Healthy Living with BASF

Whether it’s a comfortable sofa or clean drinking water, many things that make living more healthy and congenial contain BASF products. Let’s find them out!

Heading to the low-carbon era, China is continuously promoting energy efficient constructions. The optimization of energy utilization in buildings is a key topic, which is also contributed by the insulating windows.

Jointly with Dalian Shide Group, BASF introduced the new co-extrudable Ultradur® for the reinforcement of thermally insulated PVC window profiles in April. It is also the first Engineering Plastics innovation developed at BASF’s Innovation Campus in Shanghai.

Window profiles made with durable, lightweight and highly thermal insulating Ultradur® enables energy efficient construction and contributes to a reduction in energy required for heating and cooling of buildings. As such, it meets with increasingly stringent insulation requirements. Additionally, energy efficient construction directly translates to energy cost savings for consumers. This accordingly increases the value of buildings using such window profiles.

“The energy saving window profile co-developed with Shide is an important milestone of innovation developed in close cooperation with the local customers in China.”
