“Establishing a reputation of a reliable manufacturer of products is not an easy matter for any company that renders its services. It was not easy back in the nineties and now. But as is well known it is even more difficult to hold the leading position, therefore, your achievements are always the result of the team work. I would like to point out the professionalism of all companies that have won the awards today, and you also do a lot for strengthening the competitiveness and development of your industries” – the Prime Minister emphasized in his opening speech.
This is the second prize of Government of the Russian Federation for Nizhnekamskneftekhim in the field of quality and services, the first one was presented in 2008. The Company has quite a few “gold” awards of international specialized exhibitions and the federal and republican contests “100 best products” for high quality rubber and plastics.
It has come to our knowledge that commercial offers of Nizhnekamskneftekhim's synthetic rubber may have been sent to certain parties on behalf of "Carbon Quimico SA" signed by the Executive Director Viktor Shirokovskikh. We would like to warn that such offers should be treated with extreme caution.
Please also note that any possible offers of Nizhnekamskneftekhim's synthetic rubber via "Carbon Quimico SA" are baseless as there are no contractual or any other relations between PJSC "Nizhnekamskneftekhim" and aforementioned company.

As part of the import substitution program, the coagulating agent GOHA-8 produced by OOO Khimprodmarket (Naberezhnye Chelny) was successfully introduced in the process of filtered water production by the Water Supply, Sewage and Waste Water Treatment Department of OAO Nizhnekamskneftekhim.
On former occasions, aluminum polychloride (PAC-04) produced in PRC was used for water treatment on the water pump station. Laboratory and pilot-scale tests that have been carried out by the personnel of R&D Center and the Water Supply Department have shown high efficiency of the domestic coagulant: filtered water quality complies with the plan of analytical control.
Specialists of the Department for Chemical and HC Feed Supply estimate that the economic effect will be about 7 million rubles.
On August 14, 2014, the millionth ton of polyethylene was produced at the polyolefins plant of OAO Nizhnekamskneftekhim since its commissioning.
The first polyethylene was produced at this plant on February 3, 2009. Spherilene cascade gas phase technology of LyondellBasell (Italy) is used in Nizhnekamsk that is unique in the domestic practice and is intended for designed for production of granular polyethylene both black and natural colors.
Out of 55 grades of polyethylene as per the License Agreement, production of 34 grades has been organized at the plant to date, two of them are of pigmented type. The following grades are of the highest demand: РЕ 6148С, РЕ 6948С and РЕ 6949С that are used for production of film and pipes, and РЕ5118QM, PE5118Q and РР5122РМ - for production of stretch film.
Polyethylene of OAO Nizhnekamskneftekhim is of a long-term thermal stability and is resistant to thermal-oxidative degradation both in the course of the production process and in its subsequent processing, and when using the manufactured articles.
97 % of Nizhnekamsk polyethylene is sold in the domestic market, the rest is exported.
In August OAO Nizhnekamskneftekhim intends to produce the maximum amount of propylene block copolymers (over 10,000 tons) as compared to other months of the year. The increase is attributable to higher demand for unique grades and regular activities of the company towards reduction of homopolymers production.
The following grades are among propylene block copolymers produced by the company:
- РР8348SM – used for production of rigid packing by high speed injection molding;
- РР9240К, РР9240М, РР9240N, РР9240Р – block copolymers with increased impact strength and frost resistance;
- РР8332М, РР8300N, РР8400N – for production of injection articles at high plant capacity;
- РР8300G, РР8400G – used for compounding and production of extrusion parts with high quality requirements;
- РР7445LM – for production of lids and caps with high degree of resilience, and the sophisticated and multicomponent structure.
In July 2014 representatives of Bridgestone and Pirelli conducted the second party audit at OAO Nizhnekamskneftekhim. The auditors visited butyl and synthetic rubber plants, research and technology center, quality control department and chemical raw materials department, they familiarized themselves with the state of affairs in the sales department and in the quality management system subdivision of the technical department.
In the course of the meetings with specialists and the company management, the prospects of cooperation and commercial terms of supply were also discussed. It was noted that many consumers of our products rely on the supplier’s passport without any incoming control, trusting the quality of rubber produced by OAO Nizhnekamskneftehim.
By results of the audit, the quality management system was highly appreciated whose main objectives are fulfillment of the customers requirements, increase of sales and the company’s profile raising.
We remind that the main strategic consumers of Nizhnekamsk rubber are the leaders of the global tire market such as Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone, Continental.
Early July, within the framework of the import substitution program and in order to raise its product competitiveness, OAO Nizhnekamskneftekhim organized production of the next new polypropylene grade РР4445T.
РР4445T is a random ethylene propylene copolymer with a target melt flow index of 60 g/10 min. The new grade is of high transparency (enhanced optical properties). Application of the product is high-speed thin-walled molding of food and technical packing.
As is known, for a long period of time OAO Nizhnekamskneftekhim has been producing a well-proven grade РР4445S with a target melt flow index of 40 g/10 min that substituted many imported equivalent products of famous companies, such as LyondellBasell, Borealis, Sabic, Braskem, Ineos, Honam Petrochemical etc.
Since recently, the processors have been requesting to explore the possibility of increasing the target melt flow index of ethylene-containing polypropylene grades to ensure reduction of the processing cycle time and increase of capacity.
Therefore, it was necessary to organize production of a new product grade similar to the imported grade PP QR 675K produced by Sabic with effective name Qrystal, i.e. “high transparent” that is favorably compared with products of other competitors.
OAO Nizhnekamskneftekhim was successful in developing the product that is equivalent to PP QR 675K. Investigations showed that PP 4445T polypropylene has improved optical, organoleptical and physical mechanical properties equal to those of imported equivalent products.
