ExxonMobil: High clarity tissue overwrap film
The combination of ExxonMobil Chemical’s Exceed™ and Enable™ metallocene polyethylene (mPE) resins and 3-layer coextrusion blown film technology from Hubei Light Industry Machinery Co. Ltd. produce high clarity tissue overwrap films.
A blend of 85 percent Exceed mPE 2018KB resin and 15 percent Enable mPE 20-05HH resin in the outer layers of the film delivers outstanding toughness, impact and puncture resistance. Enable mPE 35-05HH resin in the core layer provides an excellent combination of stiffness and toughness. High hot tack performance and low seal initiation temperatures can lead to excellent seal strength and low energy consumption. The film also exhibits excellent optical properties for high clarity.
“The combination of ExxonMobil Chemical’s metallocene polyethylene resins and our machinery technology offers a solution with excellent integrity that can provide significant downgauging opportunities. As a result, we can produce high clarity tissue overwrap films that meet the needs of customers by allowing low material use,” said Mr. Wang Yamin, general manager, Hubei Light Industry Machinery Co. Ltd.
The 3-layer coextrusion line can be configured to an extrusion output of 250 kg/hour and a maximum film winding width of 1650mm.
