Labels and packaging

Clear labeling of products

Most BASF products are labeled with simple industrial labels on the packaging. These standard labels without a banderole were designed so they can be produced cost-efficiently and locally. Companion brands (former field 2,3 brands) are printed as black logos connected to the BASF brand with a white line. 

If products support marketing activities, the logo bar design is applied. 

Label templates as well as exact dimensioning can be found in the Downloadcenter.

Clear labeling, minimal effort

  • Clear labeling of products.
  • Meeting all legal requirements.
  • Minimum effort: Monochrome print of the Companion brand as well.
  • Uniform design principle worldwide.
  • If the costs are too high, Companion brands can also be left out of the label.

Example for a standard label for Companion brands

Companion brands should use the logo bar design. Their logo is placed in the logo bar next to the BASF logo connected with a white line. Product brands of the indivudal brand are included as text in the text field of a label. If the product brand itself is an individual brand, the logo can be placed in the logo bar (refer to Corporate Design principles).

All labels and packaging need to follow the core elements of our Corporate Design.

Example for a label for Companion brands

  • With the logo bar layout brands can be displayed using promotional pictures and texts. 
  • That is why the logo of the Companion brands are positioned in the logo bar next to the BASF logo connected with a white line (follow the same guidelines as the other communication measures).
  • If additional elements (e.g. legal requirements) are needed, they need to be placed in the layout as well.
  • The guidelines for print media are applied. 

  • Containers, tanks, barrels and packaging whose primary purpose is transport must not include lettering beyond identification labels.
  • Advertising can be included on the packaging only if it will remain at the customer’s site for a longer time and gives a good impression of the BASF brand (clean, no corrosion, etc.). Its benefit must outweigh the costs.
  • As communication tools for market communication, containers, tanks and the like are designed in the logo bar layout. The surface used for the design follows the same proportions and design rules as posters.
