Here you find the latest news releases of BASF's Coating division.
The BASF Color Report 2020 for Automotive OEM Coatings shows the automotive color palette shifting in unconventional ways, unveiling a wider range of chromatic colors rolling off the world’s assembly lines. Diverse shades like blue and yellow are making gains in some regions, while red and violet are slowly cutting the lead held by the achromatic colors in other parts of the world. The expanding color spaces made the overall spectrum broader than 2019 and added a flash of brilliance.
For the next two years, BASF becomes a preferred partner for the sales of paint related products (PRP) to the BMW global refinish network.

Now, with the addition of PRP products including RODIM and other products, BASF strengthens its total offer in line with BMW’s growth strategy. The latest agreement includes PRP products to BMW authorized dealers and body shop networks around the world.
BASF has released its 2020-2021 Automotive Color Trends collection with a variety of shades and effects that show the way of modern automotive coatings.

The colors serve as inspiration to automotive designers for vehicles that will be on the road in three to five years. Many have effects or textures, making them truly a tactile experience as well as a visual and emotional experience.
