Gharda Plans New Plant for PEEK

Gharda Plastics, the high performance engineering polymers division of Gharda Chemicals Limited, launched its speciality lubricious solution for industrial and business appliances, incorporating various reinforcements in G-PAEK and Gazole grades. This collaborative development with other industrial partners is aimed at applications that require very high wear resistance. The G-PAEK product family is based on Poly Ether Ketone (PEK) and Gazole – representing freshly commercialized thermoplastic alloys of PEK and Poly benzimidazole (PBI).

The company has been researching the new grades for the last few years, and has been producing some of them in pilot or semi-commercial volumes at an existing Gharda petrochemical plant in Ankleshwar, in the state of Gujarat, 250 kilometers north of Mumbai

Now Mumbai-based Gharda Chemicals Ltd. plans to open a commercial scale plant in Panoli India for making specialized engineering resins polyetherketone, polyetheretherketone and polybenzimidazole, using what it says is a new production method. The company will decide final capacity and investment details later this year, and is aiming for an April 2015 startup for the new facility in Panoli, India.

When the new plant in Panoli opens it will also make the monomers the firm uses, and the company believes it can manufacture the three polymers cheaper in India.
