"These liner solutions help reduce penetration of water vapor for better energy efficiency and a reduced risk of mold formation."

ExxonMobil is expanding its comprehensive slate of polyethylene products with the introduction of Exceed™ XP performance polymers. Developed through advanced catalyst technology, process research, and application expertise, Exceed XP is specifically designed to provide extreme toughness in films for highly demanding applications in building and construction and to run at faster output rates on blown-film lines.

“Exceed XP performance polymers offer extreme performance in construction class-A liners, exceeding global standards,” said Thomas Deman, global polyethylene marketing manager, ExxonMobil Chemical. “These liner solutions help reduce penetration of water vapor for better energy efficiency and a reduced risk of mold formation.”

The outstanding toughness and bubble stability of liners made with these polymers allow converters to tailor film formulations and thickness. Output can be increased and film consistency improved, compared to standard formulations, even with large bubble sizes. This increases machine utilization and reduces reprocessing, for improved cost efficiency.

“Output improvements of over 30 percent have been observed in our validation trials,” Deman said.

Exceed XP will be available globally and supported by ExxonMobil Chemical’s network of technology centers and application experts.

Exceed XP forms a part of ExxonMobil’s commitment to growth and innovation. With a strong foundation of global reliability, product consistency and technical support, ExxonMobil extends its Exceed™ and Enable™ slate of performance polyethylene products with Exceed XP – for when extreme performance matters.
