1 - Blow Molding Plastic Products 

Region: Sindh
Investment Size: PKR Between 1-2 Million

Plastic is a common name for Polymers: materials made of long strings of carbon and other elements. Each unit in a string is called a monomer, and is a chemical usually derived from oil. There are many different types of plastic, depending on the starting monomer selected, the length of polymer chains, and the type of modifying compounds added. Each plastic is developed for a special purpose. However the varied use of plastic in our everyday life has made it an integral component in almost everything. Plastic is used in everyday items like ballpoint pen, buckets, cups, glasses, water pipes, plastic bags to items of engineering excellence like cars and airplanes. According to some experts, around 350 kilograms plastic is used in every car manufactured in Germany. With such a high ratio of usage in developed countries, plastic has become a cheap but an important commodity. Most of the plastic products are manufactured using two types of technologies. Blow molding and injection molding. The proposed project envisages the setup of a blow molding products manufacturing business. The setup will produce plastic products i.e. tumblers, bottles, canes, drums, water coolers etc. The manufactured products will then be sold in the local market to generate revenue.

2 - Pet Bottles Manufacturing Unit 

Region: Punjab
Investment Size: PKR Between 10-20 Million

PET bottles are a packaging medium, made up of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET). These are widely used in food grade packaging and are the preferred packaging medium in this segment, due to their several advantages over other resins like PE, HDPE and PVE.1 The objective of this pre-feasibility study is to provide information for setting up a PET bottles manufacturing unit. Proposed location for this project is Lahore.

3 - PPRC Pipes Manufacturing Unit 

Region: Punjab
Investment Size: PKR Between 10-20 Million

The proposed project entails setting up of a PPRC Pipe manufacturing Unit, which has a product range of 25mm, 32mm and 40mm. PPRC Plumbing system is used for under ground hot and cold water supply system, made up of Poly Propylene Random Copolymer (PPRC). PPRC pipe is almost non-reactive with most of the Chemicals and this plumbing system is durable for the supply of certain chemicals and gasses as well. The proposed unit is capable of producing quality products, which can be sold in the local market as well as in the foreign market. The objective of this pre-feasibility study is to provide information for setting up a PPRC pipes manufacturing unit.

4 - UPVC Pipes Manufacturing Unit 

Region: Punjab
Investment Size: PKR Between 20-50 Million

Un Plasticized Polyvinyl Chloride (abbreviated as UPVC) was first developed in the 1930's and came to be used in pressure pipelines from the 1950's, firstly in Europe, followed by the United States and then Australia in the 1960's. The product has now developed to a mature status with known and respected performance history in pipeline applications. UPVC is a low maintenance material. It is used in the agriculture, chemical and construction industry. It is available in a variety of colors and finishes. The photo-effect wood finish of unplasticised polyvinylchloride is also used in window frames and window sills as a substitute for painted wood.

5 - Woven Polypropylene Sacks 

Region: Sindh
Investment Size: PKR Between 1-2 Million

Polypropylene woven sacks manufacturing units import polypropylene granules, convert it into tape yarn and this tape yarn is woven on an automatic loom to produce polypropylene cloth. The average weight of a bag is 100 grams. Polypropylene sacks are used to store and transport industrial and agricultural products like animal feeds, fertilizers, salt, cement, sugar, millet, dyes, pigments, maize, sorghum, plastic granules, rice, flours, pulses, polymers etc. Polypropylene sacks are usually suitable for packing most of the goods that have been traditionally packed in jute bags
