BASF offers film-forming agents including coalescents, open-time prolongers and plasticizers. Our portfolio focuses on high-performance and sustainable products with renewable content that are non-phthalate and have lowest-possible VOC emissions in systems ranging from paints to plasters and sealants.
Our coalescing agents and plasticizers deliver high performance coupled with extremely low VOC content. We also provide a complete range of open-time prolongers based on renewable raw materials. Different chemical compounds and functional groups enable you to fine-tune your formulations for specific properties, including low film-forming temperatures, increased plasticization, reduced brittleness and improved adhesion.
