ExxonMobil Releases New Performance Polyethylene Grades
September 04, 2021

ExxonMobil unveiled a new series of its Exceed XP performance Polyethylene (PE) grades that deliver mechanical performance with a combination of low density and fractional melt index (MI). The company said its new Exceed XP 7021 and Exceed XP 7052 offers the value chain a combination of attributes that is currently not available in a single resin, which includes high levels of elasticity and holding force, puncture energy (up to 2.3 J/mil) and dart impact resistance (up to 900 gm on a 25.4 micron film).

ExxonMobil also said its research and tests indicate the new grades also offer a combination of fractional MI and low density (0.911- 0.912 g/cm³) that is not available in the market, making films with enhanced bubble stability and creating opportunities to increase output for converters. The new grades have also been designed to help enable converters to create innovative new films for stretch hood packaging, collation shrink, primary packaging, and greenhouse applications.

"We are currently working closely with our value chain partners to develop film formulation solutions that many in the industry believe would only happen in the future but which, through collaboration, we are making possible today," said Michael Vinck, ExxonMobil's Global Polyethylene New Products Marketing Manager. "

For Linkedin: ExxonMobil said its new Exceed XP Polyethylene grades were designed to offer levels of performance that enable converters to create innovative new films for stretch hood packaging, collation shrink, primary packaging, and greenhouse applications.
