BASF declares end of Force Majeure on Plastomoll DNA, Palatinol N, Hexamoll DINCH and selected Palamoll grades


BASF SE has fixed the causes for the Force Majeure for its iso-Nonanol- (INA) based plasticizers produced in Ludwigshafen, Germany, and can hence declare the termination of Force Majeure.

The Force Majeure was originally announced on July 21, 2010, due to a shortage of raw materials to produce the plasticizers Plastomoll® DNA, Palatinol® N, Hexamoll® DINCH and selected Palamoll® grades (652, 654, 656, 858) caused by an unforeseeable technical defect in the INA plant in Ludwigshafen, Germany.
