Performance Polymers Portfolio for Food & Liquid Packaging: ExxonMobil at CHINAPLAS

Published on 2017-05-18. Author : SpecialChem

SHANGHAI -- ExxonMobil and Jinming Machinery (Guangdong) Co., Ltd. are collaborating during CHINAPLAS to demonstrate how the combination of Exceed™ XP, Exceed and Enable™ performance polymers and coextrusion blown film technology is being used to produce differentiated liquid and food lamination packaging solutions. The films are being demonstrated at the Jinming Open House, while details of the film formulations are available on their booth (8.1A21).

Packaging Solutions for Specific Needs

Oliver Lorge, global market development manager, ExxonMobil Chemical, said:
“Film converters are always looking for ways to produce effective, quality films that offer high-performance packaging solutions for the protection of liquid and food products. Our portfolio of performance polymers combined with quality equipment allows the development of solutions to meet the specific needs of different applications.”

3-layer Liquid Lamination Film

  • The 3-layer liquid lamination film, which includes Exceed XP — when eXtreme Performance matters, offers the toughness, flex-crack resistance and sealing performance to deliver extreme performance. 
  • This helps to eliminate product leakage and contamination, protecting and preserving liquid products from packaging to utilization which can result in less waste throughout the supply chain. 
  • The film also provides a good stiffness and toughness balance with very low extractables. 
  • Typical liquid packaging applications include: bag-in-box bladder; pillow and stand-up pouch; and flexi-tank container-liners.

4-layer Cast Polyethylene Film

  • The 4-layer cast polyethylene film, which includes Exceed and Enable, provides the mechanical, sealing and optical properties for the fabrication of high-performance food lamination packaging.
  • It also offers good processability and high throughput. 
  • Typical food lamination packaging applications include: frozen foods (potato products and vegetables); dry foods (coffee, tea, pre-mixed beverages, confections and pet food); and greasy or oily foods (prepared meat, fish and cheese).
