A new family of metallocene-based LLDPE film resins reportedly provides an unprecedented combination of processability and hexene copolymer performance. New Enable mPE from ExxonMobil Chemical Co., Houston, is aimed at collation shrink and pallet shrink films, cast stretch handwrap, agricultural greenhouse films, heavy-duty bags, and lamination films. Their easy processing reportedly can replace LDPE while providing superior drawdown and enhanced toughness. Five initial grades include Enable 20-05 and 20-10 for blown film, with 0.920 g/cc density and a 1.0 MI. Heavily stabilized versions also are available for cast film. Enable 23-05CH (0.5 MI) and 23-10CH (1 MI) both have a density of 0.923 g/cc, while Enable 27-03CH has 0.3 MI and 0.927 density. (281) 870-6000 • exxonmobil.com
