OMG Meat Tray - K 2016

OMG Producing NX™ UltraClear PP Meat Trays at K 2016

Under our K 2016 theme “Making Polypropylene Clearer, Better, Faster. Together”, we’ve partnered with resin producers and machinery makers to display the power of our additives for polypropylene parts. You can find Millad® NX™ 8000 in thermoformed, blow-molded, and injection-molded applications throughout the show at our partner booths, including these clear meat trays. 

At Booth D06 in Hall 3, Italian machinery supplier OMG srl is producing polypropylene (PP) meat trays on its Elektra PVE thermoforming machine. Using both vacuum- and pressure-forming technology, the Elektra PVE is energy efficient and suited for medium to high volumes of production. The resin used in the meat trays has been clarified with Milliken’s Millad® NX™ 8000 additive, which brings the glass-like clarity normally associated with PET to PP packaging applications. Millad NX 8000 can be used in cups, trays, clamshells, and foldable containers and is more lightweight and heat resistant than alternative materials.
