Ultra Clear PP clarified with Milliken’s Millad NX 8000 series sets a new clarity standard for PP that is comparable to glass-clear materials. Addressing the trend for efficiency and consumer appeal, is at the forefront of delivering aesthetics and lowest weight potential for thermoforming and sheet packaging, alongside further sustainability-related benefits. The clarity boost that overcomes the traditional undesirable milky appearance of PP in thermoforming, thereby creating highly-attractive transparency similar to PET for sheet and thermoformed applications such as meat trays, clamshell containers and lids. PP also offers important performance benefits such as mono-material packaging, easy seal, chemical resistance, impact resistance and heat resistance. Proven statistics support Ultra Clear PP’s productivity improvements, energy savings, low carbon footprint and cost-efficiency compared to alternative plastics. For example, at-booth samples will demonstrate its ability to offer a 17.8% weight saving compared to PET based food trays, with possibilities to produce 70 trays from 1kg of PP compared with 57 trays from 1 kg of PET.
