Milliken Debuts at NPE 2018 Novel Nucleating Agent for Polypropylene, Delivering Highest Stiffness While Maintaining Impact Resistance

Orlando, Fla. – Milliken & Company is launching here at NPE 2018, booth #S26023, the latest addition to its growing family of Hyperform® HPN nucleating agents. Engineered for injection-molded polypropylene (PP) resins, the new Hyperform HPN-715 agent increases stiffness by up to 10 percent versus competitive materials while maintaining desirable impact performance. Optimized stiffness/impact balance enables thinner-wall designs and reduces the need for fillers, promoting weight-out, design flexibility and cost reduction. Further, this new nucleating technology provides higher heat deflection temperatures (HDTs) compared to other advanced nucleators, allowing PP to be used in microwaveable containers, vehicle under-hood components and household appliance parts.

Milliken’s New DeltaMax™ Performance Modifiers Deliver Higher Performance for Virgin and Recycled Polypropylene

Milliken & Company is introducing here at NPE 2018, in booth #S26023, DeltaMax™ Performance Modifiers, a radical advancement in additive technology for polypropylene impact copolymers (PP ICPs) and recycled polypropylene. The new masterbatches maximize the impact strength and melt flow of resins without compromising stiffness performance. These improved properties allow PP to be used in a wider range of applications in more cost-effective ways. In addition, the new DeltaMax technology is highly effective in modifying post-consumer and post-industrial recycled resins. It elevates impact and melt flow to the same level as – or better than – those of virgin resin. This unique capability allows compounders and converters to incorporate up to 100 percent recycled PP without sacrificing performance or processing. View more and related images
