New Delhi, June 9 (ANI-NewsVoir): A research and innovation company involved in the field of Speciality Polymeric Additives and Phase Change Materials (PCMs) for thermal energy storage is proud to announce that its state of the art research laboratories are now DSIR recognized.

PLUSS is the only company in India manufacturing materials and solutions for storing heat at varied

temperatures. PLUSS' polymers laboratory is known for its specialty additives that help impart superior mechanical properties to polymers and plastics used in the automobile, white goods and wire and cable industries.

PLUSS operates with a simple yet crisp vision of 'Creating Impactful Innovations', said Samit Jain, Managing Director.

"Anything we do has to be new to the country and enable put PLUSS on the world innovation map", he added.

These laboratories of PLUSS saw several innovations come out of the company since inception. In 2003, it was recognized on Technology Day by the then Vice President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat for its innovative polymeric additives that provided a fillip to the automobile industry to switch from metals to plastics reducing automobile weight and increasing fuel efficiency.

Subsequently, the company worked on a variety of technologies. In 2012, the company received equity funding from Tata Capital Innovations Fund, to further its innovations. In the last three years the company has applied for over seven patents.
