BASF offers its customers individual coatings solutions as the automotive industry focuses on sustainable manufacturing processes. The Coatings division has now been awarded the "Excellent Supplier 2014: Leading Technology Award” by Shanghai General Motors Co Ltd (SGM).
As the only coatings supplier to win the annual award, BASF Shanghai Coatings stood out from around 4000 SGM suppliers due to its excellent on-site service and leading technology. "We appreciate our long-term partnership with BASF. We are impressed by BASF’s timely and efficient on-site service, which supports our business development and sustainability goal,” said Adam Chang, Senior Manager Purchasing Department, Shanghai General Motors Company Ltd. "With BASF’s innovative coatings technology, we have reduced solvent use and volatile organic compound emissions in our painting lines, achieving a more sustainable car manufacturing process.”
Since 1998, BASF has been a reliable partner to SGM supplying a full range of automotive coating products, including waterborne coatings and CathoGuard 800 e-coat. The latest e-coat product line CathoGuard 800 does not contain tin and is recognised for its low solvent content.
