Nexxstar™ resin formulations for stretch hood film

Nexxstar resin formulations enable a new generation of stretch hood films that offer economic benefits and improved load protection for palletized goods as well as exceptional clarity for display in retail outlets.

Compared with conventional shrink film, stretch film and cardboard, Nexxstar resin formulations and the latest stretch hood equipment combine to offer benefits that include:

  • More than 30% cost reduction
  • Higher holding force, even at higher temperatures
  • Outstanding display properties
  • Load stability
  • Tear and puncture resistance
  • Weather protection
  • Excellent seal strength
  • Fewer damaged/returned goods
  • No need to use natural gas or open flame

Stretch hood films using Nexxstar resins are well-suited for  pallet-packing applications that include beverages, packaged food and bottled goods, household appliances, products packed in bags (sand, cement, etc.), packaging materials, paper and building products.

New ingredients enhance performance
For next-level stretch hood capabilities, consider a combination of Nexxstar™ ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymer resin, which provides improved stretch, and Exceed™ performance polymers, which offers toughness and clarity.

For a more forgiving yet significantly tougher film with a broader operating window for film production and hooding applications, ask your ExxonMobil representative about adding Vistamaxx™ performance polymers to your formulation.
