BASF to produce paper-coating binders at its Hamina site

Gerald Ondrey

BASF SE (Ludwigshafen, Germany; now produces its new cost-efficient binders (CEBs) based on styrene-acrylics and styrene butadiene at its site in Hamina, Finland. Since 2012, the successful product line has already been supplied primarily to customers in Central Europe from the site in Ludwigshafen. Now, customers in the Northern European and Russian market can also benefit from the new products. BASF can thus supply the whole European paper industry.

Cost-efficient binders are an important building block in the growth plans of BASF's Paper Chemicals division. Through the development of a new technology, BASF has been successful in reducing the production cost of the binders. With this, paper manufacturers can significantly reduce their chemical costs. BASF will continue to invest in research and development of cost-efficient binders, thus laying the groundwork for the consequent expansion of the CEB portfolio. “Following the huge success of our cost-efficient binders in Central Europe, we continue to invest in this product line to expand the success story all over Europe. With this, we provide paper manufacturers an additional interesting solution to further reduce their costs,” says Andreas Tuerk, senior vice president, Paper Chemicals Europe.
