GSFC sets sights on Nylon-6 fibres export

Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals Ltd (GSFC) is exploring global markets for exporting for its Nylon-6 fibres Gujcon-CRF and Gujcon-PRF.

"GSFC aims to leverage opportunities in construction and infrastructure sectors in India and overseas markets. We are exploring opportunities of export of these products to African countries, Gulf countries including UAE and Dubai, Sri Lanka, Canada,” GSFC Chairman and Managing Director Sudeep Kumar Nanda said.

GSFC claims Gujcon-CRF and Gujcon-PRF increase the strength and durability of structures. Just 100 gm of Gujcon CRF and PRF per 50 kg bag of cement will enhance the strength of the structure. It will also help in the reduction of plastic shrinkage, cracks and reduction of water permeability.

At the product launch in Hyderabad, Nanda, said “Just like human beings, buildings should also have immunity to fight cracks, leakage and other problems. Our Gujcon products will bring new revolution in buildings as well as road infrastructure by providing secondary reinforcement in all construction applications,” he said.

A small quantity of the fibres, when added to cement for secondary reinforcement, increases the serviceability, durability and life of the structures by preventing shrinkage cracks and water seepage and by enhancing performance properties such as resistance to wear and tear, impact, shock, load, abrasion, he added.

Nanda said the company which recently exporting its first consignment of Nylon-6 to Myanmar, is gearing up to harness this field of opportunities by offering high-quality patented products. India is the third country after the US and Belgium to have such products.

GSFC also signed an MoU recently with Mahatma Gandhi Labour Institute (MGLI) Ahmedabad, for setting up a National Institute for Skill Development and Entrepreneur ship at the GSFC university. (SH)
