K 2019 overview

Here’s the low-down from K 2019

3,200 exhibitors and close to 250,000 visitors – K 2019 was a huge showcase of the latest innovations and offerings from the plastics sector.

And Mobil was at the heart of it all.

Under the ExxonMobil brand and alongside our ExxonMobil Chemical Business, we exhibited under the theme “Creating Differentiated Solutions. Together”.

We used the event to showcase our comprehensive offer for the sector and to highlight the fact that at every stage of the polymer lifecycle, lubricants are critical to the effective running of equipment.

We introduced two new high-performance products at the show:

  • Mobil DTE™ 20 Ultra Series of advanced hydraulic fluids: a range that offers up to double oil life1, helping plastics processors cut costs and increase productivity.
  • Mobil Rarus™ PE KPL Series of oils for hyper compressors: a range of high-performance oils that help protect a crucial machine used in low density polyethylene manufacturing, which operates at extreme pressure of 3,000 bar.

We are proud of the fact our expert formulators developed these new products side-by-side with customers and equipment builders from across the plastics sector. And if you missed K altogether please check out our full summary video below.

For further details on these new products or our comprehensive solutions for the plastics sector, please contact our helpdesk.

1Mobil DTE 20 Ultra Series oils have demonstrated up to 2 times longer oil drain intervals versus similar competitive oils (ISO VG 46 with a viscosity index around 100 and a zinc-based anti-wear system - meeting at least ISO 11158 (L-HM) and/or DIN 51542-2 (HLP type) requirements) in demanding Mobil Hydraulic Fluid Durability (MHFD) testing.
