NX™ UltraClear™: concentrates for clear polypropylene

NX UltraClear concentrates enable polypropylene (PP) converters to achieve the highest level of transparency in their products, while also offering opportunities for faster, more cost-effective production. NX UltraClear concentrates feature Millad® NX™ 8000 technology and are used in many thermoforming, injection molding and blow molding applications, including cups, trays, clamshells, containers, pots, foldable packaging, lids and bottles.

Unprecedented clarity in your PP process

NX UltraClear concentrates are specially designed to improve the optical properties of thermoformed, injection molded and blow molded parts. They eliminate the traditional milky appearance associated with PP, creating highly attractive, glass-clear results. The wider processing window leads to better processing conditions, including faster, more energy-efficient production during injection molding, which saves costs for converters.

Material substitution: new standards in clarity, versatility and sustainability

Due to its exceptional transparency, PP made with NX UltraClear concentrates is a viable alternative to traditional clear materials such as PET, PS and glass in a wide variety of applications. PP made with NX UltraClear brings a boost to your sales. It allows you to offer your customers real value by helping them to stay ahead of trends and display their goods effectively.

How are NX UltraClear concentrates used?

NX UltraClear concentrates are fed directly into the extruder together with the PP resin. The suggested loading range is between 0.5% and 4.5% and can be tuned depending on the targeted transparency and product selection. Our experts are available to advise converters on the right loading for optimal results.
