BRUSSELS, Belgium--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ExxonMobil and Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H) are collaborating at K2016 to demonstrate how the combination of new Exceed™ XP – when eXtreme Performance matters -- polymers and machine technology intelligence can enable 5-layer film solutions that provide innovation opportunities for brand owners and packaging film converters.
“By sharing knowledge and collaborating for more than 15 years, we continue to expand industry boundaries by applying unrivaled polymer and process technologies. At K2016, we are pleased to be showcasing our new performance polymer film formulations on W&H’s latest Varex II extrusion equipment,” said Dirk Van der Sanden, global processing and converting advisor, ExxonMobil Chemical.
“Varex II is equipped with innovative TurboClean quick film formulation change-over technology which allows production lot changes in a matter of minutes,” said Martin Backmann, R&D division manager, Windmöller & Hölscher.
Demonstrating this unique and value-added processing flexibility at its booth (Hall 17/A57), W&H will run and change two 5-layer POD (polyolefin dedicated) films using TurboClean technology. This technology has the ability to change-over from one prime production lot to another, significantly minimizing off-spec transition material, which helps to address a major issue for film processors. The machine will produce a food packaging film produced using Exceed™ XP performance polymers, which exhibit extreme toughness and excellent seal performance—helping producers and brand owners protect and preserve food longer.
The machine will then change to a collation shrink film, produced using Enable™ 4002 performance polymer, which offers high holding force and high transverse direction (TD) shrink for exceptionally tight bundling to keep products secure.
These new performance polymers are part of ExxonMobil’s commitment to helping customers achieve sustained business growth. It is by sharing knowledge and working in collaboration across the value chain that creates differentiated solutions for applications when extreme performance matters.
