Providing colorful solutions for clear PP packaging at PACK EXPO Las Vegas
The Milliken team has heard brand owners at PACK EXPO talk about the challenges of not only meeting customer expectations when it comes to clear polypropylene (PP) packaging, but of staying true to their brand in the process. We understand the importance of maintaining brand colors with clear PP packaging and have a solution: ClearTint polymeric colorants.
Milliken’s ClearTint polymeric colorants add value to clear PP packaging by delivering vivid, intense color without affecting the plastic’s clarity. The colorants can be customized to the exact match or precise shade of your brand’s color palette, and are available as a pellet color concentrate for use like any other color masterbatch. Unlike traditional dyes, ClearTint colorants disperse evenly with the polymer and will not migrate or extract. The polymer provides excellent impact chemical and thermal resistance, a good moisture vapor barrier and recyclability when used with PP.
Milliken’s ClearTint colorants have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Food Contact Notification program and are suitable for thermoforming, injection molding, injection stretch blow molding, and extrusion blow molding. These are just some of the reasons for using ClearTint colorants with NX™ UltraClear PP – polypropylene resin clarified with Milliken’s Millad® NX™ 8000 additive.
Examples of thermoformed, injection molded and blow molded packaging parts featuring ClearTint colorants’ vibrant color capabilities, including storage containers, cosmetic jars, shampoo bottles, deli containers and drinking cups, are on display in the Milliken booth (#S-7588).
