Technology

The blend of ExxonMobil PP3684HL, ExxonMobil PP3155E5 and Vistamaxx 7050BF processes easily on BiCo spunbond technology from Reifenhäuser Reicofil, a market leader in developing complete nonwoven, meltblown and composite production lines. This process, combined with our innovative blend of Vistamaxx performance polymers and ExxonMobil PP, creates thick and cottony-soft fabrics, compared to the thin, silky-soft fabrics created with existing spunbond technology.

The combination of ExxonMobil polymers and Reicofil technology addresses the growing demand for innovative, differentiated soft nonwovens in the global hygiene market and unlocks new business opportunities across the value chain.

Loft blends and key attributes

Three blends of ExxonMobil’s high-loft, ultra-soft solution can be created using different grades of ExxonMobil PP. Some blends produce a silkier finish, while others produce a more cotton-like result.
