Milliken & Co. (Spartanburg, SC) will feature high-performance UltraClear polypropylene (PP) for food packaging applications at Pack Expo Las Vegas. The company will showcase at its booth (#C-2256) a wide range of thermoformed packaging applications that demonstrate UltraClear PPâs superior transparency, high heat resistance and stiffness/impact balance. In addition, the materialâs low density allows for cost optimization and sustainability by using less plastic. Advanced UltraClear technology can replace traditional plastics such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polylactic acid (PLA) and polystyrene (PS) in food packaging, and is driving new designs with greatly enhanced consumer appeal.
âUltraClear PP is breaking new ground by surpassing conventional materials in existing applications and helping the packaging industry create lighter weight clear packaging,â said Emily Blair, Business Development Manager, Milliken & Co. âBy leveraging our next-generation Millad NX 8000 clarifier to enhance the desirable attributes of PP, Milliken has set a new standard of materials excellence. UltraClear PP is becoming the most attractive choice over traditional plastics and offers brand owners new ways to meet the changing demands of consumers and the marketplace.â
