ExxonMobil Chemical Introduces Vistalon
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ExxonMobil Chemical Company has introduced Vistalonâ„¢ EPM* rubber 722 which can cost effectively improve processability and cable flexibility in medium- and low-voltage wire and cable applications.
In comparison with conventional EPDM, the metallocene-based product can provide processing improvements while exhibiting similar performance. Compared with cross-linked polyethylene (PE), it offers improved performance and excellent flexibility at low temperatures. And, it has improved electrical properties compared with metallocene EPDMs.
We have developed Vistalon EPM 722 for customers looking for improved productivity during cable manufacture and increased flexibility and durability in final cable construction. Exhibiting good electrical properties, it is highly successful in several commercial applications. Vistalon EPM 722 is just one of many examples of the exceptional opportunities and value that ExxonMobil`s metallocene technology brings to our customers and we have more in development, " said Ulf Nilsson, global EPDM product manager, ExxonMobil Chemical.
The new product is supplied in pellet form, making it clean and easy to use.
