ExxonMobil to display portfolio of Vistamaxx at INDEX

ExxonMobil Chemical will demonstrate its global leadership and commitment to nonwovens technology at booth 2115 in Hall 2 at INDEX 08 in Geneva from April 15-18, 2008. On display will be ExxonMobil Chemical's portfolio of Vistamaxx specialty elastomers and its polypropylene (PP) solutions for nonwoven applications.

Since the launch at INDEX 05, Vistamaxx specialty elastomers continue to accelerate into nonwoven applications and, in particular, hygiene absorbent products (HAP) such as diapers. To support this growth, as well as increased demand for PP, ExxonMobil Chemical announced in September 2007 that it will proceed with a second world-scale steam cracker complex in Singapore, which will include a 450,000 tons-per-year PP unit and a 300,000 tons-per-year specialty elastomers unit.

Vistamaxx specialty elastomers are being used in a growing range of nonwoven applications including hygiene, medical, filtration and industrial because of their versatile benefits and product qualities. These include good elasticity, toughness, the ability to bond easily with other materials for advanced processing, design flexibility, and a high coefficient of friction for slip resistant applications.

“By using Vistamaxx specialty elastomers, nonwovens producers are able to make an elastic fabric in a single step using a variety of spunbond equipment. In the past, this was possible only in a multistep process.

Eliminating steps in the process can reduce total system cost while achieving the required performance,” said Simon Holmes, global marketing manager, specialty elastomers, ExxonMobil Chemical. “Vistamaxx specialty elastomers also allow increased capability in multi-beam processing lines to include elasticity in multi-layer fabrics.”
