ICL IP Increases Production of Polymeric Flame Retardants

ICL, Tel-Aviv, Israel, a global specialty minerals company, announced that its ICL Industrial Products segment (ICL IP) is progressing as planned with the project to increase its production capacity of FR-122P, itss polymeric flame retardant (FR) to replace the HBCD FR which is currently the standard used in EPS/XPS insulation foams and which under EU regulations is to be phased out by August 2015.

ICL IP produces commercial quantities of FR-122P at its plant in the Netherlands, and is currently completing preparations to start up a 10,000MT production facility in Israel whose commencement is scheduled for the third quarter of 2014.

ICL IP’s investment in production capacities resulted from the growing market awareness and positive feedback it obtained for its FR-122P product following extensive testing and evaluation processes conducted by potential customers during the past several years. ICL IP expects a ramp up in commercial sales during the second half of 2014. Industry tests have confirmed FR-122P’s suitability for use in the full range of EPS and XPS insulation foams. ICL IP has the potential to further increase production capacity for FR-122P in a relatively short period of time in the event of further market demand.

ICL IP’s production of FR-122P derives from the European Union’s ban on the use of HBCD, which will take effect in August 2015. To this end, in January 2012 Bromine Compounds Limited (ICL IP) signed a licensing agreement with Dow Global Technologies LLC for the manufacture of FR-122P.
