BASF Declares Force Majuere on TDI

July 24, 2020


Subject: Force Majeure


Dear Valued Customer:


On the week of July 20th, the BASF Geismar, LA TDI plant experienced an unexpected equipment failure which impacted our ability to operate the facility. As a result, BASF is declaring force majeure on TDI and TDI containing blends effective immediately.


We are actively working to make repairs and are taking all necessary steps to resume normal operations. Current projections indicate the production interruption will last at least two weeks. Your BASF account manager will be in contact with you to discuss the status of current and future orders. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this event and will keep you informed of progress.
