ExxonMobil Chemical announces new cost-effective PE resin for wire and cable applications

ExxonMobil Chemical Co : 08 March, 2004  (New Product)
ExxonMobil Chemical announces a new linear low density polyethylene resin, LL 4004EL, for low-voltage power cable insulations. Globally available, this resin provides the cable manufacturer with a balance of crosslinking speed and ease of processing for cost-competitive cable constructions.
'Due to optimization of its antioxidants and improved polymer characteristics, this resin has been especially designed for Silane cross-linking technology, where cross-linking speed and processability are key,' said Dirk Michiels, ExxonMobil Chemical Company Global PE Products Technology Manager. 'We believe these improvements will provide a cost-effective alternative for cable manufacturers to improve their bottom-lines.'

ExxonMobil LL 4004EL resin has been field-tested for two years and is suitable for processing in both one-step (Monosil) and two-step (Sioplas) process technology. ExxonMobil Chemical LDPE and LLDPE grades have been used successfully for more than 15 years in wire and cable Silane Technology. Continual quality testing, along with controlled shipping logistics, ensures uniform, consistent products. Wire and cable manufacturers will benefit from increased efficiency of their cable productions.

ExxonMobil Chemical's global wire and cable team is dedicated to providing cost-effective products and services. Our experienced application technical service staff is responsible for serving needs of customers in the wire and cable industry. For example, our elastomeric alloys in flexible cables and the use of Vistalon™ EPDM and Escorene™ Ultra polyethylene copolymers in the formulation of low-smoke, halogen-free, flame-retardant wire and cable compounds are premier products in the industry. ExxonMobil Chemical offers worldwide support in the use of polymers and compounds for every need from its broad portfolio of polyolefins, including elastomers, EVA and EAA copolymers and metallocene-based polyolefins.
