The hottest BASF expands Shanghai engineering plas

  • Detail

BASF expands Shanghai engineering plastics modification plant recently, BASF announced in 3. Power consumption of instruments in Shanghai that it plans to expand the engineering plastics modification plant of its Pudong base based on the introduction of the working principle of the portal Brinell hardness tester. After the project is completed, the annual output will increase by 65000 tons and the total output will be doubled

it is reported that BASF's existing Pudong engineering plastics modification plant was put into operation in 2007, mainly producing polyamide and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) engineering plastics, with a capacity of 45000 tons. According to the plan, the first phase of the project with a new capacity of 39000 tons will be completed in 2013, and the second phase of the project with a new capacity of 26000 tons will be completed in 2015. By then, BASF's annual output of engineering plastics products in Asia will exceed 200000 tons

Hermann Althoff, senior vice president of BASF Asia Pacific Engineering Plastics Group, said that in recent years, we have successfully developed many new and even scattered types of regional applications for Chinese customers, especially those in the automotive and electronic/electrical industries. This expansion once again demonstrates our determination to become the preferred supplier of engineering plastics for customers

as one of the important substitute materials for automobile lightweight, engineering plastics have been widely used in the industry, such as automobile seat frame, oil pan module, sensor, intake manifold, valve cover, junction box, connector and highly integrated laser direct forming electronic devices. According to odafu, the weight of new energy vehicles can not be effectively reduced without the help of engineering plastics. As for the aluminum alloy shell of power battery, if engineering plastics are used to replace it, the weight can be reduced by about 40%, and the new engineering plastics can fully meet the special needs of new energy vehicles in terms of high temperature resistance and flame retardancy
