Analytical Expertise and Quality Management

We provide ranges from standard electronic grades, up to the highest quality levels available in the market. The challenge of quality consistency is to maintain impurities of cations, from 1 ppm to the lowest ppt range of between 100 ppt and even 10 ppt. Our quality control and quality management team is at the forefront of ensuring BASF's customers receive reliable chemical solutions that will help them to be more successful.

Our QC Network
