About us

Delivering the next generation of thermosets

At ExxonMobil we use advanced polymer technology to produce a new range of thermoset systems designed to outperform existing options. Our ProxximaTM products overcome traditional tradeoffs to deliver lighter-weight material with a superior balance of strength and toughness.

Our products

Proxxima™ polyolefin thermoset systems

ProxximaTM polyolefin thermosets enable an exceptional balance of strength and toughness, resulting in improved fatigue performance. Better still, they’re 7-10% lighter than their epoxy and polyurethane alternates, with great resistance to harsh chemicals and hot, wet environments.

Application methods

Proxxima™ application methods

ProxximaTM resin systems deliver gains across the value chain in the composite, casting, and coatings markets. Specifically, our super-low-viscosity and controllable fast cure can streamline production across a broad set of applications. Even better, often these production efficiencies can be reached with minimal changes to conventional processing equipment.

    Proxxima™ polyolefin thermoset resin systems

    Our resin formulations are based on cyclic C5 monomers and other proprietary monomers and additives. Our catalyst formulations have strong foundations in Nobel Prize-winning technology developed by Professor Robert Grubbs and his research team. This powerful combination produces polymers that have the capability to outperform today’s solutions across a broad set of everyday applications such as wind turbine blades, electric vehicle parts, sustainable construction, and anticorrosion coatings.
