UltraClear PP at RosUpack 2015

Milliken Chemical will attend the 20th International Exhibition for the Packaging Industry at RosUpack in Moscow, Russia. During the June 16-19 exhibition, converters and brand owners will experience the aesthetics, application performance, and productivity improvements of UltraClear PP at Stand 309 in Hall 4 of the Crocus Expo.

RosUpack is the largest packaging industry exhibition in Russia and Eastern Europe. More than 19,000 specialists from the chemical, food, pharmaceutical, and storage industries will attend the annual exhibition while over 500 companies from 30 countries will present their packaging solutions and innovations.

Visitors to the Milliken Chemical booth can observe the low weight advantage and all-round benefits of UltraClear PP clarified with Milliken’s pioneering Millad® NX™ 8000 series and see firsthand how UltraClear PP with ClearTint® colorants offers superior deep rich shades not yet available with traditional pigment colors.

For thermoforming and sheet packaging, UltraClear PP clarified with Millad® NX 8000 sets a new clarity standard for PP. UltraClear PP overcomes plastic’s typical milky look to create highly-attractive transparency similar to PET for applications such as meat trays, clamshell containers, and lids. Recent statistics support UltraClear PP’s productivity improvements, energy savings, low carbon footprint, and cost-efficiency compared to alternative plastics.

Injection molders can also take advantage of the exceptional aesthetics, productivity gains, and energy-saving benefits of UltraClear PP clarified with Millad® NX 8000. The additive allows conversion temperatures to be lowered, particularly in injection molding, using less energy and reducing both cycle time and CO₂ emissions.

Using Milliken’s ClearTint® innovations, converters and designers have the flexibility of offering the highly saturated colors currently popular with customers as well as producing packaging that extends product shelf life. ClearTint® colors provide the clearest and brightest colors for transparent polyolefin while maintaining a glass-like appearance. In addition, ClearTint® CUV is a transparent UV absorber specifically designed for use in PP. This additive can be used to inhibit UV light transmission in injection molding, thermoforming, and blow molding. And ClearTint® colorants deliver freedom from color migration or extraction and are fully FDA compliant.

“UltraClear PP offers a host of value-adding benefits to the packaging industry, and we are looking forward to bringing these to the forefront at RosUpack 2015,” comments Dariusz Lukaszewski, Regional Manager CEE, Milliken.
