BASF Introduces Coatings Adhesion Promoter with Lowest Hazardous Air Pollution

Published on 2005-01-25. Author : SpecialChem

SOUTHFIELD, Mich.,-- BASF has introduced new AdBloc, an adhesion promoter that has the lowest hazardous air pollutant (HAPs) content of any comparable product on the market. AdBloc will help manufacturers of plastic automotive parts meet Federal emission standards for HAPs while meeting or exceeding industry standards for adhesion and resistance to humidity and gasoline spills.

"AdBloc represents state-of-the-art technology in adhesion promoters," said Keri Krueger, Technical Manager for BASF's Automotive OEM Coatings business in North America. "Rigorous testing in the laboratory and in the field has demonstrated its outstanding performance properties. At the same time, AdBloc helps users significantly reduce their emissions and enables many of them to meet government HAPs emission standards without using or installing expensive emission-control equipment."

According to Krueger, AdBloc adhesion promoter has been approved by two of the major automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and is already being used by an automotive parts supplier to one of the OEMs. In addition, AdBloc has successfully undergone engineering trials by another major automotive OEM, with final approval pending.
