WM Thermoforming Machines and Milliken Partner for Clearer PP 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 small, clear, thermoformed bowls. 

At Booth A16 in Hall 3, WM Thermoforming Machines has been producing bowls with an outside diameter of 115 mm, ideal for dairy products. The small, clear bowls are thermoformed on WM’s Twist 700, which features a new stacking concept that has debuted at K called the MSv7 stacker. The bowls are made from a PP resin clarified with our Millad® NX™ 8000 additive, resulting in the 630-micron-thick NX UltraClear PP sheets that WM is processing on the Twist 700. NX UltraClear PP not only allows for glass-like clarity in PP parts, but also a lower carbon footprint with a lighter weight than PET.
