Enhancing properties


Trying to get the right balance of film properties can result in compromises and complex formulations that fail to deliver a satisfying outcome. To help resolve this, ExxonMobil Chemical engineered Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomer (PBE). A copolymer of ethylene and propylene, it offers a solution that is compatible with a wide range of polymers that can be easily integrated with existing manufacturing processes.

With a range of Vistamaxx PBE grades at your disposal, you can tailor polymer properties, including:

  • Elasticity for effective stability and protection of loads
  • Sealability for leak-free, air-tight packaging (modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) applications) and fast packaging line speeds
  • Toughness for package puncture resistance and effective hermetic seal performance, so that contents can stay fresh longer
  • Adhesion for effective package integrity, helping food products maintain freshness, taste, aroma and appearance
  • Surface cling for high performance surface protection films
  • Optical properties for eye-catching, aesthetic package designs and consumer appeal
