BASF’s Coatings Division has invested €1M in the construction of an application centre in Oldenburg, Germany. The centre, which includes a spraybooth for large objects, several work rooms and a training and presentation room, will be used for applications in the wind energy sector, as well as for marine and aircraft coatings and a range of applications in diverse industrial segments.
"At the new application centre, we are able to simulate the various painting conditions of our customers worldwide and optimise our products accordingly,” explained Dr Achim Gast, head of Post-Coatings at BASF. A wide range of climate conditions can be simulated. BASF’s paint experts will also train their customers at the new centre, which offers ideal conditions for conducting special training courses.
