Containers and tanks  

ExxonMobil Chemical polypropylene, polyethylene and Vistamaxx™ performance polymer products are designed for high performance and affordability across a wide range of industrial container and tank applications.

Applications and benefits

A range of polypropylene impact copolymer resins at differing melt flow rates helps optimize lightweighting and performance while reducing creep and breakage of totes, crates and pallets. Choose from a variety of grades designed to maximize processability and reduce cycle time.

  • For outstanding stiffness and high durability, consider ExxonMobil™ PP resins for your demanding material-handling applications.
  • Benefits include:
    • Typical “no-break” Izod impact performance
    • High stiffness
    • Exceptional stack strength and heat resistance
    • Good cycle time
    • Low stress whitening
    • Lightweighting without sacrificing performance
    • Added flexibility – for additional impact resistance in totes, crates and pallets, consider adding Vistamaxx™ performance polymers to polypropylene.
