Squeeze every last drop out of your PP bottle

Consumers want to squeeze every last drop out of the bottled products they buy. But that is sometimes easier said than done. Not any more. 

Brand owners who use extrusion blow molded (EBM) bottles made from NX™ UltraClear PP will discover that their bottles are easier and faster to empty than other options. NX™ UltraClear PP – polypropylene clarified with Milliken’s Millad® NX™ 8000 – also gives PP a transparency boost that overcomes the resin’s traditional, undesirable milky appearance when blow molded. 

The material allows brand owners to develop lightweight bottles with integrated handles and complex, eye-catching designs that stand out on store shelves. It helps to improve gloss on both the inside and outside of bottles, while also offering good chemical resistance, design flexibility and squeezability. 

Additionally, the low density of NX™ UltraClear PP yields a lower-weight package, which offers productivity and sustainability advantages. PP can weigh 20% less than PET-based bottles, which means blow molders can produce 45 bottles from 1 kg of PP compared with just 38 bottles from 1 kg of PET.
