ExxonMobil Chemical: Broad Polymer Portfolio and Global Capability at K2004

ExxonMobil Chemical will present its broad range of polyethylene (HD, LD and LLD), specialty copolymers, ethylene elastomers and metallocene catalyzed products as well as its technology, supply and service capability in Hall 6, Stand Number D11 at K 2004 in Duesseldorf, Germany.
Within the Polyethylene business, the first in the new family of Nexxstar resin formulations will be featured. Reshaping end-of-line packaging, novel Nexxstar resin formulated stretch hood packaging solutions represent a major step change within the industry. Additionally, new grades will be highlighted, most notably two new low gel grades for Exceed mLLDPE which are ideal for high quality lamination and converter film, a new PE resin for medium voltage wire and cable insulation and a new PE resin for wire and cable applications.
ExxonMobil Chemical will also demonstrate that it has one of the broadest complementary portfolios of ethylene elastomer products in the industry including Vistalon EPDM, metallocene-based EPDM, Exxelor CMP, Exact plastomers and Vistamaxx specialty elastomers and Santoprene TPVs. In particular, Vistamaxx specialty elastomers are a “new to the world” novel polyolefin family of products and are tailored to enhance a broad range of products and processes. With a new metallocene ethylene elastomer plant, the organization will demonstrate its state-of-the-art technology, flexible multi-product platform and global supply. Other features at K 2004 will be:
• non-woven and film applications for Vistamaxx specialty elastomers
• new low density grades of Exact plastomers
• Vistalon EPDM with conventional EPDM produced by Ziegler Natta technology and a new generation of metallocene-based products
• Exxelor CMP – polypropylene modified through compatibilization with glass and natural fiber fill PP compounds and wood fiber composites
• Very soft engineered TPVs, low lead TPV grades and new developments in foaming technology will highlight the numerous innovative solutions utilizing Santoprene thermoplastic rubber, while additional Santoprene TPV successes will be illustrated by more than 50 automotive, consumer and industrial applications on display
In the Polypropylene sector, ExxonMobil Chemical will focus on new products in the context of its total-solutions approach to help add value through innovative solutions. The company will demonstrate its long-term experience in demanding applications such as appliance, automotive, health care, nonwovens, OPP film and packaging. An outstanding example on the stand will show the benefits of this approach in the innovative-engineered Exxtral™ PP solutions recently unveiled in the new Peugeot 407.
The company will also emphasize its strong track record as a leader in metallocene polypropylene (mpp) technology and the ongoing broadening of its Achieve mpp product line to offer additional options.
Another new development to be on display that benefits European packaging manufacturers is ExxonMobil PP5122E1. This resin is a clear alternative for sheet and thermoforming applications that offers the solution of high transparency.
Other innovative solutions to be described include work with molders in the U.S. to take a fresh look at the advantages polypropylene can offer in injection stretch blow molding applications. Recent studies show ExxonMobil PP9505E1 can offer new flexibility in balancing the attributes of stiffness, heat resistance, clarity, organoleptics, cost and processability.
Solutions offered through the company’s polypropylene presence in Asia and the Middle East will also be discussed.
