Hexamoll® DINCH is BASF’s trusted non-phthalate plasticizer especially developed for applications with close human contact: medical devices are one application area, but Hexamoll® DINCH is also ideal for children’s toys or food contact materials as it has an excellent toxicological profile and is approved and certified by many authorities and institutions worldwide.
Dr. Yu Liu, R&D Director of Bain Medical, explains why they chose Hexamoll® DINCH from BASF: “Customer safety is of utmost importance to us. Therefore, one key reason we chose Hexamoll® DINCH from BASF was that scientific studies prove its suitability even for blood storage1. It more so shows advantages compared to other products: Hexamoll® DINCH demonstrates lower migration rates than DEHP (DOP) (a phthalate plasticizer still dominant in the market).”
That means less plasticizer is taken up by the blood and ultimately by the human body. In addition to this scientific argument, BASF’s regulatory compliance is another major reason why Bain Medical uses Hexamoll® DINCH. “It is included in the European Pharmacopoeia, which provides common quality standards for medical devices and pharmaceutical products”, explains Dr. Liu. “By selecting a product, that is listed in there, we can ensure patients’ safety.”
