Resins and Elastomers For Food Packaging

November 30, -0001

ExxonMobil's Vistamaxx specialty elastomers and resins targeted at flexible and rigid food packaging applications have received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration under the Food Contact Notification process. Thee grades, used in compounding and films, are also compliant with the compositional requirements for the UE-Directive for use in contact with food.

Food packaging applications can benefit from Vistamaxx's outstanding film sealing performance stemming from broad compatibility, low seal initiation temperature and high hot-tack. Typical applications for Vistamaxx specialty elastomers include food containers, kitchen tools and utensils and toys. As Vista­maxx polymers improve flexibility and impact resistance without affecting tensil strength, they can help prevent cracking in these types of applications.
