In a bid to further strengthen its strong customer-orientation and develop and offer innovative solutions to the construction industry customers in South Asia, BASF has opened a new Construction Technology Centre in Mumbai, India. The Centre will support the development and testing of new applications for concrete admixtures, cement additives, waterproofing, flooring systems, precision grouts, concrete repair and protection products, amongst others.
Located in close proximity to the manufacturing facility in Navi Mumbai, the technical centre is a state-of-the-art laboratory facility occupying an area of 5000sqft. The facility houses several pieces of equipment including a concrete rheometer, high capacity compression testing machine, equipment to measure durability properties of concrete and a micro calorimeter to develop new cement additives. The site also incorporates a training centre, where BASF’s team will impart knowledge on the applicability and testing of new products to contractors and applicators.
