LUDWIGSHAFEN, Germany - BASF is extending its existing production facilities for Laromer® UV/EB acrylates, which are part of BASF’s C3-Verbund system, at its Ludwigshafen site in Germany. By significantly increasing its production capacities, BASF is responding to the rising demand for high-quality UV/EB acrylates and strengthening its position as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of UV/EB resins used as binders for energy-curable coatings and inks. The additional capacities will be available the third quarter of 2016.
UV/EB-curable acrylates are one of BASF's pillars of growth. In response to the demand, BASF began setting up additional capacities at its site in Meaux, France, early in 2014.
