LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF SE introduces new low odour XSB dispersion, expanding its paper coating portfolio for the Nordic market.

BASF’s new low odour binder for paper coatings, based on styrene butadiene, is specially designed for odour sensitive applications in the board and packaging market in the Nordic region.

Although applicable for all printing applications, the new product is particularly suitable for food contact and liquid packaging board. The low odour XSB binder is characterized by its minimal content of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It complies with all relevant eco label and food contact requirements.

“The enhancement of our product line is a clear demonstration of our commitment to the paper and board industry. Our new binder enables best runnability in typical customer applications and with all common recipe formulations,” said professor Dr Thomas Schiele, vice president paper coating chemicals Europe.

Binders with higher solid content out of Hamina, Finland

Additionally, BASF is introducing new, high solid binders, which will be manufactured in Hamina, Finland. These binders are characterized by a solid content of up to 55 percent. They help to reduce CO2 emissions during transportation of the binder and during drying of the formulated coating colour. The new high solid binders can help to reduce complexity in handling and ordering processes and are suitable for demanding applications with high-performance requirements.
