BASF Acquires Extrusion Technology from B.C. Foam

BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany, has purchased the PET foam business of the Italian company B.C. Foam S.p.A., headquartered in Volpiano. The companies have agreed not to disclose the purchase price for the transaction. The acquisition includes production facilities and intellectual property rights, as well as a special extrusion process which enables the production of high-performance PET foams with very high densities. These PET foams are primarily used in wind turbine rotor blades and will extend the product range of BASF for the growing global wind energy market. As well as being used in the wind energy sector, high quality PET foam boards are employed in lightweight composite materials that are particularly well-suited for applications in the automotive and aeronautics industries, as well as in shipbuilding.
