We create chemistry for advanced construction
To achieve groundbreaking formulations providing outstanding workability and physical properties, your system needs advanced raw materials. BASF offers a broad range of powder and liquid additives which enable you to formulate innovative products.
The properties of construction materials, such as dry mortars and prefabricated materials, are influenced by the quality of local raw materials. Therefore, interactions between organic and inorganic binders, fillers and a range of chemical additives need to be controlled to ensure the best performance of the system. Our application-focused technical experts in our laboratories support you in optimizing your formulations and choosing the right raw materials.
We provide you with the right solution for your specific raw materials and special local requirements. With our Construction Additives and Formulation Know-How for Construction Materials, we especially support you in Flowable Systems, Non-sag Applications, Refractory and Prefabricated Materials.
Creating chemistry for more sustainable construction materials
To drive sustainable development, we reviewed our entire portfolio under sustainability aspects by using the standardized "Sustainable Solution Steering Method". Looking at economic, environmental and social needs, we have identified key issues along the entire value chain for the Construction Material segment. On this basis, we are able to assess the sustainability contribution of each product in its specific application.
