UL certified that four grades of Milliken Chemical’s Hyperform HPN enabled an average of 5-8 percent energy savings for firms that injection mold thin-wall container lids or similar PP products.

Spartanburg, S.C.–Milliken Chemical has long said that its Hyperform® HPNTM performance additive for polypropylene (PP) offers significant energy savings to injection molders during processing–a claim that has now been independently verified by UL LLC.

UL Environment & Sustainability, a unit of the global UL group, confirmed recently that it has reviewed and certified that four grades of Milliken Chemical’s Hyperform HPN enabled an average of 5-8 percent energy savings for firms that injection mold thin-wall container lids or similar PP products. This certification applies to the Asia region, but can be extended to a global recognition, Milliken said in a press release.

Milliken does not plan to stop there. “We do have plans to pursue UL certification for additional nucleators in various applications,” including for other processes, such as thermoforming, according to Bhavesh Gandhi, global product line manager, Hyperform, for Milliken’s Chemical Business.

Milliken sees this as the latest step in its ongoing mission to help its customers reduce their impact on the environment. Milliken’s Millad® NX® 8000 clarifier for polypropylene was the company’s first product to gain energy savings-related certification from UL. Within its nucleation portfolio, Hyperform HPN products are the first products to gain such a distinction.

Hyperform HPN is reported to provide the possibility of faster productivity via reduced cycle times, along with the proven energy savings. It is also said to improve the performance of recycled PP, enabling greater use of rPP in various applications.
