BASF signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Shanghai Zhengming Modern Logistics Co., Ltd. (Zhengming) to develop insulating polyurethane (PU) sandwich panels, for use in the construction of refrigerated storages for the cold chain industry in China.

Under the agreement, BASF will support information and technology exchange as well as market development while Zhengming will designate BASF as its PU supplier for all joint cold storage projects. The two parties will also explore joint marketing and promotion opportunities for PU sandwich panels.

“We have typically collaborated with various partners along the cold chain, such as panel producers, to develop PU sandwich panels. This new collaboration marks a significant milestone for BASF, as we are collaborating directly with a cold storage owner,” said Desmond Long, Vice President, Business Management, Performance Materials Greater China, BASF.

Huang Zhengming, CEO of Zhengming said, "China’s cold chain industry is developing rapidly. By using BASF's Elastopir solutions with excellent fire insulation performance in our products, we strive to protect the cold chain ecosystem.”

BASF’s Elastopir is used in the core of insulated sandwich panels. In addition to being energy-efficient and safe, Elastopir also offers customers a more sustainable solution as fewer flame retardants and no bromine are needed for production.
