Rigid packaging

Rigid packaging

ExxonMobil™ impact copolymer (ICP) polypropylene (PP) resins can provide excellent product performance, appearance and durability of a range of packaging products, while also helping to deliver low product weight and costs.

They can be used in a range of paint pails and other thin-wall injection molded (TWIM) applications, such as food containers.

ExxonMobil ICP PP resins can offer:

  • Cost reduction – high melt flow rate (MFR), fast crystallization rate and easy mold release offers opportunities for fast cycle times and high productivity, while low raw material costs are possible due to low density and thin materials
  • Excellent aesthetics – antistatic properties and good gloss for low dust accumulation for improved hygiene and excellent shelf appeal
  • Product differentiation – attractive design features including in-mold labels and complex shapes for high profile brand recognition
  • Outstanding durability – good impact resistance even at low temperatures and excellent stiffness for stacking and de-nesting
  • Potential sustainability benefits – raw material savings from “thin walling” of finished products and the recycling of scrap produced during processing .
  • Safety and hygiene – acceptable odor and flavor levels, and compliance with FDA and EU food law
