Although demand initially came from toy manufacturers, DINCH is increasingly being used in medical applications and food packaging, BASF says.

BASF plans to double capacity for Hexamoll DINCH, a phthalate-free plasticizer, at its headquarters complex in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Through construction of a second plant, DINCH capacity will rise to 200,000 metric tons per year. The plasticizer, 1,2-cyclohexanedicarboxylic acid diisononyl ester, debuted in 2002. BASF quadrupled capacity to 100,000 metric tons in 2007.
