical properties up to temperatures of about 120 °C. It offers high resistance against humidity and contact with challenging media – outperforming standard polyamides and many other PPA materials.

    Ultramid® Vision

    BASF has now succeeded in developing Ultramid® Vision, the first semi-crystalline polyamide that allows light to pass through largely unhindered. Compared to opaque standard polyamides, Ultramid® Vision shows very high light transmission with low light scattering. Ultramid® Vision – the first semi-transparent polyamide.

    Ultramid® Advanced N

    Ultramid® Advanced N is a new polyphthalamide by BASF with an excellent property profile: The compound portfolio offers excellent mechanics at elevated temperatures. In addition, the PPA compounds can withstand humidity and contact with challenging media while maintaining their strength.  


    With its combination of properties, SLENTITE eclipses all existing insulating materials. The new product with its lambda value of < 17 mW/m x K achieves the best insulation performance for a ready-to-use panel. Compared to conventional products, insulation 25 to 50 percent slimmer is possible.


    Infinergy® - Small Beads, Big Possibilities

    Infinergy® is the world’s first expanded thermoplastic polyurethane (E-TPU). The closed-cell, elastic particle foam combines the properties of TPU with the advantages of foams, making it as elastic as rubber but lighter.
