Commenting on the collaboration Mr. Nihar Chheda, VP, Prince Pipes and Fittings Limited, said, “We are delighted to associate with Lubrizol once again. Prince Pipes is not about creating products that are different but providing solutions that make a difference. We have driven change in the industry by replacing conventional products, with high-performance user-friendly solutions. The Indian Industrial piping market has huge potential of ~INR. 160 billion. This is today dominated by the conventional MSRL pipes and low adoption of CPVC, which is majorly used only for domestic applications. Whereas globally, Corzan® CPVC pipes are well accepted for Industrial applications. This association strengthens Prince Pipes’ portfolio of existing range of industrial solutions. Prince OneFit with Corzan® CPVC Technology will solve corrosion issues while decreasing the downtime enabling continuous production. This reflects our strong intent to continue to drive high-impact change for higher value creation.”
