Brenntag has been working with BASF for many years in the sale of plasticizers. Our portfolio here primarily comprises the non-phthalate plasticizer** Hexamoll®DINCH, which was specially developed for applications with close contact with people. It is therefore particularly suitable for the manufacture of sensitive items such as toys, medicines or clothing. Brenntag sells the BASF products exclusively in numerous European countries and also began doing so in the African market in 2016.
As part of a project in Ghana, for example, Brenntag advised customers on the use of plasticizers in the production of flip-flops. To ensure that top-quality advice is provided, the Brenntag employees in Africa received special training beforehand at BASF in Ludwigshafen on the properties and possible applications of the various plasticizers.
**Plasticizers are used to soften hard PVC, thereby making it flexible and durable.
