NETSTAL to produce NX UltraClear cups using polypropylene clarified with Millad NX 8000.
WM Thermoforming Machines showcases NX UltraClear PP thermoformed packaging.
OMG srl is partnering with Milliken to showcase the benefits of thermoforming with polypropylene enhanced with Milliken’s Millad NX 8000 clarifier.
OMG will be producing date palm containers on its Machine PVE, part of its Elektra series. Featuring a four-station machine with a 200 mm stroke suitable for making deep-draw parts, OMG will run PP sheet extruded by Germany’s Mezger Verpackungen GmbH & Co. KG.
The resin supplier is France’s Polychim Industrie SAS. For this project, it is providing Mezger with its HA31XTF homopolymer grade, which offers very good antistatic properties and has a high crystallization temperature allowing for cost-efficient production, and yields balanced physical properties.
The resulting NX UltraClear PP sheet — which can only be produced using Millad NX 8000 clarifier — is lightweight and highly recyclable with a transparency and clarity normally associated with PET.
Czech machinery producer GDK spol. s.r.o. and MOL GROUP are collaborating with Milliken & Company to demonstrate the possibilities of extrusion blow molding a stylish, cosmetic bottle using the MOL GROUP’s polypropylene clarified with Millad NX 8000E.
Plastiblow S.R.L. and MOL GROUP to extrusion blow mold cosmetic bottles using polypropylene clarified with Millad NX 8000E.
Hong Kong-based L.K. Machinery is teaming up with resin supplier INEOS Olefins & Polymers Europe and Milliken to mold a geometrically complex fruit crate using polypropylene nucleated with Hyperform HPN using its new injection molding machine.
INEOS uses Milliken’s Hyperform HPN to produce its Rigidex P 450- HP60 antistatic, high-flow, high-impact PP copolymer that it has specifically designed for very fast-cycling, thin-walled injection molding applications. INEOS makes this series of resins using Innovene PP gas-phase technology, to deliver a balance between fluidity, rigidity and impact resistance.
LK will run the resin on its K stand (Hall 13/ C43) using its Forza-III press to produce the crate in cycle times under 20 seconds. The resulting product, made using a hot-runner mold, will contain 950 grams of PP.
TEDERIC teaming up with Milliken to mold an automotive part using polypropylene nucleated with Hyperform HPN at K 2019.
Yizumi will be running its new injection molding machine to make bubble tea cups using polypropylene nucleated with Hyperform HPN-715.
German-based Windsor Technologies – the European distributor of servo-hydraulic driven injection molding machines from Fu Chen – is partnering with Milliken to showcase the processability and superb properties of the MOL GROUP’s polypropylene clarified with Milliken’s Millad NX 8000 and colored with Cleartint colorants for PP.
Windsor will be running its new injection molding machine to make a cup using the MOL GROUP’s polypropylene nucleated with Hyperform HPN.
PureCycle Technologies has partnered with Milliken to advance closed-loop recycling of PP resin. By employing a patented recycling method that restores virgin-like quality to waste PP resin, packaging can go from NX UltraClear PP to NX UltraClear PP. This will enable the recycled material to become truly circular and be reused in its original application, as opposed to having to be downcycled into lower-value products.
Milliken and PureCycle will hold a joint press conference in Room 8 of Congress Center South on Friday, Oct. 18, at 10:00 am
