HOUSTON—ExxonMobil Chemical Co. displayed its new Exceed XP 8784 performance polymer grade for high-performance coextrusion films at its Arabplast 2019 booth.
Exceed XP 8784, a new polyethylene grade, offers improved processability combined with extreme film toughness and sealing properties for laminated sacks, freezer films, barrier packaging and sachets, according to an ExxonMobil release.
The company also showed recycle opportunities using its Vistamaxx performance polymer, which allows low-cost recycling, targeting high-value applications, ExxonMobil said.
Both 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 company said.
Vistamaxx can be used to compatibilize waste polyethylene and polypropylene when recycling plastics, as it reduces the need for materials separation, said Bhaskar Venkatraman, vice president, polypropylene, Vistamaxx and adhesion. It can increase the amount of recycled plastic used while enhancing end-product product performance.
