Icon, based in Retford, UK, designs and manufactures custom, highly-engineered polymer components, including engine seals, fabric-reinforced seals, hoses and rubber-to-metal bonding solutions for the aerospace and defence end-markets. Icon products are used on a wide range of aerospace platforms, including all Airbus aerospace platforms, Lockheed Martin F-35 and Bombardier Global 7000.
