BASF Inaugurates its Second Dispersions Manufacturing Line in Daya Bay, China

BASF celebrates the opening of its second polymer dispersions manufacturing line at the Daya Bay facility in Huizhou, China. This development immediately addresses the rapidly increasing local demand for high-quality dispersions, reinforcing BASF's commitment to supporting its valued area clients.

The plant's advantageous placement near raw material sources reduces delivery lag times. This improves BASF's competitiveness and agility in answering customers' demands. With increased production capacity, the factory will continue to offer complete assistance to a variety of sectors such as paints, construction, packaging, and adhesives.

BASF is committed to creating new and innovative products to meet China's increasing needs. Andreas Fechtenkoetter, Senior Vice President, Dispersions Asia Pacific, BASF, expounded on the company's plan for increasing production capacity, stating that "Both existing demand and the expansion of our product offerings drive our growth. For instance, in addition to architectural and construction coatings, we have expanded our product portfolio to cater to the battery industry. Our Licity and Basonal Power products are essential anode binders for lithium-ion batteries. Therefore, expanding our production capacity is crucial to meet the increasing demand for batteries in China and the wider Asia Pacific region. It also elucidates the rationale behind the name change in March, transitioning from BASF Paper Chemicals Huizhou to BASF Specialty Material Huizhou, a move intended to encompass the broader range of product offerings."

BASF's commitment to pushing the frontiers of innovation within conventional sectors is unwavering, as seen by the groundbreaking patented IO-Hybrid Technology. “This technology goes beyond the product's basic functions, delivering additional benefits to customers and end users. Using interior wall coatings featuring IO-Hybrid Technology enhances opacity, resulting in superior interior design aesthetics, and provides antimicrobial properties within 24 hours. Furthermore, this innovative technology eliminates the need for customers to add in-can biocide to paints, thereby reducing VOC emissions,” stated Mirian Tiemi Zanchetta-Sbragia, BASF's Vice President of Business Management, Dispersions Asia Pacific.

Since its inception in 2012, the Daya Bay facility has played a significant role in promoting development in southern China. In Q4 2022, the company broke ground on its second manufacturing line. As of Q2 2024, the new manufacturing line is fully operating, demonstrating BASF's commitment to fostering innovation and serving the changing demands of industries throughout the globe.
