On a quest for performance

From everyday plastics to engineered systems developed to push the boundaries of performance, polymeric materials cover an extremely broad range of technologies and applications. One common feature still unites those products. They all rely on high quality raw materials to excel in their targeted markets. With inorganic salts and alcoholates produced under the expertise of BASF chemists in Ludwigshafen, Germany, and with application development specialists available to support users in the field, BASF is ideally positioned to provide the inorganic chemicals that customers need to succeed.

Examples of applications include:

Anhydrous Aluminum Chloride

  • Synthesis of advanced thermoplastics

Sodium Methylate and Sodium Ethylate

  • Production of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA / PVOH)
  • Processing of silicones

Ammonium Carbonate , Ammonium Bicarbonate and Ammonium Chloride

  • Rubber and foamed plastics
  • PTFE polymers
  • Paints and coatings
  • Specialty functionalized polymers

Sodium Nitrite

  • Polymer inhibitor and blowing agent
