From toy manufacturers to the pharmaceuticals industry, many companies' products would be impossible without plasticisers. BTC Europe GmbH began selling plasticisers made by BASF SE in Italy on April 1. They include Hexamoll® DINCH®. "This is definitely the series' product of the future. It is especially suitable for application areas in which quality and high safety standards are the top priority," says Juan Tortosa, Distribution Business Iberia & Chemicals Europe at BTC.
The biggest advantage of Hexamoll® DINCH® is that it does not use phthalates. Some phthalates can cause damage to the human endocrine system, while others impact on the liver. This makes it particularly interesting for manufacturing printing inks and varnishes that are used for labelling packaging in the food, toy and medical sectors – in other words, everywhere that people come into direct contact with packaging or products, such as sports equipment. Non-phthalate plasticisers can be used directly in production without any problems – only minor adjustments in the formula and process parameters are required. Hexamoll® DINCH® is characterised by its low viscosity, as well as being completely odourless and extremely compatible with PVC. "These benefits make Hexamoll® DINCH® the market leader in the plasticiser segment", says Tortosa.
