HOUSTON -- ExxonMobil has expanded its new Exceed™ XP performance polymers portfolio with two new grades – for when eXtreme Performance matters. The portfolio is being featured at the ExxonMobil booth (L71) at Feiplastic, Expo Center Norte, Sao Paulo, Brazil, April 3-7, 2017.

Exceed™ XP Performance Polymers Portfolio Expansion

Olivier Lorge, global performance polyethylene manager, ExxonMobil Chemical, said:
“Since Exceed XP was launched in April, it has been exceptionally well received in the market with customers reporting that these polymers provide an unprecedented level of performance. Customers in South America will be able to learn first-hand about the extreme performance they deliver and the value they can provide.”

Soft Shrink Packaging Films
Exceed XP performance polymers deliver exceptional performance advantages for film converters and end-users in a range of applications including:
  • Soft-shrink packaging film with the controlled holding force and toughness for high integrity wrap, overwrap and bundle packaging solutions that help brand owners protect delicate and irregularly-shaped products from manufacturer to end-use.

    • This includes food products like pizza, meat and cheese; delicate products including bathroom and kitchen tissues; and, irregularly-shaped products such as office supplies, stationery items, and air filters. Using Exceed XP, converters can enhance their business through new opportunities, more stable operations, and simplified formulations.

    • They can use existing extrusion equipment, including monolayer lines, for a market which previously required investment in new machinery.

  • Food packaging films, including pouches and bags with the extreme toughness and sealing performance that enable brand owners to protect frozen or dry foods, meat and cheese products from production to consumption.

    • The melt strength and toughness of Exceed XP provide film downgauging opportunities while performance is maintained.

    • The performance and processing capabilities of these Exceed XP grades allow converters to simplify product inventories, which can lower costs.

  • Liquid packaging including bag-in-box, pillow and stand-up pouches, and flexi-tank container liners.

    • Exceed XP produces exceptionally strong films, with excellent flex crack resistance and toughness that prevent product leakage and contamination, helping manufacturers and brand owners protect and preserve their products through to the consumer.

  • Building and construction liners to help builders protect their structures. Liners using Exceed XP inhibit water vapor penetration to reduce the risk of mold formation. 

  • Exceed XP for Extreme Performance Greenhouse Films

  • Greenhouse and large tunnel films with the toughness and strength to help farmers protect and grow their fruits, vegetables and flowers throughout the year.

    • Exceed XP allows converters to easily fabricate films which are typically 80-220 microns thick and up to 20 meters wide.

    • They can withstand the rigors of installation and varied environmental conditions including harsh weather over time. Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and non-EVA film formulations can be easily tailored for seasonal requirements and for special applications and climate conditions.

  • Thin agricultural films to wrap crops such as mulch and silage. The tough and tear-resistant films help farmers protect and preserve their crops and harvests.
