Chemplast Sanmar Limited, the flagship company of the Sanmar Group, was originally incorporated on March 13, 1985 as Urethanes India Limited. Chemicals and Plastics India Limited (CPIL), was amalgamated with UIL with effect from October 1, 1991 and its name was changed from ‘Urethanes India Limited’ to ‘Chemicals and Plastics India Limited’ with effect from May 15, 1992. The name of the Company was further changed to Chemplast Sanmar Limited with effect from September 28,1995.
Chemplast’s product range falls into six distinct groups PVC Resins, Caustic Soda/ Chlorine, Chlorinated Solvents, Refrigerant Gases, Silicon Wafers and Trubore Piping Systems.
The company’s main businesses are - PVC, Chlorochemicals and Piping Systems. The synthesis that underlies the polymer chemistry of PVC manufacture is also reflective of the company’s approach to business. The basic feedstock for its PVC plant, ethylene and chlorine, come from its industrial alcohol plant at Panruti and its own chloralkali facilities at Mettur and Karaikal. The petrochemical company, Chemplast Sanmar, is the pioneering manufacture unit producing Paste Grade Resins in India. Moreover, after applying the advanced technological knowledge from ICI of the United Kingdom, it has also become the sole manufacturer of Battery Separator Grade Resins and Copolymer Suspension Resins. It is also the largest producer of chloromethanes in India.
In pursuit of its forward integration strategy, the company has re-entered the PVC pipes business. The manufacturing facilities located at Ponneri near Chennai has a capacity of around 25,000 tonnes per annum of a wide variety of pipes such as pressure pipes, casing and screen pipes, SWR pipes, plumbing pipes and conduits. The piping systems are well-known in the market for high quality under the brand name 'Trubore'.
In April 1995, Metkem Sillicon Limited (MSL), the company’s wholly owned subsidiary which was engaged in the manufacture of silicon wafers was merged with the Company pursuant to the Scheme of Amalgamation approved by the High Court of Madras vide its Order dated December 22,1995.
The Chlorochemicals Division of Chemplast, itself the result of backward integration by the group, manufactures a wide range of products using a highly integrated manufacturing process. These downstream products are either chlorine derivatives or chlorine users in the production process. The salt needed for chlorine manufacture is supplied by Chemplast’s own salt fields at Vedaranyam.
The electrolysis process of manufacturing chlorine, is power-intensive, but Chemplast is fully equipped to generate sufficient captive power to meet its entire requirements.
All this makes Chemplast one of the most integrated chemical plants in the country with a closed manufacturing loop.
The manufacturing facilities of the company are located at Mettur, Panruti and Ponneri in Tamil Nadu and Karaikal in the Union Territory of Pondicherry.
The PVC operations of Chemplast began in May 1967 at Mettur, with technology from B F Goodrich, USA. to manufacture a variety of high quality PVC Resin products having a wide range of end use applications.
Besides speciality Battery Separator Resins and two grades of Copolymer Resins, the company also manufactures 5 grades of Suspension Resins and 3 grades of Paste (dispersion) Resins.
Chemplast Sanmar pioneered the manufacture of Paste Grade Resins in India. It is also the only manufacturer of Battery Separator Grade Resins (made with technical knowhow from ICI, UK) and Copolymer Suspension Resins in India.
