ExxonMobil introduces new polymer grade for flexible packaging

ExxonMobil introduces new…

ExxonMobil will display a new Exceed XP performance polymers grade for high-performance coextrusion films, and recycle opportunities using Vistamaxx performance polymers, at its Arabplast 2019 booth #7C140. Major features of ExxonMobil's presence at Arabplast will include:

  • New Exceed XP 8784 is a new polyethylene grade offering improved processability combined with extreme film toughness and sealing properties for use in laminated sacks, freezer films, barrier packaging and sachets.
  • Innovative "Rethink Recycle" with Vistamaxx performance polymers - a proven, cost-effective solution that allows low-cost recycling, targeting high-value applications.

"Arabplast is a great opportunity to connect with customers about the challenges they are facing and discuss how we can help them innovate and grow," said David Hergenrether, ExxonMobil vice president, Polyethylene.

There will be many opportunities for visitors to discover ExxonMobil's product portfolio - Exceed XP, Exceed, Enable and Vistamaxx performance polymers and Oppera polymer modifiers. These products are used to add value in a range of sectors including flexible packaging, agricultural films, hygiene products, and industrial applications, as well as solutions that promote increased use of recycled polymers.

"The use of Vistamaxx to compatibilize waste PE and PP can be a game changer when recycling plastics as it reduces the need for costly and time-consuming materials separation," said Bhaskar Venkatraman, ExxonMobil vice president, Polypropylene, Vistamaxx and Adhesion. "It can increase the amount of recycled plastic used, while enhancing end-product performance."
