Pluss Polymers is a chemicals and polymers research and manufacturing company involved in the field of thermal energy storage and polymer processing aides. The company has been a pioneer in its field, being one of the first in the country to commercially manufacture functionalized polymers. This work began as early as in 1994, and since then the company has launched a wide range of novel products in the market, including additives for wood based composites, synthetic paper, and high MFI polypropylene among many others.
At present, the company has a gamut of products suitable to a very wide window of processing applications and applicable to an equally large number of polymers. Pluss Polymers has also developed indigenous methods of producing not just 1st generation performance polymers, but has also contributed effectively in the area of polymer recycling, introducing ways to recycle polymers and still retain superior qualities in them.
The company also bears the distinction of pioneering Phase Change Materials (PCMs). PCMs are products that by the process of melting/solidification, act as a mode of storage of thermal energy, and are extremely utile in their service as heat/cold batteries. Due to their unusual nature, these products find scope in numerous applications, such as back-ups for air conditioning/temperature controls, peak-load shedding of HVAC utilities, storing waste and excess energy and more recently in storage of solar energy.
