Extending performance product offers

We provide the building blocks for a wide range of products. This includes high-performance plastics, synthetic rubber, chemicals, fluids, and solvents. The latter is widely used in various applications, including packaging, automotive, agriculture, and industrial. Solvents also provide sustainability value and benefits. To further our sustainability objectives, we joined with organizations across the chemical value chain to form the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, which is helping to find common solutions to reduce plastic waste and prevent it from entering the environment.

Extending performance product offers

Exceed XP performance polyethylene

Exceed XP is the latest addition to the performance polyethylene (PE) portfolio. Sales of Exceed XP have increased by 400 percent since launching two years ago. Recently, we extended the product offer with a new liquid packaging film solution. This new solution, made with Exceed XP polymers, enables customers to fabricate damage-resistant film, which absorbs shock and mitigates the risk of flex-crack pinholes that are caused by the repeated movement of packaged liquids during production, handling, and transportation.

As an appliance component solution, Achieve Advanced polypropylene is 14% lighter and 20% less expensive than alternatives

Santoprene thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs)

ExxonMobil provides the global standard for engineered TPV, with more than 40 years of market experience. Santoprene TPVs offer sealing solutions that are both durable and attractive for a variety of market segments. They also provide potential benefits such as reduced weight and more-sustainable manufacturing and recycling versus other polymeric materials like thermoset rubber (TSR) or ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber.

Achieve Advanced Polypropylene

Introduced in 2018, Achieve Advanced Polypropylene eliminates trade-offs in performance and lower-cost processing experienced with conventional polypropylene. Achieve Advanced Polypropylene enables the production of lighter automotive components, glossier and lighter appliances, and thinner, more rigid packaging. The performance of Achieve Advanced Polypropylene also allows for the replacement of harder to recycle materials. As an appliance solution, Achieve Advanced Polypropylene is 14-percent lighter and can provide 20-percent cost savings over ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene).
