BASF builds amines plant in China

17 April 2014

BASF has announced it will build a world scale production plant to manufacture speciality amines at its existing wholly-owned site in the Nanjing Chemical Industry Park in China.
The plant, scheduled to come on stream in late 2015, will have dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA) and polyetheramines (PEA) as the main products and complements existing facilities in Germany and the USA for DMAPA and PEA. PEA is an intermediate chemical for epoxy curing agents used in the production of plastics, polyurea coatings, adhesives, reaction injection moulding and wind blade composites.

  • Meanwhile, BASF has broken ground on a resin and electrocoat (e-coat) plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park in Shanghai.
