Plastic, PVC and Masterbatch

Shaheen offers a comprehensive selection of minerals including talc, kaolin, calcium carbonates to serve the current market of plastic, PVC and master batch. Shaheen is continuously adding value and providing solutions to boost up processes and enhance the properties of several polymer and engineered plastic applications. Shaheen minerals act as an additive in plastic injection molding, extrusion coating and blow molding etc. It allows the polymer to cool down faster which on the other hand increases the productivity. Shaheen mineral fillers provide remarkable breathability, impact strength, elongation at break and high degree of whiteness.

Improved properties in Rigid and biopolymer applications

Shaheen provides different grades of ground Calcium Carbonate having a special surface modification on to prevent polymer degradation during extrusion which also gives better elongation, impact strength in rigid polymers application. Shaheen minerals are ultimate reinforcing additives and nucleating agents in biopolymers where they improve stiffness, heat resistance and other mechanical properties, making them suitable for a much wider range of applications. They act as tremendous anti-blocking agents in bio-plastic films.

Process enhancement of Polyvinylchloride (PVC)


Shaheen is exceptionally positioned to assist the segment meet confrontations with our wide range of mineral solutions used in PVC applications. Shaheen provides fastest performance and substantial benefits in processing. The higher stiffness of Shaheen minerals allows reducing the wall thickness and therefore leads to material savings. Shaheen Calcium Carbonates are the benchmark for PVC profile. Shaheen minerals reduce the cost and provide excellent surface gloss, good processing even at high loadings. They are a tremendous reinforcement agent which maximizes mechanical properties in PVC building profiles and flooring. Its value in rigid applications is to improve stiffness and dimensional stability, and because of the improved thermal conductivity, faster cool down and efficiency of production increases. A PVC plastisol-based product contains Shaheen Calcium Carbonates to improve the product’s mechanical properties such as stiffness, ageing resistance and processing in addition to significant cost reductions.

Increased runnability and functionality in Sheet and pipe production

Shaheen minerals with their exceptional whiteness, increased stiffness, higher extruder output in sheet extrusion & thermoforming, good dispersion and low oil absorption are an excellent fleer for plastic sheet applications. Shaheen treated Calcium Carbonates extensively improve the stiffness of variety of polymers, allowing for considerable reduction in sheet gauge but the top load is maintained and therefore leading to optimized formulation costs. The high thermal conductivity of Shaheen Calcium Carbonates allows speeding up extrusion, sheet processing and thermoforming. Shaheen minerals with fine particle size and wide variety of high-quality surface treated and untreated Calcium Carbonate give good mechanical and optical properties with improved processing, increased ring stiffness and required toughness for pipes and fittings. Our variety of coated products ensures a brilliant dispersion in the polymer-based products and allows high mineral loadings which are the favored solution to accomplish material cost savings.

Excellent filler performance in master batch

Shaheen minerals are used to manufacture filler master batch. Masterbatch is well thought-out as input material for producing of different plastic products by injection molding technique, so it is widely used in the production of plastic accessories, parts, equipment, household products, etc. Masterbatch not only helps manufacturers reduce production costs but also enhanced the hardness, smoothness of surface and reduces reduction of the finished products. Shaheen treated and untreated calcium carbonate improves the product mechanical properties and also increases product ability, improves harsh conditions of productions in addition with improved number of physical and chemical properties of finished plastic products.


“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.” Warren G. Bennis

Mr. Chaudhry Iftikhar Bashir is the visionary leader who has always led the company through challenging times by putting in hard work and providing the key leadership Shaheen required to grow into the trusted brand it is today. With his interest vested in the industry, he started working part-time at the factory at a very early age during the late ’70s. Later he officially joined in 1980 and drove the company towards growth. Key clients such as Panther Tire, PVI/ATS Synthetic, Diamond Paints, and many others joined hands with him. Truly ambitious he visited UK, Germany, France, Spain, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, China, and Saudi Arabia many times to gain knowledge and expertise by participating in many exhibitions and collaborating with experts across the globe. 

His early achievements include setting up a Raymond Mill in Lahore, Pakistan by International Combustion Derbyshire, United Kingdom, and later ATP by Alpine Hosokawa, Germany.

Furthermore, initiated a Marble Mine in Muzaffarabad, Azad Jammu & Kashmir in 2007 and was the first one to start a coating mill for Calcium Carbonate in 2010. Shaheen Group is the major group of marble processing for various industries as Paints, Paper, Artificial Leather, Cables, and PVC Pipe industry. He has also received the Businessman of the Year Award in 2012. Ch. Iftikhar Bashir is the former Senior Vice Chairman of LTIA and former Chairman of Lahore Township Industries Association (LTIA). He is the President of the Pakistan Grinding Mills Association (PGMA). Former President Defense Raiwind Road Association Industrial Association (DRIBA) Former Board Member Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI)

Being a socially responsible individual, he is a member of MJF Lions Club and is a trustee of, “Subhan, the helper Trust” and a contributory member over various other platforms for which he was awarded another award of recognition by the President of Pakistan for his social work. Belonging to the Arain community he has made remarkable contributions on the platform anjuman-e-arain where he holds the status of senior vice president. Last but not least he is a Board Member Governor Punjab Social Welfare Committee (SWC) and amid his efforts, his name has been added on the wall of Covid-19 heroes in Governor House Lahore.

Mr. Haji Chaudhry Bashir Ahmad a true visionary, driven by his passion and determined towards his goal set up one of the earliest grinding mills in Lahore, Pakistan in 1966. He had his interest vested in chemicals since a young age which led him to develop constructive relationships with Chemistry and Geology professors from the University of Punjab. Equipped with the appropriate knowledge on minerals and fillers he visited the potential mines and educated the local community regarding the potential benefits in the initiation of mining minerals in Pakistan. Therefore, it is safe to say that he has played the role of Grand Father in the grinding industry. 

Mr. Haji Chaudhry Bashir Ahmad was inspired by the grand legendary poet Allama Muhammad Iqbal after meeting him (add hyperlink to google page of Allama Iqbal) and named the company after his truly motivating and influential poems regarding Shaheen. (Eagle)
