Applications

Target application areas for Exceed XP grades include:

Flexible Liquid & Food Packaging

The flex-crack resistance and toughness of Exceed XP performance polymers makes them ideal for bag-in-box bladders, pillow and stand-up pouch films as well as larger flexi-tank container liners.

Due to their toughness and sealing performance Exceed XP polymers are also ideal for flexible food packaging, including pouches and bags, which need to withstand demanding environments such as freezers, or need to be capable of holding larger and heavier contents. This includes packaging for frozen food, dry food and meat & cheese products.

Construction Liners

Exceed XP offers a new benchmark for dart drop impact resistance in construction class-A and other highly demanding liner solutions.

Stronger, more impact resistant liners provide engineers with the potential to build safe, protected and energy efficient structures. In addition, exceptional melt strength offers opportunities for higher extrusion output and thicker liners while retaining performance.

Agricultural & horticultural films

Running select grades of Exceed XP with high MD orientation on blown film lines can lead to thin films with high MD tear strength. This combination of tear strength with the extreme toughness of Exceed XP is ideal for thin agricultural films such as silage stretch or mulch where film integrity in the field and handling are key. In addition, the high melt strength of Exceed XP allows for high output without the need for LDPE which can reduce tear strength & toughness.

Greenhouse film & walk-in tunnel covers can also be made with very high dart impact & puncture resistance and tensile strength, allowing these films to withstand the rigours of installation and varied environmental conditions. The films also exhibit excellent aged property retention for long-lasting, durable solutions.
