Ludwigshafen , Germany -- Due to a shortage of raw materials caused by an unforeseeable technical defect in its iso-Nonanol (INA) plant in Ludwigshafen, Germany, BASF SE is currently unable to produce the plasticizers Plastomoll® DNA, Palatinol® N, Hexamoll® DINCH and selected Palamoll® grades (652, 654, 656 and 858). Therefore BASF is forced to declare a Force Majeure situation.

The INA plant is currently shut down to do the necessary repair work. To the current best knowledge BASF is expecting to restart production of INA in Ludwigshafen within the next 14 days.
