ExxonMobil Chemical polymers for packaging industry

In this article Fournier Polymers presents ExxonMobil Chemical offer for packaging industry, which provides unique solutions to keep, secure and publicize the product in every situation from the factory to store shelves.

New lighter-weight packaging materials, allow ExxonMobil Chemical to improve packaging products specifications while preserving sustainability.  

Applications

Bags and sacks

ExxonMobil Chemical performance polymers allow a high-speed production of medium- to heavy-duty bags and Sacks that can achieve an extremely damage resistance. The main applications for these products are food packaging, lawn and garden produce, fertilizers and resins.

Shoppers, liners and trash bags

Performance polymers allow reducing the thickness of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) shopping and garbage bag films without changing product strength.

Containers, cups and tubs

Performance polymers provide accessible and efficient solutions for a wide range of rigid packaging applications, such as food containers, cups and tubs. Besides, common applications include thermoformed packaging, thin-wall injection-molded (TWIM) containers and rotomolded containers.

Some key benefits of performance polymers are impact resistance, flexibility, clarity, reduced stress whitening and process streamlining.

Caps, seals and closures

ExxonMobil Chemical polypropylene resins furnish stiffness, toughness, impact, clarity, cleanliness, colour, protection, shelf life extension, low gel and a faster processing to the final product.

ExxonMobil Chemical supplies a large range of polypropylene resins which provide high-performance plastic packaging solutions for applications like packaging caps, seals and closures for the beverage industry, sealant and coating, etc.

Collation shrink packaging

ExxonMobil Chemical supplies optimized solutions combining an excellent packaging integrity with clarity and gloss to improve its brand promotion and protect the products like beverages, bottled water and soda, hand soaps and detergents, health and beauty aids and newspaper and magazine bundles.

Some of its benefits are toughness, strength, high holding force, downgauging opportunities, excellent reliability on high-speed packaging lines and potential to reduce paperboard.

Compression packaging

High integrity packaging films for products like baby diapers, training pants, adult incontinence products, feminine hygiene products and insulation bags. These films help to protect and preserve goods through the value chain with extremely damage-resistant compression packaging that can withstand the most demanding stresses. In addition, this application has some other benefits such as downgauging opportunities of up to 26 percent, toughness, stiffness, optical properties and simplified formulations.

Flexible food packaging

In order to ensure protection and preserve the integrity of consumer food products such as cheeses, meats, breads and vegetables, ExxonMobil Chemical provides extremely damage-resistant flexible food packaging solutions that can withstand the most difficult environments like freezers.

Some achievable benefits are impact strength, tear strength and flex-crack resistance, excellent sealing properties, outstanding optical properties and improved film output and film downgauging.

Medical packaging

To maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare applications, ExxonMobil provides a consistent, high-quality polymer portfolio, specifically designed for healthcare and medical applications. Besides, there are materials available for all sterilization techniques.

Lamination tubes

ExxonMobil Chemical performance polymers provide high-performance packaging lamination tubes (lamitubes) which can support the most demanding stresses. Some common applications include cosmetics, health products, food and liquid products.

Liquid packaging

ExxonMobil Chemical performance polymers help protect and preserve liquid products such as wine, milk, oil, juice and detergent with a range of products that deliver peak performance in sealing, flexibility, impact resistance and critical properties which can support the most demanding environments. Furthermore, there are some typical liquid-packaging applications like bag-in-box bladder films, pillow and stand-up pouch films that are laminated or nonlaminated, and flexi-tank container liners.

Pallet packaging

Performance polymers are useful to get an optimal load stability and package integrity. These products can also support the most demanding stresses for product protection, helping brand owners protect their goods through the value chain.

Soft-shrink packaging

To wrap, overwrap and bundle-packaging solutions from manufacturer to end use, ExxonMobil Chemical provide cost-effective packaging and efficient solutions to protect delicate or irregularly shaped items. The most common applications are delicate food and irregularly shaped products such as office supplies, stationery products and air filters.

Compounding

Vistamaxx™ performance polymers key benefits for compounding are improved impact strength, greater flexibility, continuous clarity, no changes to existing equipment, accepted for food packaging, process efficiencies and stress whitening reduction or elimination.
