Efficient Production of Films

Olivier Lorge, global market development manager, ExxonMobil Chemical, said:
“Film converters are always looking for ways to efficiently produce high-quality films and this combination of performance polymers and quality equipment delivers a solution that meets those needs. Using Exceed and Vistamaxx enables the production of a stretch hood film that not only offers effective product protection, but creates opportunities for high packaging line speeds and the potential to reduce costs.”

Benefits of Stretch Hood Packaging

The film offers the seal strength and hot-tack, tears and puncture resistance, as well as the ability to tailor the holding force to deliver economic benefits and improved protection for palletized goods. Providing secure load stability during transportation from the factory floor to retail outlets and homes, this stretch hood packaging solution can reduce the amount of damaged and returned goods.

The high clarity of the film promotes effective brand visibility in retail outlets, easy bar code reading and excellent quality control.


Stretch hood films are well-suited for palletized applications that include beverages, packaged food and bottled goods, household appliances, building products packed in bags like sand, cement, packaging materials, and paper.
