Milliken’s industry-leading Millad® NX™ 8000 clarifier 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. PP clarified with Millad® NX™ 8000 can be used in injection molded, blow molded and thermoformed products.
By using NX™ UltraClear™ PP resin––made exclusively with Millad® NX™ 8000 clarifier ––brand owners can produce more-recyclable, mono-material products. Additionally, they can display a UL Environmental Claim Validation(ECV) label on their packaging to indicate the steps they are taking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Officials also can discuss how strong demand is prompting Milliken to build a world-class clarifier plant in the U.S. that will boost Millad® NX™ 8000 capacity by 50%.
