Icorene® 9106 for Rotomolding Applications
A. Schulman Inc. is now expanding its polyethylene based range of specialty powders with Icorene® 9106.

Halogen-free Flame Retardant PE Grade

The new product is fully compliant with the flame retardant standard UL94 V-0, but it does not only help mitigating fire danger and reducing speed of flame spread. Icorene® 9106 also increases safety for the molder and the end user by being halogen-free.

Rare Rotomolding Grades

Icorene® 9106 is one of the rare rotomolding grades in the market which meet both requirements. The material also offers a wide processing window and provides the same characteristics, properties and UL94 V-0 FR performance as conventional halogenated grades. To obtain a UL94 V0 rating, the material must meet stringent criteria with regards to after flame and afterglow time.

Les Druyf Product Line Manager commented:
“The new grade provides molders with more options to meet safer and more sustainable requirements in a variety of markets. Helping manufacturers meet their safety objectives, by developing this new product showcases A. Schulman’s concern for safety to its employees and also the customers’ workers”.

Icorene® 9106 is now available in off white. Other colors are being evaluated for certification.
