In the presence of the minister of economics of the German federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Prof Andreas Pinkwart, and Münster’s mayor Markus Lewe, a plant for coating foils was started up on the BASF company premises in Münster. Innovative materials applied layer by layer in an ultra-thin coat give foils additional properties, thus “functionalising” them. BASF developed the innovative coating technology and the first product – a barrier foil – within a very short time.
