Why BASF Performance Materials?


Find new ways to improve your products.

Combine plastics and polyurethanes with a connected team of industry-leading experts. Add access to global R&D. Stir in a solutions focus.


That’s the recipe for replacing average performance with high performance. A little molecular manipulation is all it takes.


But what defines 'high-performance' materials? Well, you do. It's about successfully meeting the performance parameters you set. The ones demanded by your customers. Plastics and polyurethanes allow us, as chemists, to develop a solution to almost any manufacturing, design or build problem.


Backed by our global R&D network and connected team of industry-leading experts, our broad portfolio of off-the-shelf materials and custom formulations mean you can take your product to the next level.


BASF Performance Materials is for manufacturers, designers and builders who want innovative materials that will improve the performance of their own products. For those who know that standing still quickly means falling behind. For those who want to win in their increasingly competitive marketplaces.


Performance Materials was made for you. Our customers.
