Research and Development

The state of the art Baerlocher Research and Innovation Centre (BRIC) is instrumental in developing new products for emerging applications as well as providing solutions to our customers. It is one of the few centres conducting research in polymer additives within the Baerlocher group, and probably the only research centre involved in domestic polymer additive related R & D work having the prestigious DSIR (Department of Scientific & Industrial research, Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India) recognition.

The centre consists of most modern and hi-tech chemical synthesis laboratory and an application development set up. The chemical synthesis laboratory develops new product formulations and various additive applications. The latest facilities including FTIR spectrophotometer help in establishing type and composition of new raw materials used for stabilizer production and thus assists in chemical synthesis and formulations of new products.

The product application set up - equipped with sophisticated facilities including torque rheometer, twin roll mill, thermotester, extruder with melt pressure and melt temperature sensors - helps our qualified scientists simulating both processing conditions and actual field application of Baerlocher products. BRIC also has the most modern equipment for testing various performance properties including mechanical, thermal and electrical characteristics.

The scientists at BRIC, evaluate product performance as well as develop new products in line with Global trends and also meeting customers’ specific requirements.


Baerlocher Research & Innovation Centre (BRIC, DSIR Approved R&D Facility) is located at BIA's manufacturing plant in Dewas, M.P. and is the only centre of its kind in the PVC additive business in the Indian subcontinent.

BRIC is responsible for most of major product breakthroughs in the past.

BRIC's objective is to enhance research & development activity and deliver significant benefits to the polymer industry in India and includes Long-term research focused on creating
