Innovative Material Solutions for Vehicles

New Head Lamp for Hyundai

A new headlamp now in production with Hyundai Genesis G70 will be unveiled at CHINAPLAS 2018. Featuring BASF’s thermoplastic Ultrason® E, it enables compact design owing its superior heat resistant performance.

New Solution for Door Handles

BASF will also launch a stylish new solution for door handles, made with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), which offers excellent adhesion to thermoplastics, softness and high temperature resistance combined, as well as good vibration damping for greater comfort.

Memory Foam Embedded Bus Seat

A memory foam embedded bus seat using MDI (methylene diphenyl di-isocyanate) will bring a superior level of comfort to passengers. The seat retains its feel even after being subjected to a weight stress test, and its low odor property creates good air quality for passengers inside the confined environment of a bus.

Stylish Solutions for Mobility

At the same time, BASF’s stylish solutions for mobility help reduce vehicles’ fuel consumption by saving weight. A step board to be showcased at CHINAPLAS 2018 is 40% lighter than conventional materials.
