BASF – India’s chemical production complex at Dahej, Gujarat – commenced operations in October 2014.
At approximately INR10bn ($180m), it is the biggest investment made by BASF in India. The complex is located at the 453km² Dahej Petroleum, Chemicals and Petrochemicals Investment Region (PCPIR). The chemical complex integrates polyurethane manufacturing facilities, as well as production facilities for care chemicals and polymer dispersions to cater to the growing appliances, footwear, automotive, construction, coatings, paper and home and personal care industries.
The Dahej area is highly corrosive due to its coastal location and industrial belt. Due to severe corrosion failures especially for buried pipes, the client wanted a fool-proof system which will protect the new fire water lines from any external elements.
A consultation with the site head and engineering team was organised, where a demo was provided along with an overview of our products and services. Once the client could see how easy it was to implement, the system (which consisted of Denso Paste™, Densyl™ Tape, Densopol 60HT™ Tape) was approved for all pipes.
