Clarifying agent for polypropylene | Millad NX 8000
Millikens industry-leading Millad® NX® 8000 clarifier for polypropylene helps PP producers and converters to stay ahead of packaging, appliances, medical, houseware and food storage trends by achieving unprecedented transparency in polypropylene. The resin not only transforms polypropylene into a lightweight, crystal-clear alternative to glass, but also boosts its sustainability by enabling converters to process the material at a lower temperature, resulting in both faster cycle times and energy savings. Nearly 80% of all Clear PP uses Millad NX 8000, making it the No. 1 clarifier for PP in the world and with UL validation, its the sustainable choice for converters.
With Millad® NX® 8000E, transparency in extrusion blow molding is no longer limited to PVC or PET. Millad NX 8000E has been designed specifically to provide a step change in optical properties with standard Ziegler-Natta PP EBM resins. Millad NX 8000E enables the substitution of more expensive, less functional, or difficult to process materials. Millad NX 8000E is the is the ideal additive to bring exceptional clarity, aesthetics, lightweighting and increased sustainability to a variety of commercial packaging applications in blow molding.
Nucleating agents for polypropylene | Hyperform HPN for PP
Hyperform® HPN nucleators for PP embrace the key sustainability and performance related challenges affecting todays plastics processing industry by offering lightweight applications with high-performance features, functional solutions, higher productivity and process optimization.
At K 2019, Milliken will be introducing Hyperform HPN 715, which offers new opportunities for PP to replace more-expensive engineering resins in demanding applications. Hyperform HPN 715 delivers an optimized balance of various key factors, while also providing higher heat-deflection temperatures compared to other advanced nucleators. This allows PP to be used in microwaveable containers, under-hood vehicle components, and in household appliance parts.
Committed to Performance with Hyperform HPN for PP
Nucleating agents for polyethylene | Hyperform HPN for PE
Hyperform® HPN nucleating agent for polyethylene enables PE to be used in even more diverse packaging applications than ever before. It increases the crystallization temperature of the polymer, allowing earlier de-molding of parts, cutting cycle times and increasing productivity. In blow molding, Hyperform HPN changes the crystal orientation in HDPE resulting in barrier improvements and opportunities for downgauging in personal care, pharmaceutical, nutraceuticals, HIC and fuel applications.
Performance modifiers for polypropylene | DeltaMax
DeltaMax™ Performance Modifiers were created to help converters enhance physical (Impact strength) and flow properties of polypropylene impact copolymers (ICPs), blends and recycled polypropylene (rPP) resins – helping them to contribute to the circular economy.
The DeltaMax melt-flow modifier can raise melt flow by as much as five times while maintaining impact and stiffness properties. This allows converters to increase operating efficiencies and create more innovative part designs with easier flow through molds. DeltaMax technology also is highly effective in modifying post-consumer and post-industrial recycled resins. It elevates impact strength and melt flow to the same levels as or better than those of virgin resin. This enables compounders and converters to incorporate up to 100 percent recycled PP without sacrificing performance or processing.
Clearshield™ UV Absorbers give the ultimate protection from damaging UV light to PET packaged materials such as food, beverages and consumer products. This technology creates a new UV protection performance standard, extending the shelf life of packaged materials, protecting brand image, and allowing more sustainable formulations with natural colorants, flavors, and essences.
Colorants for UltraClear polypropylene | ClearTint
ClearTint™ colorants offer the clearest and brightest colors for transparent polypropylene and can be used as a light tint to mask residual haze or to achieve deep, rich shades. ClearTint colorants enhance aesthetics while maintaining the glass clarity look of Millad® NX™ 8000 clarified polypropylene.
Add a splash of color to your polypropylene products to bring them to life, enriching them with new dimensions, emotions, and associations.
A spectrum of bright colorants for plastics | KeyPlast
Keyplast™ is a spectrum of bright, high performance and versatile colorants for plastics that can be used by liquid and solid masterbatch producers and compounders. These colorants yield stable, reproducible colors, and are suitable for use with a wide range of resins including PET in transparent, food-contact applications, as well as other transparent amorphous polymers such as polystyrene (PS), polycarbonate (PC), acrylic (PMMA) and polysulphone (PSU).
