BASF „Advanced Materials & Systems Research” – Ludwigshafen
In the Advanced Materials & Systems Research division, BASF develops new structural materials, dispersions, functional materials as well as organic and inorganic additives for a wide range of customer industries including automotive, construction, packaging, paints, detergents and cleaning products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, water and the wind industry.
Numerous innovative materials of BASF were used in the construction (2015) of the new research building. The newly developed high-performance insulation panel Slentex based on inorganic aerogel allows a slim and highly efficient heat insulation due to its lower heat conductivity. For the glass fiber reinforced concrete facade elements, the concrete additive Master X-Seed was used. It accelerates the hardening of concrete and improves its durability.
