ExxonMobil Chemical new film label innovation

ExxonMobil Chemical Co : 11 January, 2007  (New Product)
ExxonMobil Chemical's newest oriented polypropylene films and labelling technology for pressure sensitive adhesive, wrap-around, patch, cut and stack, shrink and in-mold labelling applications will be on display (Stand 5603). In particular, the company is developing new PSA and wet-glue patch films aimed at the fast growing milk, beer, wine and spirits sectors.
The Films Business of ExxonMobil Chemical will feature innovative applications from around the world to demonstrate the versatility of its Label-Lyte(TM) labelling films.

ExxonMobil Chemical's newest oriented polypropylene films and labelling technology for pressure sensitive adhesive, wrap-around, patch, cut and stack, shrink and in-mold labelling applications will be on display (Stand 5603). In particular, the company is developing new PSA and wet-glue patch films aimed at the fast growing milk, beer, wine and spirits sectors.

'We are committed to the labelling business and to using our unique film technology, including shrink films, special coatings and metallization, to expand the market,' says Denis Rousseau, Market Segment Group Manager for the Films Business of ExxonMobil Chemical. 'Plastic, especially OPP, provides the ideal solution for today's 'new look' labelling applications. We continue to develop our labelling technology and production capacity to offer the market a wide range of proprietary Label-Lyte films with superior properties.'

Latest pressure sensitive films
Pressure sensitive applications using ExxonMobil Chemical's popular top-coated white, multi-printable, PSA face stock, will be prominently displayed at the show. The film is particularly suitable for UV flexo printing, offering excellent printability, ink adhesion and a greatly reduced risk of ink mottling.

Expanded patch technology
Several transparent films for wet-glue patch applications, using existing patch technology and high solids glues, will also be on display. These films are used in diverse labelling applications such as vodka and flavored alcohol-based beverages, as well as for jams and spices. ExxonMobil Chemical's next generation of patch films with cold clear glues is targeted to other market sectors that traditionally use paper labels, such as milk, beer, wines and spirits.

Cost-efficient shrink film
The company has upgraded its Label-Lyte ROSOTM (Roll-On-Shrink-On) films and will display examples of its 40 and 30 ROSO film. Aimed at smaller containers with lower stiffness requirements, ROSO film is one of the most cost-effective forms of shrink labelling. ExxonMobil Chemical is offering a developmental 40 higher-shrink film, which increases on-bottle shrinkage to approximately 20 percent using an optimized shrink tunnel.

Sales and technical experts from the Films Business of ExxonMobil Chemical will be at the show to explain the latest Label-Lyte technology and how to design the optimum solution for flexible labelling needs.
