At the K 2019 trade fair on Oct. 16-23 in Düsseldorf, Germany, see Orpic’s Luban polypropylene (PP) sheet roles, and MEAF’s extruder, suitable for PP.
In a partnership for performance and sustainability Milliken is collaborating with Oman’s Orpic and the Dutch machine company MEAF to produce more recyclable products. Orpic’s Luban HP1151K PP is a homopolymer polypropylene for high transparency thermoforming applications with enhanced optical appearance. The grade is nucleated with Hyperform HPN and also contains antistatic agent. It provides enhanced process ability with excellent isotropic shrinkage control.
Luban HP1151K increases both productivity and the overall performance of transparent thermoformed cups, trays and containers. It combines high clarity and aesthetics with a new level of superior dimensional stability for thermoformed products. Luban HP1151K is based on the latest technology available to offer the food packaging and household storage solutions industries a new benchmark in pure, high quality PP.
Apart from being able to increase the number of articles that can be produced, the high quality finished products provide good stacking performance. It also offers a broad processing window that opens up distinct product quality and consistency advantages plus the all-important productivity benefits for converters.
Additionally, the grade delivers optimal environmental and handling-related advantages associated with using lightweight PP compared to other materials.
The Luban sheet rolls on display include 100% Orpic Luban HP1151K PP grade. MEAF’s 90 mm extruder with IV-Measurement and an IV-Increase system will also be on display at their stand (Hall 17 / A22) along with the polypropylene cups made with the Orpic grade.
