CLEAR PP BOTTLE IS NOW A CLEAR OPTION

Increasingly, leading players in the industry are looking to find better alternatives for PC bottles. This is driven by a number of considerations, including highly publicized concern over BPA. Yet very few of them are completely satisfied by the price and/or transparency of the options available in the market.

Visitors to the K'2010 Fair will find that thanks to WEI LI's extensive research and experience in the clarified PP bottle production process, WEI LI now has the right solution: an automatic two-stage reheat stretch blow moulding machine for the production of clarified PP bottles in one-cavity.  Machines for multi-cavity bottle production are also available.

Since 1999, WEI LI has worked in close cooperation with Milliken to develop and improve the production of PP bottles using a two-stage reheat stretch blow moulding process.  Throughout the past decade, both WEI LI and Milliken have supported many customers, as they shifted from PC to clarified PP for their bottle production, with minimal investment in machinery and moulds. Market response to date has been very promising.

Most recently, Milliken launched Millad® NX8000, a new clarifier that takes clarification of PP to the next level by delivering a 50% reduction in haze compared to the current industry standard, thus making highly transparent PP a reality.

To demonstrate the wide range of applications for clarified PP bottles, WEI LI will show a comprehensive clarified PP bottle sample collection at their K 2010 booth # B82 in Hall 13.
