MOSCOW (MRC) -- The new Master Builders Solutions Training Center at BASF's site in Oldenburg, Germany, has been officially opened, reported the company on its site.
The new training center in Oldenburg has been created to train and inform customers and BASF's Master Builders Solutions experts on the professional application and handling of Performance Flooring and Waterproofing products and systems - thus fostering their professionalism, knowledge and experience.
"We will now have the opportunity to demonstrate the use and the benefits of our products to our customers at one central location in Europe. We will also be welcoming colleagues from outside the region and connecting with them even more," says Luc Van Eldere, Head of Business Segment Management Performance Flooring Europe. "This is a milestone for us and clearly demonstrates that we are investing in our business and our customer support and service at our site in Oldenburg", comments Roland Nowicki, Vice President Construction Chemicals Europe.
Under the brand MasterTop, BASF offers a broad portfolio of innovative flooring systems for a wide range of applications. The requirements faced by each individual floor are different - therefore products have been developed in such a way that they can be tailored individually to meet specific performance criteria, the technical and aesthetic requirements, as well as allowing fast, cost-effective application. The non-solvented MasterTop flooring systems feature low emissions, high strength and low maintenance expenses combined with high durability. Thanks to the wide variety of colours available and liquid application, these flooring systems also allow individual seamless floor designs with respect to shapes and colours.
The MasterSeal range from BASF includes high-performance impregnation and waterproofing products to protect structures against the undesired ingress of water, moisture and contaminations from their surroundings. The products include rapid-hardening waterproofing agents for manual or sprayed application that can be used for the refurbishment and protection of many different types of buildings. These market-leading innovative technologies are suitable for the waterproofing of all types of structures, including car parks, road surfaces, industrial plants, water treatment and wastewater plants.
As MRC wrote before, BASF is significantly expanding its production capacity for about 20 specialty amines at its Verbund site in Ludwigshafen, Germany. BASF says it will invest a double-digit million euro amount in expanding current production facilities, which are planned to go on stream gradually by early 2017. The specialty amines are especially used for the manufacturing of coatings, lubricants, crop protection products and pharmaceuticals.
