HTL sets up a Polymer Compounding Unit in Hosur

HTL Ltd. has established a state-of-the-art polymer compounding manufacturing facility at its Hosur plant in Tamil Nadu. This marks a backward integration for the telecom major as the polymers are required as raw materials in optical fibre cable (OFC) manufacturing.

With an installed production capacity of 24000 MT per annum, this backward integration will ensure seamless availability of Polyolefin-based compounds of various grades & colours as required for HFCL’s plants at Goa, Hyderabad & HTL Chennai.

The new facility would pave the way to improving their profitability since these polymers are a significant cost component in the production of optical fibre cables being supplied to domestic and export markets, the Company added.

The plant in Hosur already manufactures various necessary raw materials required for OFC such as Aramid/Kevlar Rods (ARP), Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Rods, and Impregnated Glass Fibre Reinforcement (IGFR).
