Created by ExxonMobil Chemical, Nexxstar resin formulations form the basis of innovative coextrusion films. Coupled with state-of -the-art stretch hood equipment, it offers considerable value-added benefits for the appliance industry.

As a result of the outstanding performance of stretch hood films using Nexxstar formulations, manufacturers can achieve significant economic benefits and outstanding toughness with improved load protection to help minimize product damage and returns. In addition to easy bar code reading, the film is so transparent it offers retail store customers a clear view of each appliance.

The stretch hood appliance-packing system is a fully automated technique that is both flexible and efficient. It represents a major advance in performance compared with typical industrial packaging systems.

AN OUTSTANDING RANGE OF BENEFITS
Outperforming cardboard, existing shrink and stretch films, the stretch hood equipment, coupled with Nexxstar resin formulated films, provides benefits which can include :
  • Cost saving of more than 40% when compared to cardboard.
  • 20-40% cost saving when compared to other films (shrink/conventional stretch hood).
  • Superb clarity for easy bar code reading, quality control and retail display.
  • Outstanding toughness and load stability from factory to shop floor.
  • Reduced stocking and inventory levels when compared to cardboard (high stacking).
  • Fewer damaged and returned goods.
  • Flexible (automatic) adaptation to appliance height, width and depth.
  • High packaging capacities of more than 170 loads/hour.
A BETTER LOAD PROTECTION ALTERNATIVE
Compared to typical packaging solutions, films using Nexxstar resin formulations represent major advances in performance.
Advantages over cardboard packaging can include :
  • Packaging cost savings of more than 40%.
  • Fully automated packaging lines compared to manual application of the cardboard box over the appliance.
  • Reduction in product damage and returns.
  • Outstanding optical properties, enabling bar code reading of the labels on the appliance and eliminating the need for labels on the film.
  • Improved product presentation as a result of film transparency.
  • Better stackability in the warehouse and on trailers.
  • Humidity-resistant packaging.
  • Less warehouse space required for packaging materials (16 pallets of corrugated cardboard versus one roll of stretch hood film).
  • Optional five- or four-side packing (closed hood and open tube).
  • Visually smooth, rain and dust-proof packing.
advantages over shrink packaging can include :
  • Up to 20% cost saving due to a higher holding force and down-gauging.
  • Reduced energy consumption as no shrinking is required.
  • Outstanding optical properties, enabling bar code reading of the labels on the appliance and eliminating the need for labels on the film.
