Replace average performance with high performance.

 

That’s what BASF Performance Materials is all about. Our mission is to replace conventional, average-performance materials – whether plastic, fiber, foam or metal – with high-performance materials.

 

What defines ‘high-performance’ materials? You do. Our job is to match you with the right solution to achieve the performance parameters you set.

 

That means help with innovation and invention. Enhanced sustainability. Rapid speed to market. And a collaborative, solutions-focused approach to whatever challenges you face.

 

Formed as part of a global restructuring to better serve you, our connected team of high-performance materials experts and industry-leading portfolio of plastics and polyurethanes – both off-the-shelf and custom solutions – can help you meet and exceed your product development and business goals.
