BASF expands waterproofing solutions capacity in Russia
At the Podolsk, Russia, plant of its Construction Chemicals’ division BASF has launched the production of waterproofing solutions under the MasterSeal brand. The solutions portfolio of Master Builders Solutions in the region thus will be expanded stepwise.

BOLSHOE TOLBINO, RUSSIA: BASF SE said that its construction chemicals division has expanded the capacity of waterproofing solutions from the MasterSeal solutions range at its plant located in Bolshoe Tolbino, Podolsk District.

Thus, BASF extends its portfolio of master builders’ solutions in Russia and enhances the supply network for regional markets and customers.

At Podolsk, BASF is already producing a large range of concrete admixtures, flooring solutions, cementitious grouts and concrete repair mortars. The new production lines for MasterSeal 550 and 588 waterproofing solutions address special needs like tolerance to very harsh conditions (up to -50°C). They are for example used to protect potable water reservoirs.

In addition, BASF is also producing construction chemicals in Kazan (Tatarstan), Russia and is planning to construct a third plant in 2017.

“We recognize the need for quicker service and delivery of construction chemical solutions in world-class quality. We progressively expand our production and distribution network in Russia and other markets with excellent growth rates and prognoses,” said Ralf Spettmann, head of BASF’s global construction chemicals division.

“Local production allows for more flexible pricing and delivery to local customers compared to importing products from production sites abroad,” said Sergey Vetlov, managing director of BASF construction systems Russia and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
