That’s where BASF comes in, offering a wide range of products to meet all your exterior coating needs.

BASF is committed to providing high-quality, sustainable solutions for homeowners. One of the key features of our new portfolio of premium exterior latex products is that they are free from intentionally added fluorosurfactants. These products provide exceptional coverage, durability and resistance to weathering.
The range of exterior architectural coatings includes options for various surfaces, including wood, metal and masonry. If you’re looking to repaint your exterior surfaces, we have a product to suit your needs. These coatings come in various finishes, allowing you to achieve the perfect look for your home.

This updated line includes Acronal® PLUS 4230, Acronal Edge 4142 and Acronal Edge 4248. These offerings are highly effective options in the exterior coatings space.
For example, Acronal Plus 4230 is a high-performing general-purpose product suitable for the manufacture of flat and satin paints. The high solids content makes it ideal for use with slurried pigments and formulations that have limited available free water. Paints formulated with Acronal PLUS 4230 demonstrate high scrub resistance and outstanding wet adhesion to aged alkyd paints. The product can be formulated at 50 g/l of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and has excellent film properties and freeze/thaw stability.

Meanwhile, Acronal Edge 4142 has been a premium exterior latex for a couple of years, but it was recently improved to have exceptional block and print resistance while being free from intentionally added fluorosurfactants. The product is a high-performance all-acrylic architectural binder suitable for satin through high gloss systems in white through deep bases. This binder has top-notch performance, differentiating block and print resistance as well as color and gloss retention even in the most challenging architectural applications. In the demanding world of cabinet and trim paint, this product will bring the top level of performance needed to meet interior and exterior applications.
Acronal Edge 4248 is a new addition to the premium exterior coatings latex portfolio that is also free from intentionally added fluorosurfactants. This product offers premium performance for exterior paint and primer in one formulation. It offers superior top-coat durability and exceptional primer properties including efflorescence resistance and tannin blocking. Acronal Edge 4248 offers exceptional dirt pickup resistance, surfactant leaching resistance, and grain cracking resistance, ensuring your home looks freshly painted for longer, even in harsh weather conditions.
In addition to sustainability, our exterior coatings binders are designed with the consumer in mind. “We understand that our customers want products that are easy to apply, offer excellent coverage and will stand the test of time,” said Yasmin Nassar, BASF Technical Specialist. “Our exterior coatings range is designed to meet these needs, providing a seamless painting experience from start to finish.”
