FLORHAM PARK, N.J., -- BASF has launched PLURACOAT™, a portfolio of specialty additives that can help paint, coating, ink, adhesive and sealant manufacturers to address needs that range from environmental compliance to improved cost/performance requirements.

BASF's PLURACOAT brand additives are based on novel, proprietary technology focused on functional performance. PLURACOAT consists of three functional platforms addressing environmental compliance (low volatile organic compound, alkyl phenol ethoxylate free), pigment dispersing applications, and multipurpose coating applications requiring enhanced performance, such as wetting, defoaming, dispersing, and adhesion promotion.

"PLURACOAT products offer significant flexibility to coatings formulators. This unique combination of functional platforms gives our customers a toolbox that enables them to meet their compliance and cost/performance requirements," said Ronald Lee, Industry Manager for BASF's Industrial Specialties in North America. "PLURACOAT provides the performance and value that coatings formulators need."

BASF is a leading global supplier of colorants, dyes, pigments, dispersions, surfactants and auxiliary products, including waxes and ultraviolet (UV) light stabilizers.
