BASF expands production facilities for Laromer UV/EB acrylates. Customers use Laromer resins as binders to formulate for example coatings for furniture and flooring.

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF SE expands its existing production facilities for Laromer UV/EB acrylates, which are part of BASF’s C3-Verbund system, at its site in Ludwigshafen, Germany. The additional capacities will be available as of the third quarter of 2016.

By significantly increasing its production capacities, BASF is responding to the rising demand for high-quality UV/EB acrylates and strengthening its position as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of UV/EB resins used as binders for energy-curable coatings and inks.

UV/EB-curable acrylates are one of BASF's pillars of growth. In response to the demand, BASF began setting up additional capacities at its site in Meaux, France early in 2014.

Customers use Laromer resins as binders to formulate coatings for furniture and flooring, inks and overprint varnishes as well as coatings for plastics and metal substrates. In addition, BASF offers a broad portfolio of complementary resins such as polyisocyanates, dispersions and additives.

“We have experienced a considerable increase in global demand for our high-quality UV/EB acrylates over the last few years. This investment is our response to rising demand. The additional capacities will help us increase our supply reliability and show our commitment to provide customers with high-quality UV/EB acrylates,” said Ulf Neidlein, VP, who is responsible for BASF’s resin and additive business in Europe.
