Shaheen offers a wide selection of minerals in its portfolio including calcium carbonate, talc and china clay etc. to enhance the properties of rubber products. Shaheen minerals plays an important role in rubber compounds for the production of a broad variety of end-based products such as tires, flooring, industrial goods, and cables with optimal processing and properties and a high-quality cost-performance stability. 

Improves the chemical dispersion in rubber application

The emerging trends in the rubber industry are difficult to handle and faces difficulty in the conversion of additives into chemical dispersion. Shaheen minerals enhance the dispersion of reinforcing fillers, reduce the gauge of inner liners of tires, reducing the mixing time and enhance fuel effectiveness. Shaheen minerals are no exemption to the process of constant enhancement in cost efficiency, effectiveness, competence, and supply chain optimization. Shaheen Calcium Carbonate to accomplish functionalities such as breathability, opacity, and printability. It is also used to produce polymers which are easier to process and compatible.

Enhancing the functionality of automotive components

Shaheen minerals used as multifunctional filler and help to meet up the rigorous design specification and fulfill the demand in automotive components. Shaheen minerals not only provide the impermeability of inner liner and are perfect solutions in the production of tires providing low rolling resistance.  Our minerals have excellent barrier properties to rubber compounds. Shaheen minerals are excellent solutions for improving mechanical performance in hoses. Talc is a tremendous option for eliminating bruising and iridescence in car body seals guaranteeing an enhanced long-term manifestation.  Shaheen talc is an outstanding anti-sticking agent in compound handling and processing.

Boosting the performance and durability in industrial applications

Shaheen minerals are important component for enhancing the performance in rubber-based products ranging from domestic appliances, cables, shoe soles to flooring and mattresses. Industrial flooring has to be a divergent to wear and tear, and should have outstanding non-slip properties that can tolerate heavy duty utilization without losing its properties. Industrial scale gaskets and seals are frequently injection-molded that are drastically malformed during production.  So Shaheen provides its mineral fillers which not only in cooperate in extrusion but also have outstanding hot tear resistance, improved chemical and thermal stability and compression set properties. Shaheen minerals are known for providing good surface finishing and flow in extruding process. Shaheen Calcium carbonate is used in rubber, PVC and polyurethane footwear as non-reinforcing diluents.

Exceptional insulation and enhanced properties in wires and cables

Shaheen minerals act as filler for enhancing the insulation and mechanical properties. Shaheen offers a wide variety of fillers to provide the chemical and physical properties in rubber cable sheathing and High compression set properties for Flexible cables. Shaheen kaolin is an outstanding choice for voltage cables which provides excellent insulation properties, low moisture absorption, excellent dimensional control, and very smooth surface finish.


“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)
