Exxonmobil Chemical's propylene-based elastomer approved for Japan's food contact applications

October 26/2010

(China Plastic & Rubber Journal) -- ExxonMobil Chemical's Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomer has been approved for food contact applications, such as flexible and rigid food packaging, by the Japan Hygienic Olefin and Styrene Plastics Association (JHOSPA).

Based on ExxonMobil Chemical's proprietary Exxpol metallocene technology, Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomer offers a unique combination of high elasticity, softness, toughness, flexibility and clarity.

The elastomer can be used as a blend partner to modify the polymer properties to meet the needs of the application in which it is being used. A lower density alternative to PET, PC and PVC, it can be used for downgauging, reducing part thickness and weight.

The grades, used in compounding and films, are already compliant with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the Food Contact Notification process.
