Penetrating aid for asphalt cement
ICL Innovation, a technology incubator for the ICL group, seeks novel material based solutions to increase the penetration of aggregates into asphalt cement.
- Material based
- Low cost
- Easy application
Asphalt cements could fall short in meeting the penetration specification and this has been identified as an unmet need in the industry. We are searching for a material based solution to enable adjustments in penetration without significantly impacting other asphalt specifications. As a leading manufacturer of phosphates, phosphoric acid and specialties, ICL Performance Products is committed to innovative research spanning diverse applications. Advanced Additives, a business unit in ICL PP is currently expanding into two major markets: Paint and Coatings, and Asphalt.
Our research and development laboratories in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia are staffed with industry experts and state of the art analytical and application equipment. Utilizing R&D best practices we have developed many patented technologies, proprietary products/processes and new applications. We are dedicated to a culture of learning and keep abreast of market and research trends via customer partnerships, academic collaboration and industry trade association participation.
- Full funding for selected technologies
- Analytical laboratories, pilot facilities and high level R&D teams based on ICL's central R&D institute and the various advanced additives R&D labs
- The Advanced Additives business in ICL Performance Products as an industrial commercialization partner
- Funded research
- Exclusive IP licensing
- Joint development
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 PP 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.
