BASF starts up hexamethylene di-isocyanate facility in Caojing, China

CAOJING, CHINA: BASF is further strengthening its production footprint in Asia Pacific with the start-up of a second production line for hexamethylene di-isocyanate (HDI) based polyisocyanates in Caojing, China. BASF has been operating an aliphatic isocyanates plant at the same site since 2006.

This wholly-owned BASF production plant will benefit from close proximity to raw material and largest market for aliphatic isocyanates in Asia. Its advanced production line will ensure safe and efficient operations, with t he flexibility to adapt to new customer requirements.

The new production line will focus on the production of biuret and isocyanurate under the BASF brand Basonat, for all transportation coating segments (Original Equipment Manufacturer, refinish and parts), industrial coatings and adhesives as well as serving the entire Asia Pacific region. This investment represents another milestone in BASF’s Asia Pacific strategy.

“The start-up of this second production line will enhance supply security and flexibility to meet the growing market demand for high performance resins. It will also enable us to make timely adjustments to our product portfolio, in response to the fast-changing market situation in Asia Pacific,” said Jeff Knight, Senior Vice President, Dispersions & Pigments, Asia Pacific, BASF.
