'ExxonMobil PP5082KN was developed with the requirements of thermoforming processors and end users in mind,' says Ivana Jovanovic, senior market development representative, ExxonMobil Chemical. 'Its polymerization design and additive package create an optimal balance of the properties desired in thermoforming applications, including cost-effectiveness.'

Thermoforming represents one of the fastest-growing markets for polypropylene. This process involves heating an extruded thermoplastic sheet and stretching it over a mold surface to create a specific shape. Some of the most-common applications for polypropylene thermoforming include cups, containers and protective packaging for food.
