ExxonMobil’s Exceed XP

Polymers for food packaging

Liquid packaging using Exceed XP performance polymers delivers exceptional flex-crack resistance and toughness with outstanding sealing that prevent product leakage and contamination, helping manufacturers and brand owners protect and preserve their products

ExxonMobil is expanding its comprehensive slate of polyethylene products with the introduction of Exceed XP performance polymers. Developed through advanced catalyst technology, process research, and application expertise, Exceed XP is specifically designed to provide extreme performance ina variety of liquid and food packaging film applications and to run at faster output rates on blown-film lines.

“Exceed XP can improve packaging solutions for the essential protection and preservation of liquids and food products. These new polymers allow excellent processing with superior performance to create extremely damage resistant packaging that benefits converters and end-users,” said Thomas Deman, global polyethylene marketing manager, ExxonMobil Chemical.

With Exceed XP performance polymers, converters can fabricate improved liquid packaging films for demanding applications including bag-in-box bladders, pillow and stand-up pouches, and flexi-tank container liners. The toughness and flex-crack resistance of films made with Exceed XP help absorb the shock and mitigate the risk of pinholes caused by the repeated movement of products during production, handling and transportation. This, combined with the film’s sealing performance, can minimize leakage and product waste.

Exceed XP also allows converters to produce food packaging films that withstand demanding environments like low temperatures or high-volume content packaging. The toughness and sealing performance of the films help producers and brand owners protect and preserve their food products, while minimizing waste, from production through consumption.

Moreover, Exceed XP performance polymers offer a range of options for bubble stability and ease of extrusion to deliver a combination of extreme performance with processability and improved output. Converters can cost-effectively tailor film solutions via linear polyethylene blends or downgauging.

“The flexible food packaging market continues to drive toward more lightweight, yet stronger and more effective solutions,” said Deman. “Exceed XP can help meet these market needs by providing an outstanding combination of toughness, damage resistance and sealability. Downgauging levels of up to 30% can be achieved with better packaging performance, while helping to extend shelf-life and product safety to protect and preserve food longer.”

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
