Chemicals & Minerals


We are the preferred suppliers of key chemicals and minerals used in making a wide variety of industrial and consumer products – to major international markets. These include Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM), mill scale, iron ores, fibreglass and e-glass. With an emphasis on delivering world-class value as our cornerstone, we employ advanced methodology, equipment, and facilities in our processes. This is combined with invaluable experience of our workforce and command over logistics and scalable infrastructure, making us highly reliable exporters of these key industrial ingredients.

VAM is used in making a specific barrier resin in food packaging, plastic bottles and gasoline tanks, as well as in engineering polymers. Most end-use markets for VAM are mature, with expected growth in its largest applications. Our cost-effective and fine-quality mill scale is also highly demanded in construction industry, steel plants, foundries, etc. This bluish black powder is composed of iron oxides and is ideal for use in blast furnaces. We also export high-grade processed iron ores, which are rocks and minerals from which metallic iron can be economically extracted. Usually rich in iron oxides, it is used to make pig iron, which is one of the main raw materials to make steel. Alloyed iron ore has a range of other applications across industries.

Products we deal in:


We export vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), an essential chemical building block which has a variety of applications in industrial and consumer products. It is a key ingredient in a wide array of products like polyvinyl acetate used to produce paints, adhesives and coatings for flexible substrates; polyvinyl alcohol used to produce adhesives, coatings and water soluble packaging films; polyvinyl acetals used to produce insulation for magnetic wire, interlayers for safety glass, wash primers and coatings; ethylene vinyl acetate copolymers used to produce flexible films, coatings, adhesives, mouldings and insulation; and ethylene vinyl alcohol is used to produce gas barrier layers in coextruded packaging.

VAM is also a precursor to polyvinyl acetate (PVA), a polymer widely used for making emulsion (latex) products – interior and exterior paints, adhesives, paper coatings, and textile treatments. An estimated 47% of VAM is used for making PVA, while 30% goes to making polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH), with the remaining 23% is used to make ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) polymers, ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) resins and polyvinyl butyral (PVB).

PVOH resins are used as textile warp sizing, as a protective colloid for PVAc adhesive products, as a polymerization aid in PVC polymerization suspensions, as a sizing for textile and paper products, and in making water-soluble films and fibers and helps make polyvinyl butyral (PVB) used in laminated safety glass in automobiles and buildings. Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) resins are used in manufacturing packaging film, heavy duty bags, extrusion coating, wire and cable jacketing, hot melt adhesives, and cross-linked foam. Ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) resins are used as gas barrier in layered food packages, and as a barrier layer in automobile oil tanks.

Mill Scale

Mill scale is a thin layer of brownish or black material formed on outer surface of plates, sheets or profiles when they are being produced by rolling red hot iron or steel billets in rolling or steel mills. Mill scale is composed of iron oxides and is bluish black in color. It is usually less than a millimetre thick and initially adheres to the steel surface and protects it from atmospheric corrosion – providing a safe secure coating for a limited period of time.
On exposing to the atmosphere, mill scale cracks and falls down as powder. Steel millers use a range of processes to control the final output of their steel – this impacts the quality of mill scale which varies across mills. This is why we collaborate with mills which have the most advanced equipment and facilities and can supply the best grade mill scale for export.


Iron Ore

Iron is the most used metal on the planet and its principle ores include Hematite (70% iron) and Magnetite (72 % iron).

It is estimated that there are 800 billion tons of iron ore resources worldwide and the largest iron ore producing nations are Russia, Brazil, China, Australia, India and the USA. We source our high-quality iron ore from the top mining companies in India, which have access to mines with substantial resource base of superior quality iron ore – high iron content and bulk density. This means that our buyers benefit by getting a relatively high amount of iron, and even safer, sustainable steel if required.

 Iron ore used as raw material to make pig iron, which in turn is one of the main raw materials to make steel. Raw iron by itself is not strong or hard enough for construction and other purposes. So, it is alloyed with a variety of elements (tungsten, manganese, nickel, vanadium or chromium) to strengthen and harden it and make steel. This is useful for construction, automobiles, and other forms of transportation such as trucks, trains and train tracks. While the other uses for iron ore and iron are only a very small amount of the consumption, they provide excellent examples of the ingenuity and the multitude of uses that man can create from our natural resources.
