Get your hot fill with NX UltraClear PP

Consumer convenience is king is food packaging. All brand owners recognize the need to deliver their high-quality products in easy-to-use package formats that suit the busy lifestyles of today’s on-the-go consumers. The performance characteristics of polypropylene (PP) make it the preferred material for prepared meals that can be heated in their cup or tray packaging in a microwave.

Not only does NX™ UltraClear PP – polypropylene clarified with Milliken’s Millad® NX™ 8000 – give PP exceptional clarity and transparency, but the resin also is suitable for any application where higher temperatures apply, including for hot-fill products. Retort and pasteurization is possible due to the high heat resistance, as well.

Brand owners stand to benefit by using NX™ UltraClear PP for any thermoformed cup or tray application where higher temperatures are concerned. Its excellent heat resistance and good cold-temperature performance combine to make it suitable for hot-fill and microwaveable applications, while also enabling the highly popular “fridge to microwave” concept. 

These are just some of the performance factors that make this an excellent material choice. Others include lighter weight, better molding productivity and improved sustainability.
