3. What is the difference between JH829 and phthalates?

JH829 is not a phthalate but a cyclohexanoate and a non-aromatic plasticizer with a completely different structure (three-dimensional ring) belonging to a different chemical structural class. The maximum residual concentration of phthalates in the current product specification is 0.01% and BASF conducts constant lab analytics and pre-loading inspections to deliver high quality products to our customers.


4. What makes JH829 a preferred plasticizer for toy manufacturing?

JH829 is an intensively researched product. BASF conducted numerous tests to demonstrate that JH829 has an excellent toxicological profile. Evaluations of the studies and risk assessments by competent authorities conclude that there is no risk associated to exposure from toys made with JH829.


5. Can JH829 substitute other plasticizers in toy manufacturing?

JH829 can be processed on existing machinery, requiring only minor adjustments in formulation and process parameters. It can be used in the common PVC production processes. Good rotomoldability and lower viscosity than other alternatives like Terephthalates (DOTP) or Citrates (ATBC) make it stand out.


6. Do toys made with JH829 comply with regulations globally?

CE-marked toys have been available on the market for over a decade. The toxicological profile and extensive risk assessments have led to worldwide approvals. Toys made with JH829 can fulfill the requirements of the following regulations:

– EU Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH): No further risk measures needed

– EU Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC

– EU Toy Standards EN 71-3, EN 71-5, EN 71-9
