ExxonMobil Introduces Exceed™ S Performance Polyethylene

ExxonMobil Introduces Exceed™ S Performance Polyethylene

News 08.04.2022

ExxonMobil introduced today its new Exceed™ S performance polyethylene (PE) resins, which deliver industry-leading combinations of stiffness and toughness while being easy to process. Utilizing the company’s latest innovations in polymer science, the new PE platform provides opportunities to reduce the complexity of film formulations and designs while improving film performance, conversion efficiency, and packaging durability versus current market references.

Modern film design is a story of increasing complexity and compromise between performance and processability that is accepted to ensure durable packaging and high customer satisfaction. Multi-component resin blends in coextruded and laminated films with high layer counts are common-place. Every step of producing and converting printed film into durable packaging is prone to complexity-induced inefficiency, scrap and human mistakes. What if your resin could help simplify all of this?

“Exceed™ S performance PE resins deliver simplicity without compromise,” said Tom Miller, Exceed™ S marketing manager at ExxonMobil. “With Exceed S, converters can obtain high levels of performance with easy processing, stiffness and toughness with less blending, and resin solutions that can simplify operations and improve package durability. In short, it is a platform of performance polyethylene grades designed to do so much, so simply.”

Innovative converters can rethink film design with Exceed™ S performance PE by...

  • Creating stiff, tough functional layers to maximize performance
  • Leveraging increased performance to help facilitate solutions with sustainability benefits
  • Reducing the need to add HDPE for stiffness or LDPE for processing 
  • Creating flatter, less extensible films to increase print and package line efficiency
  • Delivering more durable flexible packaging, contributing to consumer satisfaction and helping to reduce food waste

The first three commercially available grades of Exceed™ S resins are designed to ensure low melt pressure and high output on blown film lines. The combined benefits allow the creation of a broad range of packaging and film applications (see Figire):

  • Large-format heavy duty sacks used in industry and agricultureLarge-format heavy duty sacks used in industry and agriculturealong with silo bags for farming can benefit from increased puncture,impact and tear resistance. Exceed™ S resin’s combination of low meltpressure and high extrusion output can also help increase converter’sproduction capacity
  • In primary packaging, non-laminated coextruded films used inpouches and bags containing liquid, food, or other goods can benefitfrom improved toughness and are less likely to break whentransported or dropped. For example, multi-wall bladders used inhot-filled bag-in-box packaging exhibit exceptional resistance toheat-induced blocking and flex cracking.
  • PE//PE laminates with improved stiffness, toughness and bag dropsurvival can help facilitate larger pouch sizes and accommodatebulkier, heavier contents, helping to expand market usage ofmechanically recyclable packaging.

In these types of applications, the outstanding mechanical properties ofExceed™ S resins can be used to increase film performance, maintaincomparable performance at a thinner gauge, produce more durable monomaterialproducts, or incorporate high percentages of recycled content.Providing such solutions are part of ExxonMobil’s four-pronged approach ofusing performance polymers to help facilitate solutions with sustainabilitybenefits.

“ExxonMobil has been at the forefront of polyethylene innovation for nearlythirty years,” said David Hergenrether, vice president for polyethylene atExxonMobil. “The new Exceed™ S platform embodies our most advancedproduct and process development informed by deep, long-standingpartnerships with our customers.”
