Silica Powder

The Silicon Chip which has emerged as a boon to the Electronic Industry, prompted us in setting up an exclusive factory for manufacturing High Purity Silica Power for catering distinctly to Global semi-conductor market. M/s. Chettinad MB-F Hi Silica Limited a JOINT VENTURE company with M/s. Morimura Brothers, Japan and Fukushima Yoghyo also of Japan, was established in 1991, started its manufacturing activity in 1993. Plant is located at 25kms from Chennai, India. It is a 100% Export Oriented Unit, equipped with dedicated manufacturing lines having the latest Japanese Technology to produce High Purity Silica Powder exceptionally for the Electronic Industry.

High Purity Silica Powder produced from naturally available pure quartz is processed into micronised powder with particle sizes of various micron sizes, as required by the customer. After expansion the current production capacity can supply 3500 tones per month.

Raw Material
The company sources the quartz material from its own resources of more than 90 mines with profuse reserves and also from approved private mine owners which would last for more than two decades, spread all over Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh to comply with the production demand / capacity at any point time
