Exxon Mobil: New range of mLLDPE extrusion coating resins

ExxonMobil Chemical Co., USA, has introduced the first of a new family of very low-density linear polyethylenes produced with its Exxpol metallocene technology for extrusion coating and laminating. These new Exxco products are said to have “plastomer-like” properties and to significantly outperform conventional extrusion- coating resins in sealing ease (194 F seal initiation), hot-tack and seal strength, tear strength, puncture resistance, and adhesion to OPP film.Recommended uses involve blending with about 20% LDPE or EVA for coating paper and paperboard. The initial grade, Exxco 012 has 0.912 g/cc density and 12 MI.
