Düsseldorf, Germany – IPL Inc., a leading North American producer of injection molded plastic products, showcased its two new lines of square food containers, made with Milliken & Company’s high-performance additives, at the K 2013 trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, October 16-23 at the Milliken booth (hall 6, booth #A27).
To meet customer demand for products with a lower environmental footprint, IPL has designed its new clear polypropylene (PP) Film Seal Square Line and Tamper Evident Square Line containers with multiple sustainability advantages. The company’s eco innovations include:
- Thinner walls that reduce material usage by 15 percent vs. previous designs;
- A square shape for space optimization when compared to round containers to cut fuel usage and carbon emissions in transport; and
- The use of PP, an easily recycled plastic, and the intention to use Milliken’s advanced Millad® NX® 8000 clarifier to reduce power consumption and accelerate cycle times during processing.
This partnership will support the company’s current and upcoming launches of new generation products.
