ICL-IP expands in flame retardant market

Published January 25, 2012
ICL Industrial Products (ICL-IP), one of the three strategic operating segments of ICL, has signed a licensing agreement with Dow Global Technologies LLC, a subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, for its polymeric flame retardant technology. Dow’s technology will be used for the launch of FR122P, ICL-IP’s next-generation brominated polymeric flame retardant for use by the building industry in extruded polystyrene (XPS) and expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam insulation products. The company expects to begin supplying commercial quantities beginning in 2014, and is currently supplying pilot quantities as required to its customers.

FR122P is a sustainable, polymeric replacement for the flame retardants currently used in EPS/XPS insulation foams. Pilot tests conducted by ICL IP’s customers have confirmed that FR122P delivers the required level of fire safety to their products. 

ICL-IP recently began work on a new 10,000 metric ton capacity manufacturing plant. The company's flame retardant portfolio includes a growing number of sustainable polymeric products, including the FR1025P, brominated epoxy polymers and the Polyquel product line as well as the new FR122P.
