POLİSAN KİMYA SANAYİİ A.Ş.

Polisan Kimya is operational in the area of production and sales of formaldehyde and formaldehyde resins, construction chemicals, and AUS 32.

POLISAN KIMYA IS TURKEY’S FIRST FORMALDEHYDE RESIN MANUFACTURER.

Polisan Kimya is Turkey’s first producer of formaldehyde, urea formaldehyde resins, melamine formaldehyde resins, and phenol formaldehyde resins, used as intermediate material for particle board industry.

The areas of use for resin are production of paper impregnation, chip board, MDF, and plywood, wood paving, parquet – parquet laminate, sanding industry, casting industry, insulation – isolation industry, flower foam resin, and waterproof chipboard, MDF and plywood. The areas of use for urea formaldehyde concentrate (UFC) are urea formaldehyde resins, melamine urea formaldehyde resins, and the urea industry. The areas of use for formaldehyde are the production of synthetic resin, synthesis of chemical substances, agriculture and stockbreeding, sugar factories, production of cleaning materials, and cosmetic industry.

Bitlis Family brought in the technology to produce chip board, MDF, plywood, formica resins, fiber glass, rock wool resins, melamine used in paper impregnation, urea, and phenol formaldehyde resins for the first time in Turkey. Polisan Kimya’s first facility has been established in Kağıthane in 1968.

In 1977, Polisan Kimya has moved its facilities operating in Kağıthane to Dilovası where it is still carrying out its activities, due to the need for increasing capacity and easy access to raw material sources.

Polisan Kimya is ranked the second with a 31% share in the Turkish Formaldehyde resins market.

POLISAN KIMYA IS THE LEADER OF THE CONCRETE ADDITIVES, FIBER GLASS, AND ROCK WOOL MARKET.

The products of the Polisan Yapı Kimyasalları are classified under 4 categories; namely, concrete additives, cement additives, epoxy ground coating systems, and repair and maintenance mortars. Polisan Kimya, operating in a 9-player (composed of 5 foreign and 4 domestic companies) construction chemicals market has more than 10% share. Polisan Kimya supplies 2/3 of the chemicals in the market particularly in the area of insulation (fiber glass and rock wool).

POLISAN KIMYA IS TURKEY’S FIRST ADBLUE©/AUS PRODUCER AND MARKET LEADER.

Adblue©/AUS 32, which can be used with German Automotive Foundation’s (Verband der Automobilindustrien) VdA license, is a chemical mixture, not toxic for the human health. AdBlue©, decreasing NOx exhaust gas emission by 80%, saves up to 4% in diesel consumption and contribute to a cleaner environment. Having adopted the environment protection and health criteria prioritized by EU that Turkey is on the way to be a member of, Polisan Kimya perceived the obligation of all OEM vehicle manufacturers to comply with Euro norms as an opportunity. Polisan Kimya received the Adblue©/AUS 32 license certified by VdA and became one of the most important manufacturers and sellers in the sector.

Within this context, having undersigned a first in Turkey and become the first AdBlue© manufacturer for the global giants such as Lukoil, BP, OVM, and Total, Polisan Kimya is the leader with a 30% share in the 70,000 ton Turkish market. The products in three different business lines and their annual capacities manufactured by Polisan Kimya, which widens its product portfolio with its professional work force and R&D investments, are as follows:

Production Capacity Tons/Year
Formaldehyde and Resins 120.000
Construction Chemicals 50.000
Adblue©/AUS 32 40.000

Exterior insulation of the buildings, now mandatory, is expected to increase demand for concrete additives while use of high technology vehicles is to generate higher demand for AdBlue. So that, the share of these two new business lines in total revenues is expected to increasingly grow in time.
