BASF Coating Center

BASF’s Coating Center is a unique facility providing a wide range of coating solutions, product samples and demonstrations, as well as advice and support on adhesive technologies. 

BASF works closely with key machine manufacturers to continually optimize coating technologies and new plant concepts. By using our installations, customers can maintain their daily production capacity while simultaneously pursuing product development. Our support can facilitate the decision-making for a change of technology or new investment. 

Our dispersion facility is the fastest and most flexible trial facility for adhesives in the world, allowing each set-up to be individually tailored and adapted. Customers can test all common coating systems, as well as the latest and as yet unestablished techniques. The pilot coater for acResin® demonstrates the advantages of the UV acrylic hotmelt.
