Aviation Fuel Additives

Making fuel deliver more performance and value

BASF is a leading supplier of fuel performance packages worldwide. Our aviation fuel additives help reduce the costs of aviation maintenance, reduce coking issues and sustain the efficient operation of high-performance gas turbines. Beyond that, BASF's additives improve health and safety for maintenance crews by avoiding the use of less suitable additive solutions and regular draining procedures to prevent ice formation and bacteria developing in the fuel system.
