Building a strong future starts with the right partner

Structural durability. Reduced energy consumption. Shrinking labor force. These are just a few of the demands facing the construction industry.

Jobs must be performed quickly, economically, and with durability in mind - all to meet the needs of the 9 billion people that will be on our planet by 2050. Whether residential or commercial construction, roads, or bridges, there is no structure untouched by these demographic and market demands.

At BASF, we combine market insight, technical expertise, and a full formulation mindset to drive innovation that meets the construction industry’s needs. With an extensive portfolio of water-based acrylic and styrene butadiene latex polymers, formulation additives, and performance additives, we provide a full formulation approach for high-performance building materials, durable construction coatings, and long-lasting infrastructure.

The desire for speed, strength, and ease of use drives our innovation and product development. Let us help you design the solution to your building industry challenge.
