BASF is dedicated to create sustainable solutions. Our goal is to design products that help the printing industry to comply with current and future legislation while maintaining a high level of performance. In close partnership with our customers we identify products that help achieve specific sustainability goals, strengthen differentiation and enable regulatory compliance.
Strong company commitment
BASF is committed to support sustainable solutions. For this reason, we have been signatories of Responsible Care®1 since 2006, a global chemical industry initiative aimed at achieving continuous improvements in the fields of environment, health and safety.
We have identified three major areas where our products continue to make a real difference to social responsibility, environment and economy. These are:
Turning theory into action, BASF has developed several alternative water-based technologies to meet the quality and performance demands of the printing and converting industry:
Joncryl® FLX water-based resins for printing inks
Joncryl® HSL line water-based resins for heat-seal lacquers
Within formulation additives we have developed dispersants which allow a faster grinding process and give a higher color strength.
We constantly strengthen our portfolio with regards to food contact regulations.
