‘We create chemistry’ is the key value for BASF, and we continuously seek for more sustainable solution sourcing from nature.

As bio-based polyols, Sovermol® has been specially designed for application in flooring coating, waterpipe coating, adhesive and putty applications. It aids to safe and clean pipe surface for drinking water; it provides comfortable, elastic and reliable flooring coating for gyms or kindergartens; it offers green protection to our wind energy equipment for clean energy to enlighten our home and life with be-loved family. Furthermore, Sovermol® can be used to formulate low VOC or solvent-free coating system as well as alternative coating for BPA containing epoxy system in certain applications.

Sovermol® products are polyfunctional alcohols made of renewable raw materials such as rapeseed oil, castor oil, soybean oil and palm kernel oil. Based on BASF advanced technology, Sovermol® is added 2 functional groups Polyester and Polyester in one molecule which well balance Hydrolysis stability and Hydrophobic properties respectively. This uniqueness enriches Sovermol® properties like good adhesion, excellent workability and good weathering.

These natural oil-based polyos help you to comply with environmental standards while meeting even the toughest coating requirements. What’s more – improving the environmental profile of your process will make your products more attractive to both existing and new potential customers.
