ICD America distributes and markets a wide range of commodity and engineering resins. Main market segments are in food packaging, consumer and industrial packaging, household items. automotive industry, constructions, and medical application. We serve a diverse range of converters in terms of consumption, type of resin and application.
Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic made from the monomer ethylene. It was the first grade of polyethylene, produced in 1933 by Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) using a high pressure process via free radical polymerization. Its manufacture employs the same method today.
Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) resins are used in film, molding, compounding, applications.
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) resins are used a wide range of application: blow, injection, and rotational molding IBCs and storage tanks; crates and pallets; pails and lids; automotive components; bottles and caps; toys Additionally, HDPE resins are utilized in extrusion film applications such as grocery, garbage, and deep-freezer bags, high pressure pipes, corrugated pipes
Polystyrene also is made into a foam material, called expanded polystyrene (EPS) or extruded polystyrene (XPS), which is valued for its insulating and cushioning properties. Foam polystyrene is very light and is widely used to make home and appliance insulation, lightweight protective packaging, surfboards, foodservice and food packaging, automobile parts, roadway and road bank stabilization systems and more.
PP are used for injection and compression molding, film and fiber extrusion, and thermoforming. PP Random copolymer are used in application where enhanced optical properties, impact resistance and flexibility are required in many consumers, medical and film application
We can offer a wide range of PET resins with IV values ranging 0.76-0.85, suitable to manufacture bottles for water, carbonated drinks (3-5 lt), small-package edible oil bottles, liquor bottles, medicine bottles food packaging and PET sheets.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, often abbreviated as ABS, is an engineering thermoplastic widely used in electronic housings, auto parts, consumer products, pipe fittings, toys. It can be used both for injection and extrusion applications
Engineering plastics are a group of plastic materials that have better mechanical and/or thermal properties. It can effectively replace metals or ceramics. These products can provide alternative in implementation of new technical applications and a key component for innovation.
Synthetic rubber is any artificial elastomer. They are polymers synthesized from petroleum byproducts. Synthetic rubber, just like natural rubber, has many uses in the automotive industry for tires, door and window profiles, seals such as O-rings and gaskets, hoses, belts, matting, and flooring
TDI 80/20 is used in the production of flexible polyurethane foam and other polyurethane applications including elastomers, synthetic leather, coated fabrics, paints and adhesives.
Polyol is used slabstock foams, waterproofing coatings, mattress, furniture and packing materials and can be used to produce moderate and high-density foams.
