New BASF coating technology centre in India and new application centre in Mexico

  • Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden

At the end of June 2012, BASF opened its new coating technical support lab in the Indian city of Mangalore. The employees at the new facility will provide lab services including product development, analytical testing, certification and new pigment qualification. The technical support lab will complement the existing expertise at the Mangalore site. In early July, BASF opened a new application centre for vehicle paints and an extension to the development laboratory at its production site in Tultitlán in Mexico. The aim is to provide improved technical support for the automotive industry in North America and to develop sustainable and customised coating technologies. Among other things, the new facility will offer technical services for base coats, pigments and dispersions and for introducing new colours.
