Milliken at Propak Africa 2016

Milliken at Propak Africa 2016

This week, Milliken brings its NX™ UltraClear PP technology to Johannesburg for Propak Africa, which began Tuesday and continues through Friday. With its full schedule of conferences, workshops, and exhibits, the triennial show draws more than 12,000 leaders and decision makers in the packaging industry from Africa and beyond.

NX™ UltraClear PP, made with Milliken’s Millad® NX™ 8000, features unmatched clarity in a lightweight and versatile material for food packaging that is not only efficient, but also attractive.

In addition to enhancing customer appeal, NX™ UltraClear PP provides opportunities for significant cost savings. With polypropylene’s low density and low weight, manufacturers can produce more packaging pieces with less product when compared to traditional clear plastic materials like polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polystyrene (PS).

For food packaging applications in which a sealed film is required, PET requires a special coating for film adherence, whereas NX™ UltraClear PP requires no coating, eliminating an extra production step and added costs while ensuring a more readily recyclable end product.

Ideal for nearly any type of food packaging, from trays and clamshells to cups and carafes, NX™ UltraClear PP is the clear choice for thermoformed, blow molded and injection molded applications.

If you’re attending Propak Africa this week, be sure to stop by our booth to discuss how NX™ UltraClear PP can benefit your products.
