BASF Coatings and Nissan Announce Streamlined Processes

BASF Coatings has expanded its partnership with Nissan, now also supplying the automaker with coatings and paints for the Pathfinder and Infiniti models at its Smyrna plant in Tennessee, USA. BASF supplies Nissan with coating solutions from e-coat and basecoat to clearcoat. BASF is also working on more streamlined technologies with Nissan in emerging markets such as China. The most notable advantage of the 3 Wet waterborne system is the elimination of one drying phase. Previously, car bodies required two 30-minute rounds in the drying oven, after application of the primer, and the basecoat/clearcoat. In the new method these three layers are applied wet-on-wet, and then subsequently dried. This shortened process leads to shorter production time, less energy consumption, streamlined paint lines and above all lower emissions.
