Milliken Partners with GDK and MOL GROUP at K 2016
At K 2016, Milliken is partnering with polypropylene (PP) resin producers and machinery manufacturers to showcase the innovative possibilities for polypropylene made fully transparent with Millad® NX™ 8000—known in the market as NX™ UltraClear PP.
Visitors to Booth C04 in Hall 14 will find Czech machinery producer GDK spol. s.r.o. manufacturing sports drink bottles on its GM 751 E blow molding machine. The bottles will be made from MOL GROUP’s TIPPLEN R 660 polypropylene—a resin suitable for food contact—and clarified with Millad NX 8000.
The resulting bottle will highlight the possibilities for material replacement in PC and PET applications such as baby bottles and personal care packaging. In addition to the clarity and gloss of NX UltraClear PP, the material allows for more detailed designs by incorporating handles or soft-touch. Bottles made from NX UltraClear PP also empty faster than those made from alternative materials.
Milliken’s partnership with GDK and MOL GROUP falls under its theme for K 2016 of “Making Polypropylene Clearer, Better, Faster. Together.” At Booth A27 in Hall 6, K 2016 visitors will find information about Milliken’s clarifiers and nucleating agents for PP as well as a range of additives for PE, PET, and PU.
