BASF offers a wide portfolio of innovative technologies and solutions for all four coating
layers – from the e-coat to the primer, the basecoat and finally the clearcoat. These technologies ensure that the paint is resistant to the year-long high stresses caused by rain, UV radiation, hot and cold temperatures, gravel from the road, and the brushes at the car wash.
The innovative e-coat CathoGuard® 800 is the leading technology for automotive corrosion protection providing excellent material properties.
BASF has also developed an innovative clearcoat, iGloss®. The extremely tough clearcoat sets new standards in scratch resistance. It reduces the creation of annoying microscratches, like those that can come about at the car wash.
BASF also develops and markets automotive aftermarket products for a comprehensive portfolio of coating solutions. The automotive refinish coatings are approved by most of the leading automotive manufacturers and are used in their authorized bodyshops.
