    BASF offers a broad variety of materials and system solutions. No matter if new types of designs combined with innovative manufacturing processes or components improving the functional properties of furniture. We support you with adequate know-how and materials and are continuously developing our product portfolio to meet your demands.

    Keeping the Look for Longer

    Paints and coatings protect wood and enhance its natural look. BASF provides high-quality pigments, preparations, stir-in pigments, dyes, and resins for this purpose.

    We focus on products and procedures that require little energy in the curing process and that produce no, or very few, emissions when used. BASF brands Luhydran® and Joncryl® are just one example of water-based dispersions for wood coatings. These products are self- and co-crosslinking dispersions, primarily used for industrial applications such as furniture, parquet, and furniture film finishes as well as 2-K- PUR water-based paints.

    One established alternative for coating furniture directly is to use finishing films. BASF offers an extensive product portfolio under the FGuard® brand for the coating of finishing films.

    Adding More Color to Furniture

    The wide range of BASF pigments and dyes creates numerous attractive colors and effects for furniture and floor coatings. For instance, it makes it possible to reproduce rare and exotic types of wood or stone.

    Orasol® dyes and pigment preparations from the Microlith® range are ideal for formulating woodstains, which are distinguished by their high gloss shine and excellent color strength.

    Polyurethanes for the Furniture Industry

    Whether it's beds, office chairs, or borders, polyurethane ensures comfort, well-being, and sophisticated design. BASF polyurethanes provide high-quality polyurethane basic products and systems, from soft and block foams to integral and rigid foams for the full spectrum of the furniture industry.

    The mold flexible foam CosyPUR® provides complete flexibility for a wide range of needs.
