ICO Polymers launch new antimicrobial range

ICO Polymers one of the world's leading suppliers to the polymer industry, now provide a range of rotational moulding polymer powders containing the Biomaster silver based antimicrobial additive, which they will launch at this year’s PDM.

Biomaster provides a release of silver ions on demand, which safely inhibit microbial growth. This controlled release of silver gives the product excellent anti-wash characteristics and provides maximum long-term antimicrobial activity.

ICO staff will be available to discuss the possible applications of their antimicrobial powders throughout the exhibition.

With 18 locations in 9 countries, ICO Polymers produces custom polymer powders for rotational moulding and other polymers segments, including textiles, metal coatings and masterbatch.

ICO remains an industry leader in size reduction, compounding and other tolling services for plastic and non-plastic materials. ICO’s Bayshore Industrial subsidiary produces specialty compounds, concentrates and additives primarily for the plastic film industry.

ICO UK is based in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire and is part of ICO Europe.

*Please note that Addmaster was acquired by the Polygiene Group AB in January 2021, so all news articles prior to that date will still be branded as Addmaster.
