Yutong Bus Co., Ltd., one of the world’s leading bus manufacturers, and BASF have jointly developed an advanced polyurethane (PU) based seating for high-end, new-energy buses.


Optimized to provide improved flame-retardant properties, the seating made with BASF’s Elastoflex PU complies with the European directive “ECE Regulation No.118” for flame resistance.


The seating made with BASF’s Elastoflex PU complies with flame resistance regulation.

“This is the first time BASF has developed an integrated PU seating system. With our expertise in advanced materials and PU technology, we can help Yutong meet the high flame resistance standard for electric bus seating,” said Desmond Long, Vice President, Business Management Transportation, Performance Materials Asia Pacific, BASF.


The foam-cushioned seating made with Elastoflex additionally provides a comfortable travel experience for passengers due to its elasticity. Its low odor property further improves the vehicle’s interior air quality.  


The seating also provides environmental benefits owing to its durability and lightweight. The durability of Elastoflex, which helps to extend its service life, allows the seat to retain its cushioning effect and comfort, even after being subject to prolonged weight stress. The lightweight foam material improves the vehicle’s energy efficiency and thus lowers emissions levels.
