Norbin History

Fulfilling the promise of color

The Norbin name derives from two Chinese characters that translate as: promise of color. Norbin offers a high-quality, cost-effective range of primers and clears across North America, in addition to colors in Mexico. This BASF brand is geared toward the value-for-money segment of the refinish market, featuring competitive pricing, consistent quality, and ease of use.

BASF’s product portfolio includes products for multiple industries. A product that is compliant for one region, industry, application or end use, may not be compliant for another region, industry, application or end-use, and BASF accordingly disclaims all representations, conditions and warranties of fitness for a particular purpose.

To assist automotive refinish customer searching for information about BASF products that meet the VOC limits for automotive refinish use, BASF provides Wall Charts that list the products that are compliant with the automotive refinish VOC regulations in specific regions in North America (country, province, state, air districts). It is the responsibility of the purchaser/end-user to ensure they know and understand the regulations for their specific region, industry, application and end use and ensure that the products that they are using are compliant with all applicable regulatory requirements and any permits specific to their business.
