Milliken Chemical: Milliken Chemical: Metallocene PP resin for thermoforming

Lumicene® M3382MZ polypropylene is a metallocene PP resin from Total Petrochemicals, clarified with Milliken Chemical’s Millad® NX8000 technology, that produces thermoformed deli containers, drinking cups, lids, domes and food service trays, with clarity, gloss and side wall stiffness.

The resin expands use of low-density PP as a cost-effective and environmentally responsible replacement for other clear plastic materials, and is a clean resin that features ultra-low extractables, improved taste and odor characteristics, and complies with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations regarding food contact.
Reduced smoke and plate-out in thermoforming applications is an additional feature.
