Thanks to this future oriented approach, BASF is one of the leading manufacturers of plasticizers and manufactures a broad portfolio covering phthalates, such as Palatinol® N (DINP) and Palatinol® 10-P (DPHP) as well as alternative plasticizers, such as Hexamoll® DINCH, adipates and polymeric plasticizers. These are used in a variety of products.
In addition to conventional applications, BASF plasticizers also enable applications in situations with low temperatures, low fogging tolerance and very weather-resistant applications (exposed to UV light or cold).
We've even got the right product for special applications. Our non-phthalate plasticizer Hexamoll® DINCH is suitable for a whole range of sensitive applications such as food packaging, medical devices and toys, as well as environments that require very low migration tendencies and high oil resistance.
BASF's plasticizer portfolio in Europe includes the following product groups:
Polymer plasticizers or polyadipates are polyesters of aliphatic dicarboxylic acids. BASF manufactures and markets a wide range of polymeric plasticizers as secondary plasticizers or for special purposes.
