ICL Innovation, a technology incubator for ICL, seeks novel non halogenated flame retardants for use in polyamides and polyesters
ICL Industrial Products (ICL-IP), the industrial chemicals division of Israel Chemicals Limited, is a leader in the production and marketing of bromine and bromine compounds, and phosphorus-based compounds which are a fundamental component of many products that enhance well-being and, ultimately, save lives.
With a heritage dating back to the early 20th Century, ICL has maintained an unwavering focus on innovation, striving to achieve the highest standards across all aspects of our business. Our market-leading phosphorus-based flame retardants, plasticizers, lubricants and hydraulic fluids, are produced in plants in the US, Germany and China. The Flame Retardant Business Unit takes an in-depth and long-term view of the plastic industry’s supply chain, so that its products and solutions are directly responsive to each market segment’s special needs and challenges. We continuously study and monitor the requirements and trends of these market segments, including those of supporting industries, which enables us to offer a valuable contribution to our customers by meeting their current needs and future requirements.
ICL-IP also offers the world’s most comprehensive range of phosphorus-based flame retardants, fire resistant plasticizers and hydraulic fluids for high demanding applications. Bromine-and Phosphorus-based flame retardants are considered to be the two most efficient flame retardant families, constituting approximately 55% (in value) of total flame retardant usage. ICL-IP’s portfolio also includes a few additional non-halogen and non-phosphorus based flame retardants such as high purity grades of Magnesium Hydroxide.
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.
