IPC – INNOVATIVE POLYMER COMPOUNDS is a specialist compounder of Medical Polymer Compounds. Its Medical Grade Engined Polymers are produced in its own manufacturing facility, based in Kilbeggan, County Westmeath close to its Irish customer base of Medical Device manufacturers.
Its modern manufacturing facilities allow for industry leading delivery times as well as flexible small lot batches. Set up in 2008 and certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 13485, IPC processes polymers from Arkema, Lubrizol, BASF, EMS, DuPont, Evonik and Solvay.
The company performs its own colour matching using a base range of FDA approved pigments which achieves tighter and more consistent colour tolerances as well as short lead times for coloured compounds to Pantone, Munsell or RAL references.
The company is a joint venture company between a polymer compounding company (Associated Plastics of Ireland Ltd) and a polymer and chemicals distribution company (National Chemical Company Ltd). Both companies are well established, each with over 30 years experience in the polymer industry.
