Houston, Texas -- ExxonMobil Chemical said its Vistamaxx 2125 speciality 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."
â€œWe 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,â€ said Simon Holmes, global marketing manager, specialty elastomers, ExxonMobil Chemical.
By using Vistamaxx specialty elastomers, nonwovens producers are able to make an elastic fabric in a single step using a variety of spunbond equipment. In the past, this was possible only in a multistep process. Eliminating steps in the process can reduce total system cost while achieving the required performance. Vistamaxx specialty elastomers also allow increased capability in multi-beam processing lines to include elasticity in multi-layer fabrics.
