Milliken at Arabplast 2015
Milliken & Company will welcome polypropylene (PP) producers, converters and brand owners attending Arabplast 2015 with the promise of innovative ways to enhance the attractiveness of PP for consumer, industrial and medical applications. The innovation is not limited to PP as Milliken will also showcase a solution to protect the contents of PET packaged food, beverage and consumer products.

Milliken's additives, set to feature at Booth # 6D100, offer multiple advantages that improve the value, performance and aesthetics of customers' end-products. For PP, they set a new level in clarity and visual appeal, and enhance overall sustainability. This enables PP producers to process polypropylene materials with shorter cycle times and advanced physical properties, while creating new opportunities for product differentiation in end-use markets.

For the PET segment, Milliken offers a novel technology that allows a new UV protection performance standard for packaged contents.

At Arabplast 2015, Milliken will highlight additives for PP used for thermoformed, injection molded and extruded applications. These include:
Clarifying innovation Millad NX 8000: the new standard in PP transparency
  • Thermoforming: Millad NX 8000 clarifier provides excellent clarity in PP, enabling PP to compete with PET, PS and other glass clear materials for sheet and thermoformed applications such as pots, trays, clamshells and containers. Ultra Clear PP provides a lightweight, cost-effective and high-transparency solution for brand owners, as well as benefits such as easy seal, heat resistance, and impact resistance.
  • Injection molding: Energy savings and productivity improvements meet high clarity with Millad NX 8000 clarified PP for applications such as houseware containers, caps and closures, and medical applications.
For lightweight bottles with integrated handles and eye-catching designs, Millad NX 8500E clarified PP offers the lowest density and lower weight compared to all alternative extrusion blow molding (EBM) plastics materials and glass, and provides one-material solution cost-efficiency. Millad NX 8500E clarified blow molding PP delivers substantially better bottle aesthetics through improved clarity and gloss, a fresher look and low yellowness index, and an overall enhanced surface finish.
