BASF strengthens market position for optical brighteners at Monthey, Switzerland
BASF has completed a double-digit million euro investment to increase production capacity for Tinopal® CBS optical brighteners at its Monthey site. Following phase one of the stepwise 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 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.
