Performance Additives
Milliken & Company will display its performance additives for polyolefins at Plastimagen 2016, March 8-11 in Mexico City. Now in its 20th year, Plastimagen brings together more than 850 exhibitors from 25 countries to share innovation and research from the plastics industry with more than 300,000 attendees.

At booth 664, Milliken will showcase the new standard in clear packaging—UltraClear PP made with Milliken’s Millad® NX™ 8000. Utilizing polypropylene’s low density and low weight, manufacturers can benefit from creating more product with less raw material when compared to traditional plastics like PET or PS. Millad® NX™ 8000 transforms the natural milky appearance of polypropylene, resulting in glass-like transparency and packaging that far exceeds industry standards.

Millad® NX™ 8000 can be processed at lower temperatures than other clarifiers, resulting in lower energy consumption and significant cost savings, as well as faster cooler times and overall cycle time reduction.

When it comes to innovation at Milliken, Millad® NX™ 8000 is just the beginning. Our full line of performance additives includes nucleating agents and reinforcing agents for polyolefins, UV absorbers, antimicrobial additives, and antioxidant technology for urethanes.
