Summer Intern in Colorants Lab The summer intern will work as a Laboratory Technician with our R&D team at BASF Technical Center in Charlotte (NC) to develop Colorant Formulations for architectural paints. Colorants are pigment dispersions that are added to white paint to create the colored paint that consumers purchase at big box stores such as Lowes and Home Depot. When a customer buys a gallon of paint at the store, the employees dispense colorant into a non-colored gallon of base paint, and then mix it in the paint shaker to make paint with the desired color. Our mission is to develop colorants and paints that perform better, last longer, and look great on the wall. Lab responsibilities include preparing colorant formulations, adding them to paints, and performing applications tests to measure performance. Interested students please submit a resume to by March 12.
