BASF with an industry-specific portfolio at the ECS

One example is the Bismuth Vanadate pigment Sicopal Yellow EH 1567 (L 1130). With features such as high colour strength, increased opacity and exterior durability, this new pigment is designed to meet the needs of the decorative, industrial and automotive coatings markets. It offers a solution for customers wanting a lead-free formulation of especially bright and durable yellow shades. According to BASF, coating manufacturers are looking for dispersing agent solutions with top performance in the growing market segment of water-based coatings. The new Dispex Ultra PX 4575 provides improved colour development and lower viscosities in order to help reduce pigment usage or increase pigment loading. This product innovation meets the requirements of the European eco-label for indoor and outdoor paints and varnishes (2009/544/EC and 2009/543/EC).Another highlight is the new binder Acronal Edge 6295 for exterior paints. This binder offers good colour retention and hydrophobicity and a long durability, making it an ideal solution for increasing the durability of façade paints and picking up on the trend towards intense colour shades, says BASF.Furthermore, the company will highlight the new Solyfast catalyst for two-component polyurethane coating systems. The catalyst is initiated by UV light at room temperature and leads to shorter drying times. It is tin-free and provides a longer potlife.In addition, BASF will showcase new light stabilisers. For example, with the new product Tinuvin 5333-DW, the company offers for the first time a water-compatible blend of UV-absorber and non-interacting HALS that has been specifically developed for water-based coatings. The photo-permanence of Tinuvin 5333-DW is said to allow for the formulation of long-lasting end products, in particular clear wood paints for joinery. The product can, however, also be used for glass, plastic and various other industrial applications.
