Technical Support Lab
Taking another stride towards developing India as an international competence center, legacy BASF Coatings (India) Private Limited has set up a new coatings technical support lab at Mangalore, India. This new facility at Mangalore will support lab activities including product development, analytical testing, certification and new pigment qualification, catering to the coatings customers of BASF outside of India.
Manasa Nanaiah and Rajkumar Muranal, both technicians, are observing test specimens drawn from the humidity cabinet. In the Physical Test Lab, painted panels are placed in the humidity cabinet to study, compare and evaluate the coloristic and performance properties of coatings in a controlled environment.
