Reliance Industries Ltd and Sibur have forged a partnership to seize the opportunities within the robustly growing synthetic rubber industry. This has led to the formation of Reliance Sibur Elastomers Private Limited, a joint venture wherein Reliance holds 74.9 % stake and SIBUR owns 25.1%. This joint venture is going to set up South Asia’s first butyl and halogenated butyl rubber production facility at Jamnagar, India with a world scale capacity of 120,000 metric tonnes per annum. Butyl Rubber is known for its excellent air retention characteristics, apart from very good weather, heat and chemical resistance properties in comparison to other general purpose rubbers. These attributes make it first choice of polymer for several critical products like Automotive Inner Tubes, Tyre Curing Bladders and Air Bags, Cable Insulation, Rubber Sheets, Pharmaceutical Closures, Ball Bladders, Sealants, Roofing Membranes, Condenser packing, Printing Rolls, and Acid Tank Linings etc. A Special grade of this rubber could even be used for Chewing Gums. Its unique molecular structure possesses greater delayed elastic response and it’s this damping and shock absorption attribute is being utilized in automotive suspension assembly. Key ingredient required to manufacture Butyl Rubber (IIR) and Halogenated butyl Rubber (HIIR) at our upcoming plant in Jamnagar is High Purity iso-Butylene (HPIB). This HPIB supplies are available from Reliance’s refinery that currently processes 62 million metric tonnes of oil per year. The integration of our world-class refinery to our upcoming IIR and HIIR plant, will ensure an uninterrupted supply of elastomers from RSEPL.
