Polyolefins Rock at K 2016
Loads of new engineering resins and compounds are being showcased at K 2016, but new and improved polyolefins and polyolefin elastomers also shined in Dusseldorf.
Specialty Olefinic TPE For High-End Cast Power Pre-Stretch Films
ExxonMobil's new Vistamaxx 6000 making a debut at NPE is designed for use in the functional layer of cast power pre-stretch films.
Washington Penn To Buy ExxonMobil's PP Compounding Business
This marks the second PP compounding business to change hands this year.
Novel Liquid Modifiers for Polyolefins Have Multiple Functions
A family of liquid polymer modifiers with a proven track record in EPDM compounds has been expanded for use in a broad range of polyolefins.
Metallocene PP & PE Weld Strongly to Each Other
Multilayer film applications such as packaging and diapers are just two areas that could benefit from spot welding (instead of gluing) polyethylene to polypropylene. Normally these two resins show poor adhesion to each other. But two years of research at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and at ExxonMobil Chemical in Houston show that metallocene-catalyzed polyolefins can weld to each other with bond strengths much greater than are possible with conventional Ziegler-Natta catalyzed polyolefins.
