- Impact copolymers for bucket packaging: nucleating agent HPN-20E gives improved stiffness/impact balance to PP and eliminates warpage, enabling consistent buckets with excellent stacking performance. HPN-20E also improves cycle times, for PP with improved productivity benefits.
- Deep drawn thermoformed cups: polypropylene nucleated with HPN-600ei additive offers improved aesthetic benefits, stiffness/impact balance and enhanced ovality. Processors also enjoy dramatically improved processing speeds, as well as advanced physical properties and part aesthetics.
UV protection: the new performance standard for PET packaging
In the hot and dry climate of the Middle East, UV solar radiation is a particularly important consideration in the storage of goods. At Arabplast, Milliken will highlight UV protection solutions available to converters and brand owners choosing PET to package food, beverage and consumer products.
- ClearShield Colorless UV Absorbers create a new UV protection (390 nm) performance standard for PET that extends the shelf life of packaged materials and protects brand image for food, beverages and consumer products. Approved for food contact applications by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), ClearShield UV absorbers also overcome the deficiencies of traditional technologies, including unwanted color, migration, bloom and plate-out.
