Millad® NX™ 8000 for Thermoforming
Clear Polypropylene for Sheet Extrusion and Thermoforming
With the introduction of Millad® NX™ 8000 for Thermoforming, transparency in sheet extrusion and thermoforming is no longer limited to PET and PS. Millad NX 8000 has been designed specifically to provide a step change in optical properties of polypropylene (PP) sheet and thermoformed parts. PP clarified with Millad NX 8000 enables the substitution of more expensive, less functional and less sustainable materials. Commercial packaging in NX™ UltraClear PP is now available from our partners.

Millad NX 8000 for Thermoforming needs to be directly fed into the extruder together with the PP resin. The suggested loading range is between 0.4% and 0.5% and can be tuned depending on the targeted transparency. Please contact Milliken for recommendations for optimal results.
