During this pandemic, Elkay is taking every possible safety precaution for our employees,
suppliers and vendors to make a difference against COVID-19.
CII Pune, organised the seventh edition of West Tech Summit 2019 in Pune with various sessions focused on the theme ‘Driving Innovation through R&D’. This brainstorming summit focused on the way organisations should look at R&D and inculcate the spirit of innovation in industry. Over 100 delegates across the industry participated in the Summit and interacted with the experts from the industry. Event was limelighted with the presence of Mr. Sanjiv Bajaj, Mr. Shrikant Bapat, Mr. Rajan Navani, Dr. Ravi Kulkarni etc.
Dr. Ravi Kulkarni spoke about re-branding of Indian SME through innovation culture, where Dr. Ravi discussed about innovation in SME, challenges & opportunities.
We are extremely pleased to announce that, Elkay Silicones was awarded “Top Chemical Manufacturer (SME sector) 2019” &
Elkay participated in CPhI India, 2019, one of the most biggest and comprehensive pharmaceutical event of South-East Asia on 26-28 Nov. 2019. We thank to all the visitors who had shown their interest in performance silicone products. Visitors from different parts of world visited us and actively participated in knowledge sharing process.
At “CPhI 2019, India”, Elkay presented its entire range of silicone oil based pharmaceutical products and solutions with a wide range of applications in Pharmaceuticals, Personal Care & Medicament and other various customised applications. Visitors shown interest for Simethicone 30%, Simethicone USP, Dimethicone BP, Contraceptive fluids & other performance silicone products. More than 300 visitors and vendors visited our stall including our esteemed customers.
It was indeed a moment of pride for all of us as a family. Highly educated engineers after having trained and gotten work experience in US come back with a mission nearly 3 decades ago and later joined by their children to set up a project in unfriendly environment where entrepreneurship breeding is not a norm , is really commendable. Many talk about it but very few can really do it for many reasons.
Dr. Rahul Kulkarni, presented a technical paper on “silicone additives in oil filed applications” at Indian Oil & Gas Chemistry, Chemicals and Additives conference (IOGCA) Ahmadabad on 16-17 September 2019. The technical programme covered mainly crude oil characterization, demulsification, drilling fluid chemicals & additives, high temperature high pressure completion fluids, water chemistry, polymers for EOR and other surfactants used in oil & gas sector. Chemicals play a significant role in drilling, well completion, crude oil demulsification, effluent treatment, defoaming etc.
The unique chemical properties of silicones (surfactants, fluids, emulsions) such as low surface tension (20 dynes/cm), high temperature stability, inert and wide pH stability, bio compatibility and environmental friendly could be used in various applications where performance required and this haven’t achieved with conventional chemistry. Silicones are blanketed with -CH3 groups and with the flexibility of Si-O bond have exceptional mobility, low surface energy and surface active behaviour. It has high affinity to minerals, low affinity to asphaltenes, and almost no affinity to aliphatic. For the petrochemical industry, from drilling to refining to shipping – foaming leads to losses in efficiency, mechanical issues and fouling. Silicone foam control solutions allow foam control in multiple places in petrochemical units to increase productivity and save money.
Silicone demulsifiers are a relatively new type of chemical demulsifier which are driving efficiency. There have been several studies and tests done which show that silicone demulsifiers are efficient reagents both in pure form and as additives to organic systems. Silicone demulsifiers are not intended to replace organic demulsifiers. Instead, they should be blended together with organic demulsifiers. Typically, such a blend contains between 2 and 5% of a silicone demulsifier. These new organic/silicone formulations have synergies in demulsification of various crude oils.
Elkay actively works with its customers to help you with your silicone demulsifier, low temperature demulsifier and silicone defoamer needs.
This two-day event created opportunities for discussing and sharing experiences in all aspects of chemistry and chemicals for industry professionals involved in solutions to oil filed problems through chemicals.

Clean water is a very much essential element for any manufacturing unit. In case of un-availability, it can hamper production. To overcome on this issue and become self-dependent Elkay Chemicals Pvt. Ltd. put forward steps under the green building norms for rain water harvesting. By using a very cost effective method, we were able to collect water at the rate of 10 lit/min in moderate rain.
Tested TDS of collected water comes below 50 which is good quality of water & can be stored separately. This water is also used for other activities like sanitary, cleaning & planting.
Elkay participated in “Chemspec 2019, India” one of the well-known chemical expo in world on 16-17 April 2019. We thanks to all the visitors who had shown their interest in performance silicone products. Visitors from different parts of world visited us and actively participated in knowledge sharing process.
At “Chemspec 2019, India”, Elkay presented it’s entire range of silicone products and solutions with a wide range of applications in Construction, Petrochemicals, Textiles, Pharmaceuticals, Personal Care, Medicament, Agriculture, Rubber & Tyre, Chemical Process and other various customised applications. Customers shown interest for silicone fluids, emulsions, defoamers, surfactants and other performance silicone products.
More than 450 visitors including our esteemed customers, fortune 500 customers and vendors visited our stall.
