We are happy to announce our fourth web seminar series on resins for furniture and flooring, taking place across June and July.
These sessions will cover trends and topics relating to UV/EB technology – from our new high functional polyester acrylate for high-performance UV coatings, to the revival of PVC-based tiles, to UV resins for parquet coatings, to the science behind electron beam technology.
As we continue our web seminars tin-free catalysis, label-free light stabilizers, and façade coatings move into the spotlight
After a short break over Easter, we are pleased to announce the next set of web seminars, taking place across this month.
Our next sessions will include the following topics:
Looking to make your moisture-curing coatings more environmentally responsible? Address environmental needs with tin-free catalysis for moisture curing systems. Join our session in mid-April and learn more about our tin-free catalyst Basionic Kat 1.
Looking for alternatives to Tinuvin® 326? Don’t miss our guide to label-free products in late April.
Alternatively, if you’re interested in façade-coatings, we have dedicated sessions on 21-22 April.
As we always strive to provide you with topics that are not only exciting but also relevant to you professionally, we hope we have offered interesting web seminar subjects to you in the last months. Our goal is to meet all your needs in the diverse world of additives and it will be our pleasure to see you all at the upcoming sessions.
Find out how easily more sustainable and cost-effective corrosion protection can be achieved: Watch our latest vodcast episode!
Spoiler alert! Episode Two of our Resins Stories Unplugged vodcast has been released. This session is all about more sustainable corrosion protection with DTM and multilayer systems. Our experts explain how easily such coatings can be formulated and applied using the water-based Acronal® PRO 770 dispersion.
Bringing forward our joint business in the long term
As you know, a fire at BASF SE’s Hydrogen, Carbon Monoxide and Oxogas production in Ludwigshafen as a consequence of a leakage has led to a disruption of the Hydrogen, Carbon Monoxide and Oxogas supply. We would like to sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to your company. Please be assured that we continue to use all reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects of this shortage. Nevertheless, we would like to continue the dialog on innovations and new product developments, with the aim of bringing forward our joint business in the long term.
Be well-prepared in the new year with smart solutions for WB & UV systems and our sustainability toolbox
We are happy to invite you to our 1st web seminar series 2021 for Resins for Furniture & Flooring.
Register now for the following topics:
Waterbased 1K offerings for furniture coatings to offer high resistance to chemicals, wear and scratch for flatstock and furniture backings as well as medium and high quality furniture.
Excellent wood treatment with UV systems to meet the latest requirements of large furniture manufacturers such as IKEA when it comes to the quality of coated materials (e.g. IOSMAT 0066) and the use of renewable or recyclable resources (e.g. IKEA renewable guideline).
Sustainability toolbox for furniture & flooring to save fossil resources with up to 100% of renewables and reducing your CO2 footprint – without compromising on product performance.
New web seminars: Performance and Formulation Additives for wood coatings, surface slip and corrosion resistance
We wish you and your family a happy and healthy New Year and all the best for 2021.
What better way to start the New Year than to attend our first series of web seminars on performance and formulation additives?
In the first two web seminars end of January, we will show you how you can enhance the beauty and durability of wood coatings.
In the third, we focus on Formulation Additives improving surface slip and the fourth concentrates on optimizing corrosion resistance for water-based DTM-Coatings.
Thank you for your interest in our products, web seminars and for your helpful feedback in 2020. We look forward to your participation and the interaction with you in 2021.
Web Seminars on Resins for Furniture & Flooring, 1st Series 2020/21
We may not be able to meet in person, but we are still committed to collaborating and sharing insights. Therefore, we are pleased to invite you to a new series of web seminars, taking place later this month and continuing into early 2021.
Our first two webinars will cover two topics that are very much on trend:
Treating wood with UV systems to make furniture coatings more durable and sustainable
Solutions to boost sustainability without compromising on performance
You can sign up now to attend. We look forward to seeing you online and to sharing our knowledge and insight with you.
Dedicated to supporting our customers, and striving to find new ways to collaborate with every one of you
Throughout 2020, the health of our teams, customers and partners has been the most important thing to us – and this is especially true as we see COVID-19 transmission rate rise again. At BASF, our message is simple: We are always there for you and we are always open to communication. Find out about our Joncryl® 953X portfolio designed for a luxurious home office; our broad portfolio for corrosion protection with benefits for every field of application; and Efka® PB 2770, a silicone-free defoamer for radiation curing systems.
Web Seminars for Performance and Formulation Additives, 4th Series 2020
Topics covered this time include our dispersion toolbox, which enables label-free universal pigment concentrates, and Rheovis PU 1340, our highly efficient Newtonian PU thickener for flat to high-gloss coatings in the areas of architectural coatings. In addition, we deal with light stabilizers due to several requests. We present Tinuvin 5866 – the optimal solution for a wide range of applications, typically sealants that heat up in the sun – and Tinuvin 533-DW for joinery, wood and other industrial coatings that require UV-A and UV-B protection.
Let`s turn challenges into opportunities by intensifying the technical dialogue
The additives business is by nature one that thrives through customer intimacy. Our prime objective across all the industries we serve is to help turn the specific challenges that each customer faces into opportunities.
Looking at our latest developments, we are happy to offer you the flexibility of a dispersing agent that is suitable for a broad application range and achieves top results with both inorganic and organic pigments. Furthermore, we have recently launched Joncryl® 9530, a new straight acrylic dispersion which brings out the beauty of wood surfaces. You can read more about these and other products in this newsletter.
White coated furniture is increasingly popular, especially in living and kitchen areas. However, in everyday life small mishaps can happen quickly: a spilled coffee or a carelessly thrown key can leave irreversible traces on bright surfaces. With Joncryl® 9500 and 9502 and Laromer® UA 9135 Aqua, we provide you with the right solution.
Acronal® PRO acrylic-modified emulsions are one step closer to the replacement of solvent-based systems. Our APEO and zinc-free acrylic dispersion Acronal® PRO 770 for improved metal protection helps you to save formulation cost.
Breaking new ground in coating surface modification
To cover the latest needs of the coatings industry, we have enhanced our Formulation Additives portfolio with a novel concept of coating surface modification. It is based on fluoro-modified block copolymers that cross-link with the binder matrix.
In recent years, water-based coatings have gained in popularity among professionals and consumers alike as they offer a high-quality, environmentally friendly alternative to solvent-based products. By replacing solvents with water as a liquefying agent, these eco-friendly coatings are low odor, easy cleaning and have low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.
Wanting a resource efficient and environmentally-friendly finish? Our latest highly reactive UV resins are specially designed to meet the major challenges of UV coatings for the Furniture and Flooring industry.
Striving to comply with today’s emission limits? Our new synergistic combination, Efka® FA 4611 and Laropal® A-8L, reduces volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in pigment concentrates. And that’s not all…
