About us

From manufacturing Pyrazolone intermediates for Pigments, Acid dyes etc. to being a leading manufacturer of Solvent Dyes for Inks, Paints, Wood Stains, Plastics and Leather; we have been a pioneer in developing products for a diverse range of applications.

Prima Chemicals, located in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India was founded in 1976 by Mr. Kamlesh Modi for manufacturing Pyrazolones, which are specialty intermediates for Pigments and Acid dyes.

What began as a small unit designed for a 1 ton/month capacity is now the single largest manufacturer of 20 different Pyrazolones in the world. We have reached a manufacturing capacity of 1400 tons annually.

The requirement of Pyrazolones is catered to by two manufacturing units – Prima Chemicals and Polygon Chemicals.

Our strength is our knowledge, hard work and humble beginnings and hence we always opt for niche segments, where technical expertise and active management involvement is needed to carry out the production.

This led us to start manufacturing of a very specialized segment of Solvent Soluble metal-complex Solvent Dyes – Primasol Dyes in the year 2002 having applications for Paints, Enamels, Wood Coatings, Printing Inks, Foil Printing and Leather Topcoats. We are also manufacturing Solvent Black 29 as part of our Primasol Range and are proud to admit that we are the only manufacturer of Solvent Black 29 in India.

In 2003, further development led us to start manufacturing Polymer-soluble Solvent Dyes – Primaplast Dyes having applications for Masterbatches, Engineering Plastics and Manmade Fibres.

To cater to the continuous and ever-growing demand for our solvent dyes, we have started a new manufacturing unit-Prima Chemicals Unit-II located in the industrial area of Vatva, Ahmedabad.

In lieu of our inclination towards specialized dyestuff, last year we started manufacturing a new range of liquid solvent dyes – Primaliqe Liquid Dyes for leather and water-based wood stains.

Our wide and diverse range of products goes a long way in showing our technical expertise and our quality standards. We are now one of the leading manufacturers of Solvent Dyes in India.
