Research & Development

Since its inception, SRI has been maintaining its status as an independent, self-supporting contract research organization. It has been recognized as a pioneer contributor to Indian industry through its technologically innovative applied research approach.

Over the years, the R&D activities of SRI have been expanded covering different array of materials. The present activities of research involve:

  • Development of product, process and technology
  • Improvements in the existing product and process
  • Scale up studies to take up development work from lab scale to commercial scale
  • Cost effective measures either by suggesting alternative route or process of manufacturing of a particular product
  • Rendering technical help in preparation of product, application and safety data sheet for capturing market
  • Providing opinion report (third party / for excise purpose) on the existing product as well as process
  • Product differentiation etc.
  • Trouble shooting problems in industrial production / process
  • Development and improvisation of formulations

The areas in which R&D is being actively pursued involve various materials such as synthetic and natural polymers, composite materials, nanocomposites, optical polymers, fluoropolymers, strategic materials, biomedical polymers, health care materials, waste utilization, green materials
