BASF introduces two new Flotation Reagent Brands for the Mining Industry
- Launch of new product brands Luprofroth™ and Luproset™ driven by the fast-paced growth of BASF’s flotation portfolio
- New brands will complement the existing and well stablished Lupromin® portfolio
BASF mining solutions is excited to announce the launch of its two new product brands: Luprofroth, for our growing frothers portfolio, and Luproset, tailored for flotation modifiers. In recent years, BASF’s flotation business has expanded from niche applications to a broad range of flotation solutions. By introducing two distinct brands for frothers and modifiers, BASF can now communicate its flotation portfolio in a clear and consistent way. This reinforces our commitment to continuous innovation and marks a major step towards becoming a full solution provider for the mining industry.
The launch of the Luprofroth brand comes with the introduction of a brand-new range of sulfidic frothers carefully formulated to enhance the overall flotation circuit performance. Graeme Stewart, Sulfide Flotation Specialist for BASF, explains, “Our new sulfidic frother portfolio comes with a wide spectrum of products suitable for diverse process conditions, such as bubble size, bubble coalescence, presence of fine and coarse particles, induction time and froth stability. A key feature of the new range is its enhanced EHS profile, with lower toxicity and ecotoxicity values and reduced flammability risks, which are often major concerns for our customers.”
The Luproset portfolio consists of multiple innovative technologies designed to improve mineral recovery, maximize concentrate grades, and reduce reagent consumption with clear downstream benefits. “Because BASF recognizes the challenges and transformation in the mining industry, our priority is to develop solutions that enable our customers to achieve more with less. An example I particularly like is the Gold Activator Luproset A 1127, an innovative technology that improves gold recovery at low dosage rates,” says Benjamin Hepe, Head of Global Segment Flotation, BASF Mining Solutions.
One of the key advantages of Luprofroth and Luproset is BASF’s extensive integrated chemical value chain. As a result of the backward integration, along with BASF’s global scale operations, we are able to utilize resources more efficiently and expand our mining portfolio continuously through innovation.
Caren Hoffmann, Vice President Mining Solutions for BASF, adds, “I am very excited about the launch of the new brands, it sets a consistent base that will enable us to continue growing our flotation business for frothers and modifiers alongside our collectors. Our team is constantly working on the development of new technologies, and we expect to advance further in this field with the expansion of a dynamic pipeline.”
