Powertools with BASF plastics are built to resist

Powertools have to show excellent performance, durability and efficiency in order to be successful in the market. The used materials play a vital role in keeping the user safe and the powertool operational. Our solutions ensure a long and productive lifetime.

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 and make the powertools therefore lighter and easier to handle.
