(packwebasia) -- Noticeably
increasing demand towards very high clarity packaging articles at reasonable
price has led National Petrochemical Industrial Co. (NATPET) to upgrade its
range of polypropylene random copolymers.
The Saudi Arabian company has introduced two new grades in its Teldene range,
both containing Milliken’s Millad NX 8000 latest-generation clarifying agent,
aimed principally at markets for thin-walled injection molded food and non-food
containers, especially in Europe, Turkey, the Middle East, and Asia.
NATPET said, "As living standards improve in emerging markets, end-users are
putting increasing emphasis on aesthetics when buying products such as food
storage containers. The new grades cater for this demand. Additional advantage
of this grade by virtue of having Millad NX 8000 is that it enables the
converters to achieve added benefit of considerable energy and cost savings
(value for price) by processing the grade at lower temperatures and cycle times
than by similar products in the market."
