BASF has extended its production facilities for Joncryl water-based emulsions. In addition to the production site in Heerenveen, the Netherlands, BASF has ramped up its production of selected Joncryl emulsions at its Ludwigshafen site.
“With this investment, we reinforce our position as a leading manufacturer of water-based resins and emulsions used for printing inks, overprint varnishes and functional coatings for paper and board as well as flexible packaging applications,” says Ulf Neidlein, Vice President Business Management Resins & Additives Europe at BASF. “This is our way of responding to the increasing demand of our customers for printing and packaging applications and further strengthens our delivery reliability.”
With its Joncryl portfolio, BASF is addressing performance challenges of printers and converters such as consistency, resistance and solubility as well as sustainability challenges, increasing the effectiveness and structural quality of their packaging.
