ExxonMobil introduces new polymer grades for greenhouse films

ExxonMobil is expanding its Exceed XP – when eXtreme Performance matters – portfolio with the introduction of two new grades at its K2016 pavilion (FG04) in Dusseldorf, Germany from 19-26 October. These new grades deliver performance advantages for film converters and end-users in applications that include agriculture and horticulture greenhouses and large tunnels.

“We are excited to extend our recently launched Exceed XP portfolio with two new grades that provide our customers with additional options for applications that require extreme performance,” said Cindy Shulman, plastics and resins vice president, ExxonMobil Chemical. “Since its launch, Exceed XP has been exceptionally well received in the market with customers reporting an unprecedented level of performance. These new grades will broaden this impact.”

These grades, Exceed XP 6026 and Exceed XP 6056, provide outstanding processability with enhanced toughness, flex-crack resistance, sealability, balanced shrink performance, and good optical properties. For converters, the high melt strength of these polymers promotes greater bubble stability and improved output.

Exceed XP allows converters to cost-effectively fabricate films and liners for extreme protection and preservation: Greenhouse and large tunnel film with the toughness and strength to help farmers and horticulturalists protect and grow their fruits, vegetables and flowers throughout the year. Exceed XP allows converters to easily fabricate films which are typically 80-220 micron thick and up to 20 meters wide. They can withstand the rigors of installation and varied environmental conditions, including harsh weather over time. Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and non-EVA film formulations can be easily tailored for seasonal requirements and for special applications and climate conditions.

“These new performance polymers are part of our commitment to help our customers achieve sustainable business growth,” said Shulman. “It is by sharing knowledge and working in collaboration across the value chain that helps us create differentiated solutions for applications where extreme performance matters.”
