Chemical company BASF recently announced that it has doubled its manufacturing capacity for UV acrylic hotmelts (sold under the name acResin) by building a second production facility in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

The company says that this step has “strengthened its position as the leading solution provider for sophisticated applications in the adhesives sector.”

The company reportedly invested several tens of millions of euros to build the new facility.

“In the premium adhesives sector, the global trend is moving towards high-quality and sustainable application solutions. The UV-curable 100% acrylic hotmelt acResin meets these high requirements and, as a partner of the adhesives industry, we aim for continued growth in this specialty business,” said Jürgen Pfister, Vice President Business Management Adhesives & Fiber Bonding EMEA at BASF.

The acResin is used for specialty products in the pressure-sensitive facet of the adhesives sector, which includes adhesive tapes for construction.
