Research & Development

Shiva has grown into a multi-specialty chemical company primarily due to a strong R&D focus and ability to successfully develop customized solutions for a global customer base.

In addition to the R&D and a full fledged pilot plant (from 50 liter – 1KL reactor sizes, devolatilizers, underwater pelletizers etc), Shiva performance materials also uses a unique lab scale pilot plant (20 liter) capable of high temperature/high pressure reactions and simulating commercial plant conditions.

The performance materials division is equipped with all specialized polymer characterization apparatus such as DSC, HPLC, GC (with headspace for measuring VOC content), Viscometers, Tensile strength measurement, FTIR, MFI tester etc.

  • DSC : For measuring glass transition temperature
  • GPC : For measuring molecular weight
  • MFI : For measuring melt flow index
  • GC : For measuring purity of solvent & monomers & residual solvent
  • Viscometer : For measuring viscosity of Emulsion, Solution & Polymer Product
  • Headspace : For measuring VOC
