Explore the diverse possibilities for future materials and designs, all of which exploit the versatility of polyurethanes.
Low-energy, soft light with a flexible optical waveguide made of Elastollan®.
Both the exterior and the interior surfaces, including the bottle rack, are coated with Permaskin®. These flexible films based on thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers (TPU) refine surfaces and contours with excellent thermoform properties.
With refrigerators and freezers having to meet rising standards of energy efficiency, they need ever better insulation. Balindur™ is a highly innovative solution for fixing the insulation panels.
Elastollan® Soft Touch
Elastollan® Soft Touch is highly light- and colourfast, and renders additional coatings superfluous.
A new generation of familiar PU rigid foam systems Elastocool® Advanced achieves astonishing results with its enhanced properties. Its thermal conductivity has been reduced yet again, which means another cut in energy consumption.
Another remarkable feature can even be found in the lid of the freezer drawer: Window Spray Technology, also known by the name of
BASF Polyurethanes produces thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) with outstanding hydrolysis resistance and cold flexibility and resistance to microorganisms for the extrusion of profiles and seals.
The open-celled rigid foam Elastopor® H has a low density and very high compression strength, making it especially suited to the production of VIP (vacuum insulation panel) cores.
The Shelves are made of Elastollan® allowing extraordinary designs because of its good thermoform properties.
With its both flexible and elastic properties, Elastofoam® I delivers remarkable sitting comfort.
