“IDEA19 is the perfect platform for customers to discuss their challenges and innovation ideas with our polymer and application experts,” says Bhaskar Venkatraman, vice president, ExxonMobil Chemical. “Together, we can start creating differentiated solutions to meet the needs of the growing global population, increasing urbanization and expanding middle class.”
Its portfolio of performance PE polymers, including Exceed XP, Exceed and Enable performance PE polymers deliver thin, comfortable and secure breathable and non-breathable backsheet films. In addition, Achieve Advanced PP allows brand owners to rethink what’s possible by providing outstanding barrier properties and up to 15% higher fabric strength for nonwovens. Also on display will be products made with Vistamaxx performance polymers, Escorez tackifiers, and ExxonMobil polypropylene resins, all of which are used extensively by converters and formulators around the world.
“Demand for hygiene and nonwoven products, which help enable modern living, is expected to experience healthy growth,” says Venkatraman. “New products, such as Exceed XP, Exceed and Enable performance polymers, highlight our commitment to meet those needs and continue to serve our customers growth.”
These polymers and tackifiers deliver exceptional performance advantages for a range of hygiene products including:
- PP Nonwoven fabrics that are soft, comfortable, leak-proof and strong. For spunbond and meltblown processes, Achieve Advanced PP, Vistamaxx performance polymers and ExxonMobil PP resins offer ease of processing, softness, strength, and improved barrier performance.
- Backsheet films which are thin, comfortable and secure. Exceed XP, Exceed and Enable performance PE polymers allow the creation of breathable and non-breathable backsheet films with excellent mechanical properties and downgauging opportunities.
- Soft-stretch elastic laminates and nonwovens that provide a better fit. Vistamaxx performance polymer-based solutions offer tailored elasticity that enable fit, comfort and discretion, while maintaining low odor.
- Adhesives that are stable and provide high bond strength. Vistamaxx performance polymers and the Escorez 5000 family of high-performance tackifiers deliver adhesives that are light in color and remain thermally stable from manufacturing to product use.
