Resist the effects of heat, cold, rain, burning sunshine and mechanical stress with BASF’s Elastocoat®. Elastocoat is not a superficial coating for aesthetic appeal only. It provides a new skin—high in mechanical resilience and resistant to both chemical and climactic impact—and gives a high-gloss, scratch-resistant layer over the car’s paintwork. Coatings are also used on windscreens to provide greater strength.
