The new highlyautomated High-Throughput Screening equipment at BASF allowsyou to test your coating formulations quickly and economicallywith the aid of robots. This enables you to optimize the pigments,resins and additives contained in your coating formulations tomeet the demands of the particular application. The integratedcharacterization unit enables you to examine in detail the effectsof different formulations on properties such as scratch andchemical resistance.

This isthe ideal way to test highly complex coating formulations efficientlyand quickly using our leading edge robot – from the raw materialsthrough to the finished paint.04 05
Characterization anddata managementHigh-Throughput Screening solutionIntelligent management of test dataOur High-Throughput Screening facility is embedded into anintelligent data management that assists you in designing yourexperiments and processing your data quickly. The datamanagement administers information on the raw materialsand supports you in varying the composition of coatings andplanning the processing conditions. The test results arerecorded precisely and the data is stored in a database forsubsequent visualization and evaluation. This allows you toidentify optimized coating formulations quickly, and to derivequantitative structure-property relationships. With this informationyou support your technical marketing and offer your customersthe best possible service.
