Plasticizer Product Portfolio

Thanks to this future oriented approach, BASF is one of the leading manufacturers of plasticizers and manufactures a broad portfolio covering phthalates, such as Palatinol® N (DINP) and Palatinol® 10-P (DPHP) as well as alternative plasticizers, such as Hexamoll® DINCH, adipates and polymeric plasticizers. These are used in a variety of products.

Our extensive range of plasticizers for soft PVC includes the right product for your applications.


In addition to conventional applications, BASF plasticizers also enable applications in situations with low temperatures, low fogging tolerance and very weather-resistant applications (exposed to UV light or cold).

We've even got the right product for special applications. Our non-phthalate plasticizer Hexamoll® DINCH is suitable for a whole range of sensitive applications such as food packaging, medical devices and toys, as well as environments that require very low migration tendencies and high oil resistance. 

BASF's plasticizer portfolio in Europe includes the following product groups:


ChemCyclingTM: plasticizer portfolio

BASF‘s CcycledTM plasticizers are man­ufactured by using chemically recycled plastic waste as feedstock and therefore help to save fossil resources and to increase the amount of recycled plastic waste.

Biomass Balance: plasticizer portfolio

BASF‘s biomass balanced plasticizers are man­ufactured by using renewable raw materials as feedstock and therefore help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to save fossil resources.

Adipate Plasticizers

BASF manufactures and markets adipate plasticizers as secondary plasticizers or for special applications.

Polymeric Plasticizers

Polymer plasticizers or polyadipates are polyesters of aliphatic dicarboxylic acids. BASF manufactures and markets a wide range of polymeric plasticizers as secondary plasticizers or for special purposes.

Phthalate Plasticizers
