The Indian Polyurethane Industry is a rapidly developing industry, which has enrolled double-digit development in five years and is expected to double every four years in the coming decade. Polyurethanes cater to a wide range of market segments. Shakun Industries operates by blending polyurethane raw materials to manufacture polyol systems for the rigid polyurethane industry. Headquartered in Haryana, Shakun Industries offers CFC free blended polyol systems for insulation applications such as insulated sandwich puf panels in cold rooms/portacabins, refrigeration in refrigerators and trucks, insulated pipe/ block/slab sections, and insulation of solar water heaters/geysers.
Shakun Industries, currently, is among the top 5 polyurethane chemical companies in India. The organization caters to the rigid polyurethane industry, correctly, that caters to all the thermal/sound insulation, buoyancy, and heavy load-bearing applications. The organization has the capacity to produce more than 300 MT per month. Several factors help the organization to differentiate its products. Technological advances, pricing strategy, and industry reputation are the key factors that give Shakun Industries an edge over other players in the market. With the current scenario, the company’s products are well differentiated in India in terms of technology exclusivity and quality standards.
Moreover, there are very few high-quality
substitutes (in the same price range) for the product, which again helps the company capture the market share every day. The organization has successfully employed cyclopentane in the polyol systems, which are comparatively safer to use as perceived otherwise. The company ensures that products are tested before going to market and has strategically priced the products to differentiate their value proposition.

Shakun Industries have multiple chemical reactors to help and maintain the capacity levels of 300 MT/ month. Each reactor kettle is made up of high-grade stainless steel in and out. This avoids any discoloration of the chemicals produced. The organization is also equipped with underground tanks to tackle chemicals that require high-pressure vessel storage under average room temperatures. All the equipment is thermally insulated for maintaining safety standards at the workplace. The organization has an R & D team that is always focused and determined to innovate or discover unexplored areas.
