ExxonMobil Chemical polymers for agriculture industry

In this article Fournier Polymers presents ExxonMobil Chemical offer for agriculture. Some of the main characteristics that make ExxonMobil Chemical performance PE polymers an exceptional solution for agriculture, are compliance with quality standards, product stewardship and regulatory compliance.

Also, an additional level of eXtreme Performance for agricultural film applications can be provided by films made with the recently introduced Exceed™ XP performance PE polymers platform.

Applications

Crop protection

Agricultural pesticide producers formulate the best crop protection products thanks to ExxonMobil Chemical hydrocarbon fluids and, moreover, meet regulatory and environmental requirements.

Groups of applicationsApplications and benefitsProduct solutions
Crop protectionHigh solvency power, allowing high active-ingredient concentration and delivery
High flash points and low vapor pressure for safe and cost-effective transportation and storage
Special grades that are naphthalene-depleted (ND)
High density for improved emulsion stability
Dearomatized hydrocarbon solvents
Heavy aromatic solvents
Branched alcohols

Greenhouse film

Exceed XP offer a large range of new, cost-effective greenhouse cover film solutions. These products enhance moisture retention, supply temperature management and secure crops from the environmental elements, supporting longer growing seasons. These greenhouse films help to conserve resources while increasing farmers labour efficiency.
