AKRON, Ohio – June 12, 2018 – A. Schulman Inc. (Nasdaq-GS: SHLM), a leading international supplier of
high-performance plastic compounds is now expanding its polyethylene based range of specialty powders with Icorene® 9106.
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.
Icorene® 9106 is one of the rare rotomolding grades on 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.
“The new grade provides molders with more options to meet safer and more sustainable requirements in a variety of markets”, comments Les Druyf Product Line Manager. “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.

AKRON, Ohio – December 5, 2017 – A. Schulman Inc. (Nasdaq-GS: SHLM), a leading international supplier of
high-performance plastic compounds highlights its established series of electrically neutral heat stabilized Schulamid® polyamides with less than 30 ppm of halogen content.
Most electronic modules fail because of corroded contacts in integrated circuits. This contact corrosion occurs when two metals with different electrochemical potentials are conductively connected by an electrolyte (e.g. water or humid air). Electric neutral (EN) environments are therefore a must in many different markets.
Halogens, like Iodide or Bromine, are suspected to facilitate electrical corrosion and they must therefore be kept at low levels. Generally, 100ppm are seen as an acceptable value in plastic compounds which still allows to reach electrically neutral properties.
New automotive electrical designs, which are smaller, more complex and /or work at higher voltage, call now for even lower halogen levels. Current market discussions seem to establish 30 – 50 ppm as the new level for more demanding applications.
