Hexamoll® DINCH is the safe plasticizer for applications with intensive human contact

BASF has developed the non­phthalate plasticizer Hexamoll® DINCH especially for use in products with close human contact. Hexamoll® DINCH is perfectly suited for sensitive applications like medical devices, toys or food packaging due to its excellent toxicological profile and very low migration rate.

Dialysis

Blood contact devices are typically used in dialysis tubes, where patients are under­ going treatment several times per week for a prolonged time. Due to the prolonged exposure it is important to use the safest raw materials possible. Hexamoll® DINCH is perfectly suited due to its very low migration rate.

Intravenous therapy

During intravenous therapy, solutions come into contact with PVC bags and tubing before they enter the human body. Using Hexamoll® DINCH ensures minimal migration of plasticizers from the storage container to the solution.

Blood bags

Safety is of high importance when using blood storage bags made with traditional plasticizers for treatment of newborns, young children and patients who require frequent transfusions. Several studies have shown that blood storage containers with Hexamoll® DINCH can preserve the function and viability of platelets and red blood cells. Hexamoll® DINCH is a safe choice for applications with blood contact.

Masks

Breathing masks come in close contact with the skin as well as the saliva of the patients. Hexamoll® DINCH has an extremely low tendency to be extracted by saliva, as compared to conventional products.

Enteral feeding

Safe enteral feeding sets are very important for pat...
