Global petrochemical company ExxonMobil Chemical has introduced three new grades of Vistamaxx specialty elastomers that exhibit a very low gel count, making them ideal for high performance film and fiber applications.
Like all Vistamaxx specialty elastomers, these grades can be blended with polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), or used as interfacing layers with PE and PP structures, to deliver excellent tie layer and lamination performance. Offering very low seal initiation temperatures combined with high seal strength, they are ideal for use as a sealing layer in coextruded structures.
Easy to process and available as free-flowing pellets, Vistamaxx 3020FL, Vistamaxx 3980FL and Vistamaxx 6102FL elastomers also offer good optical properties and good chemical resistance.
Additionally, the melt flow and ethylene co-monomer content of the Vistamaxx 3020FL and Vistamaxx 3980FL grades makes them well suited for other polymer modification applications.
