Millad® Clarifying Agents
Taking functionality to a new level, this newest clarifying agent creates a superior polypropylene product with revolutionary clarity.
Millad® NX® 8000 is Milliken's fourth generation clarifying agent. This clarifying agent creates a superior polypropylene product without the limitations of less functional clear materials. It also increases the beauty of current polypropylene materials, allowing even thicker parts to approach the clarity of glass or amorphous polymers. In addition, these polypropylenes are easy to use in energy efficient operations. The advantages of Millad NX 8000 clarified polypropylene include:
- Beautiful: Millad NX 8000 enhances the aesthetic appeal of polypropylene materials, allowing even thicker parts to approach the clarity of glass or amorphous polymers.
- Sustainable: Millad NX 8000 clarified polypropylenes are not only lightweight and recyclable, but promote energy efficient operations, thanks to application at lower temperatures.
- Efficient: Polypropylene processing with a Millad NX 8000 clarifier is flexible and simple. Lower temperature injection saves manufacturing costs, and shorter cooling time saves production time, resulting in boosted productivity.
- Applicable: Millad NX 8000 supports a broad range of applications, including food storage, home storage, appliances, baby bottles, water bottles, cosmetics bottles and jars, media packaging, office supplies, and blister packaging.
- Recyclable: Polypropylene plastics are easier to recycle than almost any other plastic. Polypropylene even flows more easily as it degrades, without cross-linking, gel forming, or offgassing.
