ICL Innovation seeks a cost effective synergist as an alternative to Antimony Trioxide to deliver halogen in the gas phase from plastic composites during combustion
As the field of flame retardants evolves, so is the need for better and more cost effective synergists. ATO has served for years as the major synergist for Halogen based FRs. Current fluctuations in price, and the ongoing need for innovation dictate the need to develop alternatives. As a leading FR producer, with particular strength in Halogen based ones, ICL seeks to replace the ATO with an equally effective, yet price effective material.
The proposal would need to clearly describe the technical concept (chemical approach, structure if IP protected) and proof of concept results, if available. Information on ICL's current product line can be found in the ICL-IP Flame Retardants web page.
As a technology incubator, ICL Innovation is looking only for innovative technologies that may be further developed and commercialized through a business unit in ICL.
