Printing & Packaging

BASF creates chemistry to supply high quality products for printing and packaging. Our resins and additives add value to your formulation. We provide high quality raw materials for printing of food packaging, flexible packaging, corrugated board, paper or paperboard, labels, magazines or catalogs. Helping you to achieve more sustainable packaging is another thing we are experts in.

Our portfolio includes

  • water-based solid resins, resin solutions and emulsions

  • solvent-based polyurethanes and resins

  • energy-curable resins and reactive diluents

  • formulation additives (e.g. defoamers, dispersing agents, surface modifiers) used in printing inks, overprint varnishes and pigment dispersions

Sustainability is such a big topic. The question is: Where to start?

For example, when it comes to more sustainable packaging inks and coatings. In our view, the best way to start is to talk about your goals and drivers. Then we can find out together which of our sustainable resin solution helps you achieving these goals in the best way.
