PCL Starts Trial Production of Purasil Performance Silica

Karachi, November 28, 2017

Karachi. Maqsood Elahi, president and chief executive officer of Pak Chromical Limited, (PCL) and Bilal Elahi, Director from the Executive Board joined by members of the staff and local officials gathered to celebrate the successful kick off of PCL’s premier silica brand Purasil.

"Initially we will be concentrating on Purasil PS200 and 300 series, hydrophobic silicas. We will continue to iron out kinks, work on our processes and procedures prior to full scale production. “ said Bilal Elahi.

Silica are small particles based on silicon dioxide. Depending on the surface structure, they have a significant influence on the final product characteristics. Production is strongly technology-driven and thus ensures intensive and lasting customer relationships. The manufacturing process is independent from oil-based raw materials and therefore well-suited to PCL’s sustainable business strategy

PCL is one of the largest family-owned businesses in Pakistan currently producing household detergents and associated products. It was founded in 1992 by Maqsood Elahi, who led the largest tannery in Pakistan during the 1960’s and 70’s. Today, the company has a broad product portfolio ranging from detergent fillers, foam boosters to organic Shampoo Base (SLES).
