Milliken & Company gears up for Arabplast expo

Specialty chemicals supplier Milliken & Company is set to showcase its portfolio of products and solutions at the Arabplast industry expo in Dubai.
One of the leading trade fairs for the plastics, petrochemicals and rubber sector in the Middle East and North africa (Mena) region, Arabplast will run from January 5 to 8 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
During the three-day event, Milliken will showcase how its additives can help address the key challenges confronting today’s plastics processing industry.
The company offers technology-leading clarifiers and nucleators to improve polypropylene (PP) resins, UV absorbers that improve key properties in PET packaging, and colorants for use with high-performance engineering polymers, said a statement from.
According to Milliken, it will demonstrate how its portfolio of products can enhance both production and sustainability. 
Milliken’s Millad NX 8000 is the clarifying agent used to produce UltraClear PP resin, which then can be processed to yield ultimate clarity and transparency in injection molded, blow molded and thermoformed polypropylene products. 
It also enables low-temperature processing in injection molding when compared to PP clarified with traditional clarifiers, which in turn yields both faster cycle times and energy savings, he noted.
Hyperform HPN nucleating agents provide an excellent balance of physical properties, and help to improve end-product performance, while delivering faster, trouble-free production. These additives also override the nucleating effect of pigments. This means that molders can achieve high part quality regardless of the color used.
