Exact polyolefin plastomer impact modifiers for PP, PE, and styrenic block copolymers. Exxelor reactive polymers are functionally grafted polyolefins used for impact modifying engineering thermoplastics and polyolefins.
Exxpro specialty elastomers with bromine functionality are durable and weatherable. Provide impact enhancement in a number of different polymers for extreme environments.
Other impact modifiers include Escor acid terpolymers, Iotek ionomers, and Optema ethylene methyl acrylate (EMA) polymers.
Jayflex plasticizers, used alone or in custom blends include branched and linear phthalates such as diisohexyl (DHP), diisoheptyl (77), diisononyl (DINP), diisodecyl (DIDP), ditridecyl (DTDP), undecyl dodecyl (UDP), di-L-nonyl (L9P), di-L-nonyl, undecyl (L911P), and di-L-undecyl (L11P); trimellitates such as triisooctyl (TIOTM) and triisononyl (TINTM); adipates such as diisononyl (DINA), diisooctyl (DIOA), diisodecyl (DIDA), and ditridecyl (DTDA); and extenders and specialty plasticizers.
Linear C9 phthalate plasticizer, Jayflex L9P, provides lower volatility and fogging in automotive vinyls and is useful in roofing membranes and pond liners where superior stability is required.
Polyfil's new CFA masterbatch used Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomer as a carrier which is said to deliver several processing and end-use advantages for foamed PP and thermoformed products.
For a company that did not exhibit at K 2013, ExxonMobil Chemical certainly was busy at October’s Dusseldorf trade show. Material from the Houston-based resin giant was running on a handful of film lines producing everything from five-layer collation-shrink blown film to five-layer hygiene film, three-layer lamination film, and 33-layer nano-cast stretch film.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Windsor Mold Group (WMG) is using ExxonMobil’s Santoprene TPV to replace EPDM rubber, allowing robotic extrusion of the bulb seal directly onto a PP cowl for Ford’s C-Max hybrid electric vehicle.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Several new specialty material production units will be build on the U.S.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Austria’s Borealis Group (U.S. office in Port Murray, N.J.) has acquired DEXPlastomers VOF, previously a Dutch 50/50 venture between Royal DSM of the Netherlands and ExxonMobil Chemical Co., Houston.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: A new, more sustainable stretch-hood solution developed by the Belgian polymer plant of Houston-based ExxonMobil Chemical Co. is now being expanded by the company to the resin packaging operations of all of its polymer plants, and can easily be extended to other stretch-hood applications, the company says.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Polypropylene has the edge over PET and PS for clear thermoformed drink cups because of its heat resistance, allowing it to be used for hot beverages.
Small player in a large market speaks in a loud voice.
In blown film, equipment and material suppliers have come together to push five-layer technology into non-barrier applications previously held by three-layer films.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Significant downgauging potential and outstanding processability on both LDPE and LLDPE extrusion equipment are claimed for new Enable mPE 35-05CH, a metallocene MDPE from ExxonMobil Chemical, Houston.
Commercialized four years ago by ExxonMobil Chemical, Houston, Vistamaxx olefinic TPE was used originally for spunbond nonwovens because of its elasticity.
Huge new shuttle and carousel machines, expanded availability of CNC-machined aluminum molds, and new resins and additives highlighted the recent Rotoplas ’08 exhibition and 33rd Annual Fall Meeting of the Association of Rotational Molders (ARM) in Rosemont, Ill.
Three grades of Vistamaxx propylene-ethylene copolymers from ExxonMobil Chemical Co., Houston, have received approval from the FDA for use in flexible and rigid food packaging applications.
ExxonMobil Chemical, Houston, has introduced the first U.S.-made transparent TPO for grip applications in kitchenware, consumer electronics, tools, small appliances, and stationary markets. (As we reported in February, another clear TPO, called Notio, was introduced by Mitsui Chemicals of Japan last year.) ExxonMobil’s TPE F471-60 offers 82% light transmittance, haze of 11%, and yellowness index of 7.5.
Olefinic TPEs originally comprised only two classes of rubber-modified polypropylene, known as TPO and TPV. More recently, these have been supplemented by new types of olefinic elastomers that can be used on their own or as the rubber component in TPO/TPV compounds. Additionally, a small handful of specialty TPEs using olefinic matrices occupy niche applications.
A new family of metallocene-based LLDPE film resins reportedly provides an unprecedented combination of processability and hexene copolymer performance.
ExxonMobil Chemical Co., Houston, has introduced a dynamically vulcanized alloy of Exxpro specialty rubber in nylon as a replacement for halobutyl thermoset rubber in tire inner liners.
Two firms recently announced polypropylene compounds businesses aimed largely at automotive.
ExxonMobil Chemical Co., Houston, and Japan’s Mitsubishi Chemical Corp. terminated their Mytex Polymers joint venture on June 1.
