BASF Automotive Refinish Coatings
A brand of BASF - We create chemistry

R-M invites its customers to look back at the milestones of the company’s history. The motto is: “Being successful means being innovative.” Thanks to its innovations, the brand has always made a significant contribution to the development of the automotive sector.

Starting the celebration in Detroit, the birthplace of R-M, it continues at the international R-M Refinish Competence Center in Clermont-de-l’Oise (France), where R-M built its first European plant 50 years ago, via an exhibition showing how R-M’s products and color expertise have developed and through historical exhibits relating to the brand’s history. In addition, digital development in paint training and the promotion of young talent via the R-M Best Painter Contest will be also celebrated this year.

Worldwide, the R-M brand would like to share its experiences with its customers – and its success stories. The brand will be celebrating 2019 on both this page and social media with the hashtag #rmpaint100yo throughout the year.

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.
