Specialty Powders Products

Rotational Molding & Custom Powders


Icorene is our registered trade mark representing our wide range of materials for rotomolding and technical powders. Icorene  powders are available in natural, black, standard colors, custom compounded colors and specialty stone and speckle effects.

Our standard range of General Purpose Linear Low Density Polyethylene grades is used to manufacture a wide range of typical rotomoldings such as tanks, drums, bins, pipe connectors, access chambers, lids, boats and more.

For more demanding applications, LyondellBasell supplies High Performance Hexene or Hexene mPE powders that can outperform butene based LLDPE.

Many molders take their powders as custom matched pre-colored or standard colors in order to ensure good batch to batch consistency.

In addition to our regular materials, LyondellBasell also supplies other specific polyolefin powder products that fulfill the demands of certain roto products, these include:

  • High Density PE with X linking agents for extended flex fatigue resistance, higher vicat and ultra-low temperature toughness.
  • Flexible PE grades that shrink less than standard PE and react differently to external stress
  • High Stiffness PE grades with impact modifiers for a combination of toughness and rigidity
  • Polypropylene grades for higher temperature, hardness and scratch resistance than HDPE and LLDPE
  • Specialty grades are availalbe for demanding applications in all regions. 

Icorene Technical powders are mainly but not limited in natural.

We offer a wide range of particle sizes, melt flow, density as well as different polyolefins such as PP, PE, EVA, HIPS, GIPS.

Powder grades are used in rotolining and rotomolding and also are applied by electrostatic spray or fluid-bed coating methods.


A family of products developed specifically for the rotational molder, Polyaxis compounds are designed to offer optimum properties in color matched or standard color formulations. These products exhibit a wide range of physical properties providing the rotational molder a selection of compounds to meet the most demanding applications. Polyaxis grades are used in a myriad of products from canoes and kayaks to flame retardant furniture and are available as standard grades or can be designed to meet specific requirements. All of these compounds are fully stabilized, contain long-term UV packages and meet stringent quality control procedures.


Schulink is a cross-linkable polyethylene formulated by LyondellBasell for the rotational molding industry. Available in two different formulations and in a wide variety of colors, Schulink products can be found in applications ranging from marine fuel tanks to color-coordinated industrial doors. Schulink offers UV resistance, ease of processing and an excellent balance of physical properties.

Toll Processing Services

Whether we are producing our own line of Icorene compounded polyethylene colors for rotational molding, or providing toll grinding services on your specific formulations, LyondellBasell has a range of flexible processing options to suit your needs.

LyondellBasell's integrated compounding and grinding systems are most efficient at producing Icorene rotational molding grade powders, but in addition, our range of extruder designs, and feeder, palletizing, and packaging capabilities throughout the world.

We can take a development project from the laboratory to pilot scale to production sized runs, and have the quality control, color measurement, and material analysis equipment needed to support the operations.
