Color that moves, durability that lasts — Exxtral™ performance polyolefins  

The automotive industry is rapidly evolving. Alternative power trains, vehicle autonomy and ridesharing are changing consumer expectations of what they see, touch and feel inside the vehicle. To match this trend, OEM and Tier 1 manufacturers will need more customized and colorable polypropylene formulation options that do not sacrifice durability or application flexibility.

ExxonMobil™ collaborated with Clariant, a leader in additives and color masterbatches for plastics, and PVL, a renowned part manufacturer and specialist in decoration and design, to develop a polypropylene formulation that was as durable and flexible as it was colorable. The successful result of this partnership is Exxtral™ BMU046x(1) performance polyolefins.
