Our Health, Hygiene & Essential Products

We have a diversified portfolio. Majority of our products are key to water treatment, disinfection, cleaning and sanitization. Moreover, there are also essential inputs to food, pharmaceuticals, agriculture and allied sectors required regularly for basic living. These essential products typically range from chlorine & chlorine derivatives to phosphates, peroxides, sulphites and agro-inputs. Key areas where we serve to maintain health, hygiene and safety are across Water Treatment, Disinfectant and Sanitization, Aquaculture and Cleaning Products on one hand and Food, Pharmaceuticals and Agriculture inputs on the other hand.

Disinfection And Sanitizing

Water Treatment

Chlorine, Sodium Hypochlorite, Stable Bleaching Powder, salts of Aluminium with chlorine are known to be amongst the best for water disinfection, best suited in times of health and safety crisis to mankind and need for higher level of disinfection and hygiene. Our key brands LION, SHAKTIMAN and RENSA are effective in killing disease causing pathogens such as bacteria, virus and protozoans. VIKRAM, with poly aluminium chloride as an active ingredient act as coagulant in water purification. VYTAL is for complete water treatment solution, best suited and safe for drinking water, especially in times of health and safety crisis. BIRLASULF (salt of sodium) acts as an antichlor in water treatment.

Surface Disinfectant and Sanitization

Chlorine, Stable Bleaching Powder, Sodium Hypochlorite and Poly Aluminium Chloride due to their properties of disinfection and sanitization is being considered for preventing spread of COVID-19, to be used across surface cleaning, sanitizing or cleaning of artificial water bodies. Our brand RENSA can disinfect swimming pools. LION, SHAKTIMAN, VIKRAM, VYTAL with products containing microbicidal properties are used for effective killing of pathogens and use on most surfaces. DUROX®, a surface sanitizer, with Hydrogen Peroxide as active ingredient is deemed effective against spreading of Covid-19. TETRAMATE and COMBIMATE, with peracetic acid, is used as a sanitizer in food packaging industry while BIROX, MULTI-5, MULTI-100 and CLARITY act as versatile antioxidant and antimicrobial agent across food, medical and pharmaceutical industries.

Aquaculture

AQUA ARMOR® helps in disinfecting water in reservoir and growth pond in shrimp farming and also has a product with calcium mineral supplement needed during shrimp farming. Products with hydrogen peroxide as active ingredient is added to growth pond and those with sulphite ingredient is used during harvesting (sometimes as antichlor). Shrimp processing is dependent on PEARL® as a moisture retention agent to preserve colour, texture, flavor and nutrients.

Cleaning Products

Caustic Soda is a critical ingredient in making soaps, detergents etc., Sodium Hypochlorite is used for making sprays and cleansers for germs and products with Phosphoric Acid is used as water softeners in case of laundry washes.

Food And Pharmacetuicals

Food

Processed Food, fit to be consumed, requires chemical constituents that add to and retain food value. We have a range of products for food industry with calcium phosphate for bakery and health food supplements, phosphoric acid based products for edible oil refining and sugar or jaggery manufacturing, hydrogen for edible oils, hydrogen chloride in food additives, sugar and brewery industries and products having chlorine to control bacteria and odour in food industry. OXYFRESH and OXYWHITE, with hydrogen peroxide as active ingredient, are used as starch for food industry and sugar whitener. Brands to retain food value include CORINO® (cheese manufacturing), GUSTO® (meat processing), PEARL® (seafood processing) and DELICE® (bakery products), mainly functional food phosphate based. VINTAGE (salts of sodium and potassium) act as oxidant, enzyme inhibitor, and anti-microbial agent and is also used in wine and beer industry. Use of BIRLASULF, BIRLA SOL and DUROX® is wide spread in food industry. TETRAMATE and COMBIMATE, our brands with hydrogen peroxide as key ingredient and BIROX, MULTI-100 and CLARITY with peracetic acid as key are widely used during aseptic packaging of food, juice & dairy products, poultry & aquaculture processing alongside food contact surfaces and equipment sanitization.

Pharmaceuticals

Our products with chlorine derivatives & caustic soda are used in pharmaceutical products & antiseptics. The products with hydrochloric acid are used for controlling pH of pharmaceutical products, salts of aluminium & chlorine are used as a catalyst and our product range of sulphites are used for vitamins and pharmaceutical intermediates. DUROX® and MULTI-5 with hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid as active ingredients respectively are used for sanitization of pharmaceutical industry, hospitals, medical facility and also in the sanitization of medical equipment (e.g. dialysis machines, ICU etc.).

Agriculture

We enrich Agriculture produce through our brands BIRLA SHAKTIMAN OORJA and VARDAN. While the essential and primary is soil protection products (e.g. neem-coated Urea, customized and organic fertilisers), a host of seed, plant health and crop protection products of fungicides, insecticides and herbicides all aid to enhance the productivity across a diverse range of crops.
