Milliken to Launch at NPE 2018 New Technologies for Maximizing the Performance of PP Impact Copolymers for Injection Molding
Ghent, Belgium – Milliken & Company will feature its extensive portfolio of additive technologies for improving the clarity, performance and processing of polyolefins at NPE 2018 in booth #S26023. The company will also launch two new products: a unique performance modifier for injection-molded polypropylene (PP) impact copolymers (ICPs), and the latest technology in its Hyperform® HPN family of nucleating agents, which is specifically designed to maximize stiffness in PP ICPs. Both of these novel technologies will significantly change the way PP ICPs perform, particularly regarding impact strength, stiffness and melt flow. Further, by improving the physical properties of post-consumer recycled resins, the new performance modifier allows converters to take greater advantage of their cost and sustainability benefits.

SABIC releases at JEC World 2018 results of lifecycle assessment of car doors made with UDMAX™ thermoplastic composite tape
PARIS, FRANCE, March 8, 2018 - SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, is releasing here at JEC World 2018 in stand L84, hall 5, the results of a recent lifecycle assessment of passenger car side doors using hybrid material solutions including laminates made with its continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composite (CFRTC), the UDMAX™ GPP 45-70 tape. The material system aims to help improve compliance with stringent energy and emissions regulations. The externally certified, cradle-to-grave life cycle assessment (LCA) found that doors made with the glass fiber polypropylene-reinforced composites outperformed metal car doors in two key environmental categories: global warming potential and cumulative energy demand. In addition to weighing significantly less than steel, aluminum and magnesium, the CFRTC parts deliver exceptional strength, corrosion resistance and the ability to be produced in high volumes using injection molding.
