BASF, the largest diversified chemical company in the world, presented its innovative solutions for energy-efficient and low-maintenance construction in Russia at the trade fair MosBuild, reported the company on its site.

The company"s new wide-range construction portfolio is aimed to increase energy efficiency in buildings and enhance durability and, thus, reduce repair and maintenance costs.

"In Russia, more and more emphasis is being placed on sustainable solutions. Sustainability means combining economic success with environmental protection and social responsibility. These construction industry goals can only be realized with the help of innovations from chemistry," says Sergey Andreev, Head of the BASF Business Center Russia and CIS, whose responsibilities include promoting dialogue between the construction industry and BASF.

Thus, BASF introduced a whole range of innovative solutions, which includes Neopor, an advanced version of Styropor, the classic polystyrene insulation material, which contains special graphite particles that reflect thermal radiation like a mirror and reduce heat loss in the home; polyurethane applications that contribute to energy efficiency - Elastopor, Elastopir, Elastospray, and Elastopor H - rigid polyurethane foam boards for insulating roofs, walls, floors, and ceilings as well as PU sandwich elements for roofs and facades; innovative concrete admixtures - Glenium, Rheobuild and RheoMatrix - which allow concrete to reach increased energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

BASF materials also help to protect structures from weathering, which in turn reduces maintenance and repair work. Besides, the company presented durable high-performance flooring for industrial construction as well as repair mortars, solutions for structural strengthening, waterproofing and protection. In case of industrial buildings a durable cement and polymer-based grouting for precision machinery guarantee trouble-free operation.

As MRC informed previously, recently BASF has started to roll out its Master Builders Solutions brand in Asia Pacific as part of a phased launch process. The global brand is a sign for BASF"s commitment to the construction industry and represents a wide range of construction chemical solutions previously sold under a variety of specialty brands.

BASF is the largest diversified chemical company in the world and is headquartered in Ludwigshafen, Germany. BASF produces a wide range of chemicals, for example solvents, amines, resins, glues, electronic-grade chemicals, industrial gases, basic petrochemicals and inorganic chemicals. BASF had sales of EUR72.1 billion in 2012. The construction industry is one of BASF"s key customer industries, accounting for up to 10% of total Group sales. Sales to the construction industry in 2012 were EUR5.2 billion.
