BASF has been a committed partner to Greater China since 1885. With major investments in Nanjing, Shanghai and Chongqing, as well as numerous sites around the country, BASF is the major foreign investor in China’s chemical industry, and runs the BASF Innovation Campus Shanghai as a global research and development hub.
Engine coolant - BASF first patented GLYSANTIN® in 1929, and the brand has been very popular with motorists ever since. This engine coolant has many OEM approvals from the large motor manufacturers, providing 3-fold protection against corrosion, overheating and frost. BASF works in cooperation with leading automobile suppliers to ensure that GLYSANTIN® products always fulfill the latest demands.
Brake fluid - HYDRAULAN® premium brake fluids, for more than 60 years, stand for the reliability of the brake system and therefore for the safety of vehicles. As an established partner of the automotive industry, we continuously develop products that meet and exceed both current and future requirements.HYDRAULAN® 404 ensures the highest safety standards of modern brake systems. It is especially recommended for brake systems which may include electronic stability, anti-lock, traction control, collision avoidance and distance control systems.

• High thermal stability
• Excellent corrosion protection for metals
• Outstanding elastomer compatibility
• Extremely low viscosity
Developed from OAT technology, GLYSANTIN® G40® is the OAT based coolant with highly reactive silicate additives provides extremely stable and dynamic protective layers. It also forms protective layer faster, especially on aluminum without visibly changing the surface (physical adsorption)
As silicate containing hybrid engine coolant, GLYSANTIN® G48® quickly builds a stable and thin protective layer – that protects surfaces of the cooling system against corrosion, cavitation and deposition. It has balanced combination of inorganic and organic corrosion inhibitors for high dependability. It also has a good long term experience with many automotive manufacturers.
