BASF doubles plasticizer capacity with startup of new plant in Ludwigshafen

Mary Page Bailey

BASF SE (Ludwigshafen, Germany; www.basf.com) has doubled capacity of its non-phthalate plasticizer Hexamoll DINCH from 100,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) to 200,000 m.t./yr at its site in Ludwigshafen, Germany. With a second Hexamoll DINCH plant, BASF will satisfy growing customer demand and strengthen supply security worldwide while continuing to ensure consistently high quality. The new plant has started up successfully and the expanded capacity is available from now on.
 
 Hexamoll DINCH is a non-phthalate plasticizer especially developed for applications with close human contact. Due to steadily growing demand since its market launch in 2002, Hexamoll DINCH has become an established plasticizer in food packaging, medical devices and toys. During the last few years there was also an increasing demand in the flooring and wall covering industry.
 
 With its excellent toxicological profile and low migration rate Hexamoll DINCH has set high quality standards and is the ideal choice for a wide range of applications. Several leading brand owners and market players put their trust in Hexamoll DINCH.
