The new, extremely scratch-resistant clearcoat iGloss not only provides auto bodies with a brilliant and robust exterior, but also gives them even longer-lasting scratch resistance. To achieve this leap forward, the researchers modeled their work on nature, developing a "hybrid material" that combines the advantages of "hard" materials and "soft" substances. Over time, iGloss provides substantially better protection against micro-scratches.
In this podcast you w ill learn how chemical innovations from BASF help to develop a new, extremely scratch-resistant clearcoat for cars.
BASF Corporate Communications started a regular bilingual Podcast service in April 2007 to report on BASF's innovations and research and development activities in an easy-to-understand, informative and entertaining way.
