W. R. Grace & Co's CONSISTA C601 PP catalyst, combining with Milliken & Company's Millad NX 8000 clarifier, will further enhance the clarity, cleanliness, processability and mechanical performance of polypropylene (PP) resins, the two companies jointly announced.

Grace's CONSISTA C601 PP catalyst is the first 6th non-phthalate-based catalyst and a drop-in solution for the widely used UNIPOL PP process. It enhances not only the impact and stiffness of the material that enable lightweight, but also the taste and odor performance for food contact applications, the company introduced.

The CONSISTA catalyst also enables faster cycle times by increasing melt flow rates (MFR), while its broader molecular weight distribution improves the mechanical and processing attributes for a variety of applications.

When new generation Millad NX 8000 clarifier and CONSISTA catalyst are combined in random copolymers with a high MFR, they enable up to a 36% reduction in haze over previous generations to provide a high transparency, bright appearance and high gloss in molded parts, according to their statement.

Simultaneously, the Milliken additive also allows PP to be processed at significantly lower temperatures of 190-200°C, a reduction of up to 40°C compared to less-advanced clarifiers. These cooler temperatures shorten cooling times and thereby increase productivity by facilitating mold release.

"Combining our CONSISTA catalyst with Milliken's innovative additives yields results that are much more than the sum of these two technologies," said Ella Chen, UNIPOL PP Licensing Global Market Director.

As said, several UNIPOL PP process licensees have already started producing new PP grades with this new offering.

"Grace's technologies set the standard for polypropylene catalyst innovation and we are pleased that our next-generation clarifying agent adds significant value," commented Wim Van de Velde, Global Marketing Director, Milliken & Company. "By adding our Millad NX 8000 to resins catalyzed with CONSISTA catalyst, manufacturers can gain even greater aesthetic, processing and performance advantages."
