Muenster, Germany – March 20, 2014 – BASF’s Coatings division is presenting an array of new developments and refinements at the PaintExpo, in response to the ever higher requirements for surface coatings. PaintExpo, the leading international trade fair for industrial coating technology, will take place from April 8 to 11, 2014, with around 460 exhibitors from 24 countries. It is already the fifth time that the fair will be held at the Karlsruhe fairgrounds.
The Coatings division of BASF will be presenting its wide range of products and applications at the trade fair. With its RELEST® brand exhibits, BASF will be presenting powder and liquid coatings. These provide, i.a. in the plant construction and agricultural machinery industries, high corrosion protection and reliable resistance against weather and environmental impacts.
Thanks to low material costs, high corrosion protection and good applicability, BASF’s CathoGuard® e-coat stands out in industrial coating (e.g., radiators).
Salcomix® paint systems provide precise colors for refinish applications. Around 20,000 color formulas are available, which allows customer requirements to be processed quickly and flexibly.
At the PaintExpo, BASF will be exhibiting its wide product portfolio for individual customer requirements along all processes in coating technology. From corrosion protection to scratch resistance, as well as color diversity, visitors will find something for every application in the industrial sector.
With over 12,500 square meters of net floor space, PaintExpo presents comprehensive and market-oriented offerings, ranging from pretreatment to final inspection. Visitors will find BASF’s booth 2134 with various exhibits in Hall 2.
