Milliken to feature clear DBP food-storage containers at K 2016
On Booth A27 in Hall 6 at the K 2016 trade show Milliken & Co. will be displaying and giving away clear polypropylene food containers molded by Belgian injection molder and mold maker DBP Plastic Solutions NV.
DBP Plastics develops, makes and markets a wide range of plastic food-storage products under its own DBP brand name, including storage boxes, freezer boxes, bread boxes, biscuit boxes and fruit boxes. It also produces its own colorful, contemporary premium brand called Amuse, and uses in-mold labeling to personalize private-label products for a number of well-known, international retailers.
To make the containers that will be featured at the K fair, DBP Plastics used polypropylene clarified with Milliken’s Millad® NX™ 8000 additive, which yields end products with superb, glass-like clarity. The resulting, fully transparent material — known as NX UltraClear PP — allows polypropylene to replace resins such as PET and polystyrene in a wide range of packaging applications.
Highlighting its theme of “Making polypropylene clearer, better, faster. Together”, Milliken also will demonstrate at the K show how the lower processing temperatures required when using UltraClear PP allow molders to manufacture their products faster and more sustainably.
