Milliken & Company shares the distinct advantages of NX™ UltraClear PP at Packaging Innovations 2016, February 24-25 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, U.K.

Drawing over 6,500 visitors in 2015, the 2016 show brings together leaders from a range of industries and shares the latest advancements in packaging for food, personal care, pharmaceuticals, and more. The show also features seminars, debates, and symposia, and is co-located with Empack 2016 and Label&Print 2016.

At stand G64, Milliken representatives share the latest innovation for crystal clear packaging—NX™ UltraClear PP. While food packaging has long been the domain of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polystyrene (PS), food packagers can now benefit from the lightweight and sustainable properties of polypropylene (PP). NX™ UltraClear PP, featuring Milliken’s Millad® NX™ 8000, offers stunning clarity, combining the best in aesthetics and sustainability for packaging that is transparent, microwaveable, and fully recyclable.

The advantages of NX™ UltraClear PP fall in line with consumer trends. Don Rosato, publications chairman of the Plastics Institute of America, notes, “Consumers want easy-to-open, see-through, economic packaging that also protects against oxygen, water vapour and aromas.”
