DOW inks deal with Israel Chemicals for bromine-based FR for thermal construction insulation application

30-Jan-12
Israel has signed a deal with American chemistry giant Dow Chemical to begin using its innovative Bromine-based flame retardant polymer, which is used in foam insulation applications that are needed for thermal insulation in construction, as per ynetnews.com. The polymer, FR122P, was developed by Dow Chemical's subsidiary, Dow Global Technologies. ICL will market the polymer through its subsidiary, ICL Industrial Products. The latter supplies one-third of world demand for bromine, and according the ICL, the new agreement will enable it to better deal with the growing competition in the bromine market. CL plans to construct a new plant with estimated capacity of up to 10,000 tpa of FR122P, to be operational by 2014, for which it is exploring a number of potential locations for the plant, including Israel and Holland.
