Rubber Lining Division

MIL the country's leader in corrosion and abrasion resistant rubber linings for more than four and half decades. Set up in collaboration with Societe Chimique de Gerland, France and subsequent technical know-how from OHJI Rubber & Chemicals Co. Japan. India's largest and most modern rubber lining facility, MIL has been supplying the entire range of rubber and other elastomer linings for both standard and highly specialized process equipment.

MIL has, over the years, successfully executed numerous challenging projects for various process industries. A review of MIL's list of prestigious clients, the nature and size of jobs undertaken both in India and abroad - a number of which have been repeat orders - is testimony to the confidence reposed in MIL by Indian and overseas clients.

Vulcanization Technique

MIL employs two of the largest autoclaves in the country for vulcanizing factory-lined equipment. The Cold Bond Technique pioneered by MIL in India has been accepted as the most suited for site lining of large storage tanks, particularly under tropical conditions.
