Milliken to focus on lighter vehicle parts at VDI Plastics in Automotive Engineering 2016


Milliken (Ghent, Belgium) is focusing on improving all-round mechanical performance and aesthetics of lightweight polypropylene (PP) and polyurethane (PU) parts to meet the requirements of the automotive industry at the forthcoming 2016 VDI Plastics in Automotive Engineering Conference in Mannheim, Germany.

At Booth 19, Milliken will showcase additives from its Milliguard range valued for advancing the performance of PU and TPU applications without contributing to VOC emissions. Milliken's polymeric technologies are 100% reactive into the PU foam or elastomer. Integrated within the final PU article during manufacturing, they avoid migration and loss of properties over time, and help to address the major issues of degradation and discoloration of PU articles due to light and heat sensitivity.
