20 years of Glasurit 90 Line

It’s the anniversary for an environmentally friendly and revolutionary technology: in 1992, the waterborne Glasurit 90 Line paint system was launched.

Twenty years later, thanks to its ongoing development, it is the preferred waterborne basecoat system for countless bodyshops worldwide.


Glasurit 90 Line made automotive refinishing future-ready and environmentally friendly. “Thanks to the low solvent content, with 90 Line, bodyshops have had no problems complying with the current VOC regulations,” explained Dr. Thomas Krüger, head of Technology Management for Automotive Refinish Coatings at BASF. “Our customers rely on the basecoat line all around the globe because it unites environmental friendliness and simple and reliable processing with a high degree of economy and first-class refinishing results,” Krüger added.


What distinguished 90 Line from the competition 20 years ago and still does today is its outstanding color accuracy which is due to the perfect interplay between basecoat system and color system. The integrated Color Profi System makes it possible to reproduce more than 164,000 colors, simply, quickly and reliably. This is how 90 Line guarantees a refinishing solution for every vehicle and every colour.
