Sun Petrochemicals is an integrated chemical company that supplies several grades of acetylene carbon black for various applications in the chemical and electronic industries. The company is headquartered in Mumbai, India and our state of the art acetylene carbon black plant is based in Nagothane, Maharashtra, India. We produce acetylene black by the thermal decomposition of acetylene gas.

Sun Petrochemicals began in 1999 following a partnership with Indian Petrochemicals Corporation Limited (now owned by Reliance Industries Limited) to utilize their waste acetylene gas to produce acetylene carbon black.



ACETYLENE CARBON BLACKAcetylene Black finds uses in batteries, semi conductive rubber and polymer compounds, conductive tapes, curing bladders for tyres and other conductive applications.

Our acetylene black is manufactured from the purest form of feed stock acetylene gas. The highly automated process and instrumentation at our plant offers consistent end product without variation. Our product shows higher absorption and excellent electrical and thermal conductivity values.

Our in house Quality Assurance and Quality Control center ensures purity of the raw material and quality and consistency of the finished product.

We have a separate R&D wing involved in constant up-gradation of product characteristics to meet customer requirements.
