Solutions for durable, comfortable seating
Consider this: the New York City subway serves 1.64 billion riders each year. Thatís a lot of people touching and sitting on the same surface every day. And letís face it, not every rider is kind to his or her seat. From propping up muddy feet to outright vandalism, transit seating takes a beating every day.
Flooring that lasts
The floors in public trains and buses need to last, withstanding a high volume of traffic while delivering the lowest weight possible.
Insulation for noise reduction
Our open-cell melamine foam solution provides industry leading acoustical properties. Used to insulate ceilings and walls in buses and trains, it reduces road and rail noise to a whisper.
High-performance composite panels
Vehicles constructed of composite panels provide increased comfort thanks to reduced noise and enhanced thermal performance, while also bringing improved durability to the table. Lightweight and fast to install, panels also improve both fuel efficiency for the fleet owner and production efficiency for the manufacturer.
Durable, long-lasting interior coatings
From light stabilizers to performance chemicals for leather and textiles, BASF develops, produces and markets a high-quality range of innovative coatings and refinishes as well as the processes needed to apply them.
