ExxonMobil Chemical introduces new labeling and flexible packaging OPP film products

ExxonMobil Chemical Co : 08 November, 2004  (New Product)
The world's premier provider of specialty films for flexible packaging and labeling will highlight two new OPP films with ultrahigh barrier and enhanced sealant technology at booth (N 3351). In addition, ExxonMobil will showcase recent film developments for labeling technologies with critical growth in the use of synthetics including cold-glue and in-mold technologies.
ExxonMobil Chemical Company pushes the boundaries of oriented polypropylene film performance at Pack Expo 2004.

'ExxonMobil continues to invest significantly in new technologies and product development to bring our customers new packaging solutions,' said Jim Ashmore, Sales and Marketing Manager for the Films Business, Americas. 'At Pack Expo, we're showing several films with advancements that open up new markets to the benefits of OPP film.'

Featuring exceptional barrier properties combined with enhanced sealant technology, two new films from ExxonMobil help users simplify previously complicated package designs by replacing multi-web structures.

Metallyte X-28 UBW-ES is a multi-layer, cavitated white OPP film that was designed specifically to replace foil and a sealant web by combining the properties of each into one film. It is metallized on one side with a proprietary sealant layer on the other. This film provides improved barrier to flex cracking over foil. It features an enhanced sealant to provide leak-free seals and allow sealing through contamination of dry food and mix particles. The film has an exceptional barrier to gases, flavors, moisture and light and features a brilliant foil appearance.

Metallyte® X-28 UCW-ES is a multi-layer, cavitated, white OPP film with an enhanced sealant to provide leak-free seals and allow sealing through contamination. The film combines the properties of metalized polyester and polyethelene, creating a mono-web packaging solution. This film can be surface printed and overlaquered, has an exceptional barrier to gases, flavors and moisture and was designed specifically for fractional pack coffee applications. Metallyte UCW-ES will also be offered in a 40 micron gauge.

In 2001, ExxonMobil launched Label-Lyte 85 LP, a drop-in replacement film for paper in water-based, cold-glue, cut and stack labeling applications. The success of Label-Lyte 85 LP drove ExxonMobil to launch two new films, both on display at Labelexpo 2004. Label-Lyte 90 LP and Label-Lyte 95 LP both feature surfaces compatible with the offset litho printing process. Label-Lyte 90 LP features a high sheen metal surface and Label-Lyte 95 LP offers a glossy, white appearance.

ExxonMobil's Label-Lyte LP films boast excellent moisture resistance and durability, passing 24-, 48- and 72-hour ice-chest testing resolving problems from curl, flagging, tearing and wrinkling that paper labels experience. Label-Lyte LP films reduce glue usage up to 50 percent versus paper labels. And, during trials on commercial bottling equipment, these films create a significant cost savings for the bottler.

ExxonMobil completes its booth by featuring two new films for the growing in-mold labeling market. Label-Lyte 65 LIM 301 and Label-Lyte 95 LBM 301 debuted at Label Expo 2004. These films combine cost and converting benefits for printers with strong visual appeal characteristics for the end user. In-mold labeling continues to gain popularity due to the appeal of a 'no-label' look with retailers and the elimination of investment in labeling equipment and label application by the end user.

Used in injection molding applications such as margarine, stadium cups, yogurt and deli salad tubs, Label-Lyte 65 LIM 301 provides a smooth and glossy finish after molding. The film also offers good printability, with a print skin designed for litho and solvent gravure and flexo printing, together with excellent die-cutting. The mold ready side provides excellent adhesion to the container and compatibility with the container makes recycling easy.

Label-Lyte 95 LBM 301, a developmental film for blow-molded containers, is mold ready, no adhesive required. Designed for blow-molded containers used in liquid laundry, household chemical, food and auto applications, this film satisfies the high demands for blow-mold film label converting and application at affordable economics.

'For over 30 years, ExxonMobil Chemical Company has been bringing new and proven packaging solutions to the industry and this year is no different,' said Ashmore. 'We appreciate the opportunity that Pack Expo gives us to let our customers know they can continue to turn to us for innovative solutions to their packaging needs now and in the future.'
