ExxonMobil Chemical's Vistamaxx 2125 specialty elastomer has won the INDEX 08 Award for the category: "Raw materials or component - innovation in a raw material of special relevance to the nonwovens industry."

Recognizing the best examples of excellence in innovation in the nonwovens industry, the INDEX Awards are sponsored by the European Disposables and Nonwovens Association (EDANA), the international association representing nonwovens and related industries.

The awards panel is comprised of industry experts from marketing, research and development, the media and academia. INDEX 08 took place in Geneva from April 15-18, 2008.

“We are delighted to have won this award. For Vistamaxx specialty elastomers to have been acknowledged by the industry in this way is a wonderful accolade,” said Simon Holmes, global marketing manager, specialty elastomers, ExxonMobil Chemical.

“It is another demonstration of the impact that Vistamaxx specialty elastomers are having on the nonwovens industry, opening up new opportunities for creative converters and fabricators to further the growth and value of nonwovens.”

Vistamaxx specialty elastomers are being used in a growing range of nonwoven applications including hygiene absorbent products, 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.
