WEB EXCLUSIVE: Six new clarified PP grades for injection molding, blow molding, and thermoforming are available from Houston-based Phillips 66. The new additions to the Copylene line incorporate Millad NX 8000 clarifying agent or Hyperform HPN-600ei nucleating agent from Milliken Chemical Co., Spartanburg, S.C. These PP grades are said to offer improved aesthetics, lower processing temperatures for energy savings and faster cycle times, and enhance improved part-to-part consistency. They enable Phillips 66 to target new markets, such as pharmaceutical vials and thin-wall, single-use drink cups.
