February 16, 2006

ExxonMobil Chemical Technology Licensing has signed a licensing agreement with Thailand's PTT Chemical Public Company Limited for production of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) in a 100 KTA autoclave system. PTTChem, an affiliate of PTT Group and the largest producer of ethylene and propylene monomer in Thailand, also produces HDPE and supports its downstream petrochemical plants with a variety of utilities and logistics facilities.
    PTTChem will use ExxonMobil autoclave technology also employed at  Exxon’s polymers plant in Antwerp, Belgium. The flexibility of the ExxonMobil LDPE technology will enable PTTChem to produce an extensive grade slate. The products produced by the ExxonMobil technology can be used in a variety of applications, including film packaging, injection-molded articles, insulation materials, pipe and tubing.
