The Universal Selection Source: Plastics & Elastomers

Milliken
A new generation of Clear PP is available for transparent applications: it provides a cost-competitive, sustainable solution and delivers higher performance and easier processing versus other transparent materials.

Easier Processing

Broad Processing Ability
Broad Processing Ability...
This new generation of clear PP can be processed using all available technologies (injection molding, blow molding, extrusion, and thermoforming) and can be processed at lower temperatures (200°C vs 230°C) making available potential productivity gains as well as energy savings. It allows plastics converters and product designers to create attractive parts or plastics packaging that further enhance product appeal regardless of the part design or process used.

Hot Filling...
Clear polypropylene is much more heat-resistant than PET, making hot filling easier. Above 80°C, PET typically loses its integrity. PP can withstand temperatures up to 130°C, making it the material of choice for products such as syrup and juice drink bottles.
