May 23, 2017 – BASF says it has launched APEX, describing it as a portfolio of versatile and cost-effective binders for the paper coating market.

According to the company, APEX offers lower high shear rheology, high binding strength, and long runnability without coating buildup on blade or rod coating application methods. Depending on the formulation, the APEX product line will help manufacturers of coated paper and boards to formulate with a reduced amount of binder without sacrificing performance, promises BASF.
