Milliken Showcases Clarifying and Nucleating Agents at Chinaplas 2016

Milliken will feature its advanced polyolefin additives at Chinaplas 2016 in Shanghai, China, April 25-28. Chinaplas features top exhibitors from the plastics and rubber industries and attracts more than 100,000 visitors. 2016 marks the 30th edition of Chinaplas, and visitors can look forward to a number of celebratory activities incorporated into the four-day event.

Visitors to Milliken’s booth N2M21 will be given a first-hand look at our latest technologies, including NX™ UltraClear PP made with Milliken’s Millad® NX™ 8000. Known for its outstanding clarity and improved sustainable properties, lightweight NX™ UltraClear PP is suitable for use in nearly any food packaging application, including cups and lids, sealable trays, and handled bottles. NX™ UltraClear PP is compatible with all types of blow molding, injection molding, and thermoforming processes.

Also on display will be Milliken’s Hyperform® family of nucleating agents, which allow for improved use of polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) in range of applications, including automotive components, packaging, and caps and closures.

  • Hyperform® HPN-600ei: Designed to increase stiffness and reduce warpage while maintaining clarity, Hyperform® HPN-600ei is ideal for food packaging and houseware applications such as cups and trays.
  • Hyperform® HPN-68L: Allowing for quicker processing speeds without sacrificing quality, Hyperform® HPN-68L reduces warpage in polypropylene products ranging from appliance parts to garden furniture.
  • Hyperform® HPN-20E: Bringing improved stiffness/impact balance to polypropylene and polyethylene applications, Hyperform® HPN-20E reduces warpage while providing overall property improvement. Hyperform® HPN-20E performs well in all temperature conditions, creating the opportunity for material downgauging and reduced cycle times. 
  • Hyperform® HPN 210 M: Improving the mechanical performance of HDPE, Hyperform® HPN 210 M enables lower and balanced shrinkage, reducing cycle times and resulting in better part performance.
