Global chemical company BASF recently announced a single-digit million-euro investment in the capacity expansion of water-based polyurethane dispersions at its Castellbisbal site in Spain.

“We want to continue to provide our customers with high-quality polyurethane dispersions and help them grow by ensuring supply reliability,” said Frank Hezel, Vice President Resins and Additives EMEA at BASF.

“Considering the rising demand for polyurethane dispersions in Europe, this investment underlines our intention to assume a leading position in the business of polyurethane dispersions.”

Polyurethane dispersions constitute an important addition to the acrylate dispersions business, according to the company.

In this, BASF is making a contribution to the change from solvent-based coating systems to environmentally friendlier and more sustainable water-based systems.

This expansion adds to the field of adhesives, automotive and industry coatings, as well as parquet flooring.
