Coal Tar Pitch Innovations


Coal Tar Pitch Innovations

At Himadri we have consistently demonstrated our technical expertise and unwavering dedication to staying ahead of the curve. Himadri’s Coal Tar Division stands at the forefront of cutting-edge innovation, and our commitment to pushing the boundaries of excellence is evident through our robust Research and Development (R&D) efforts. We have harnessed the power of R&D tools such as pilot reactors and distillation units to revolutionize the landscape of customer-centric new product development.
Our new product development portfolio in CTP Division now includes Solvent Oil, 2-6-Lutidine, Phenol, O–Cresol, MP Cresol, Indene, Quinoline, Flourene, Carbozole, Anthraquinone & PCM.

Solvent Oil

Solvent oil is produced from intermediate oil of Coal Tar distillation process. It has various applications in paint industry and is used as inhouse solvent for Speciality oil production


It is a colorless liquid with mildly basic properties and a pungent, noxious odor. It is used as Non-nucleophile base in organic synthesis and formation of silyl ethers.


In India, there is a huge demand of Phenol for manufacturing of PhenolFormaldehyde Resin which is used for Plywood Industries.

O– Cresol

It is used as an intermediate for the production of dyes, pesticides, epoxy resins and pharmaceuticals, and is also used as a component of disinfectants and cleaning agents.

M P Cresol

Meta Para Cresol is used in phenolic resins photoresists, phosphate esters, wire enamel solvents, surfactants, disinfectants and also used in fibre preservatives, wood preservatives and other chemical intermediates.


Indene is an aromatic, polycyclic hydrocarbon occurring from coal-tar fractions boiling around 175–185°C. Indene is colorless, although samples often are pale yellow. The principal industrial use of indene is in the production of indene/coumarone thermoplastic resins used in electrical wire coatings


Quinoline is used in the preparation of hydroxyquinoline sulfate (a key ingredient in topical antiseptics) and niacin (Vit-B3). It is also used in the manufacture of dyes, as a solvent for resins & terpenes and in the production of other specialty chemicals


Fluoreneis a white crystalline substance with a violet fluorescence. It has a characteristic, aromatic odor similar to naphthalene. Flourene is used to manufacture of pesticides, agro-chemicals, dyes and plastics


Carbazole and its related compounds find versatile applications, chiefly serving as key components in fluorescence, phosphorescence, and thermally activated delayed fluorescence materials, enhancing the performance of electronic devices like OLEDs. Additionally, these compounds are utilized in high molecular applications, showcasing their significance in both small and large-scale material innovations across industries.


Anthraquinone is an aromatic organic compound. It is a yellow, highly crystalline solid, poorly soluble in water but soluble in hot organic solvents. Anthracene is efficiently converted into anthraquinone (L) by oxidation with chromic anhydride in acetic acid. Anthraquinone is manufactured extensively in this way for use as an intermediate in the manufacture of dyestuffs

Pitch Creosote Mixture(PCM)

PCM is a shiny, dark brown to black residue, which contains polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and their methyl and polymethyl derivatives, as well as heteronuclear compounds. It is used in making refractory material, industrial paints and as corrosion resistant coating for underground pipelines. Our R&D Grades of PCM includes –

Grade Description
SP02 Low viscous tar - used for making refractory composite.
SP03 Special tar formulation - used for refractory clay making in high dimension furnace
SP08 Medium viscous tar - used by refractory & foundry by chemicals manufacturers
SP08A Medium viscous tar - used as an anti-corrosive paint application for coating and industrial insulation
SP09 Special tar formulation - used for carbon and graphite manufacturing.
SP10 Medium viscous tar - used as an anti-corrosive paint application for coating manufacturing
SP11 Medium viscous tar (an auxiliary of SP10) – used as an excellent surface coating to prevent corrosion from saline environment
SP12 High viscous tar – used as binder in special refractory manufacturing
