    BASF enables thin, lightweight components use in automotive applications

    In a joint project, BASF and STR Automotive have brought components for premium vehicles into serial production for the first time using the new material Elastolit® R 8819 Lightweight. In comparison to conventional processing with PU-RRIM materials, the new process convinces due to significant weight reduction. The usual component thickness of 3.0 mm can be reduced to less than 2.5 mm, without detrimental effects on processing, quality or mechanical properties.

  • Covestro develops PU system for faster demoulding

    Efficiently insulated refrigerators reliably protect food from spoilage. Covestro has developed new polyurethane systems, which enable up to 20 per cent faster demoulding of refrigerators and also enhance the good insulating efficiency of existing rigid polyurethane foams.
