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.
Advances in materials, feedblock/die technologies, and winding can help processors develop more sophisticated cast-stretch products.
Prices moved up for PS and PP but stayed flat for PE and PVC, despite price increases on the table.
There was no shortage of new thermoplastics and additives covering the full range of end-use applications.
A thin functional layer offers big benefits in cast PPS films.
Global and domestic supply constrictions reverse the recent downward trend in prices for commodity resins.
Another major material supplier, ExxonMobil Chemicals, to host seminars on market trends and product innovations.
Lots of news in engineering thermoplastic compounds, TPEs, and purging agents, plus a wide range of colorants and additives.
ExxonMobil's latest Vistamaxx specialty elastomer is for enhance sealing of cPP and BOPP films.
Five-layer technology can provide processors with more productivity and greater flexibility to produce a wider range of products from a single line.
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.
