Milliken's colorant and additive solutions on full display at Fakuma
Source:Adsale Plastics Network    Editor:JK    Date:08.Oct.2021

Milliken & Company offers ways to improve resin formulations, compounds, end products and sustainability. At Fakuma 2021, Milliken will be showcasing its portfolio, and offering access to the vast technical knowledge of its various experts.


Millad NX 8000 ECO clarifier for PP


The Millad NX 8000 ECO clarifier is the latest addition to its market-leading Millad NX 8000 product range, which is used to produce the durable, fully transparent, highly recyclable material known as NX UltraClear PP.

Millad NX 8000 ECO offers the added benefit of even faster production rates, contributing to average energy savings of 10% for the production of clarified polypropylene parts - certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).

The U.S.-based Association of Plastic Recyclers also recognizes the ECO grade for its compatibility with plastic packaging recycling. Moreover, the technology is fully compatible with PP recycling processes in Europe and poses no recyclability issues, according to RecyClass.


It also delivers tunable clarity to meet specific market needs while minimizing the risk of defects, as well as addresses concerns related to migration, especially in food-contact applications by reducing specific migration limits, or SMLs, without adding any new ingredients to the formulation.


KeyPlast and KeyPlast RESIST colorants for plastics


The KeyPlast colorants for plastics are versatile products that can be used by liquid and solid masterbatch producers, resin producers and compounders, and are suitable for use with a wide range of polymer and resins systems. The FDA-compliant KeyPlast colorant range for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) can be used to create distinctive shades in both transparent and opaque applications.

Additionally, Milliken has fine-tuned its KeyPlast RESIST colorants to perform well in extreme temperatures in various engineering polymers, including polyamides, polysulfones, PEEK and other high-heat polymers and alloys. Such materials traditionally have been more difficult to color, and often are used in demanding applications.


Hyperform HPN high-performance additives


Several grades in Milliken’s energy-saving Hyperform HPN range of performance additives for PP will also be on display at Fakuma. These additives are easy to use and reliable while also improving the performance of recycled polypropylene (rPP).

Hyperform HPN 500ei for polypropylene provides higher stiffness and improved optics for thermoforming applications such as drink cups.

They enable thermoformers and injection molders to produce stronger, lighter parts. In addition to increasing stiffness significantly when compared to conventionally nucleated resin, they also aid processing productivity and offer balanced, tuneable properties.


UL Environment & Sustainability has reviewed and certified that grades of Milliken Hyperform HPN range enabled an average of 5-8% energy savings for firms that injection mold thin-wall container lids or similar PP products, earning the products UL’s Environmental Claim Validation label.


DeltaMax performance modifiers for PP


The DeltaMax Performance Modifiers for polypropylene help contribute to a circular economy by enhancing the impact strength and melt-flow properties of rPP resins, blends and PP impact copolymers.

Applications of DeltaMax Performance Modifiers for polypropylene.

DeltaMax can raise melt flow by as much as five times while maintaining impact and stiffness properties. This allows converters to increase operating efficiencies and create more innovative part designs with easier flow through molds.


DeltaMax technology also is highly effective in modifying post-consumer and post-industrial recycled resins. It elevates impact strength and melt flow to the same levels as – or better than – those of virgin resin. This enables compounders and converters to incorporate up to 100% recycled PP without sacrificing performance or processing.
