BASF TinopalBASF recently completed a double-digit million-euro investment to increase production capacity for Tinopal CBS optical brighteners at its Monthey site in Switzerland. Following a capacity increase in 2021, the recent completion of the investment program has now brought significantly increased capacity on stream to meet growing global customer demand.

"Despite the massive challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic and supply chain bottlenecks, we are delivering the additional volumes to our customers as previously announced," said Soeren Hildebrandt, senior vice-president of home care, I&I and industrial formulators Europe at BASF. "Tinopal® CBS enables us to support our customers’ growth with a top-quality solution for high-performance detergent formulations."

Tinopal CBS is contained in liquid and powder detergents for home use and commercial dry-cleaning. As an optical whitener, it makes textiles last longer by ensuring brilliant white results even at low temperatures and on short cycles. Tinopal® CBS is ideal for use in innovative product formats including highly concentrated liquid detergents and single-dose packs. The product meets the criteria for EU Ecolabel-certified formulations.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
