Making polypropylene better and faster


Hyperform® HPN


nucleating agents help polypropylene converters to produce consistently higher-quality products at higher speeds.


The Hyperform® HPN nucleating agents from specialty


chemicals supplier Milliken give PP processors a vital edge in today’s hyper-competitive market. Converters using this additive report 10-15% faster cycle times compared with resins containing conventional nucleating agents. Hyperform HPN aids dimensional stability in the final part, as well, while also offering easy dispersion, following the trend for high-melt- flow-rate, reactor-grade homopolymers and impact copolymers.


Hyperform HPN nucleators achieve a balanced orientation of crystal structures in PP that is proven to improve stability and reduce the resin’s warpage/ anisotropic shrinkage behavior, even in demanding injection molding applications such as caps and closures, and for parts that operate in elevated- temperature environments. HPN nucleators also

Adding Hyperform HPN to polypropylene increases the crystallization temperature and rate of crystallization, which combined with the isotropic shrinkage leads to processing benefits: reduced cooling and cycle times.


can be safely included in PP used in food-contact, medical and pharmaceutical applications. Additionally, converters processing HPN-modified resin should experience less scrap and fewer defective parts.


In short, Hyperform HPN nucleators enable polypropylene converters to produce consistently higher-quality products at high speed. The additive allows for stronger, lighter parts by increasing stiffness by about 10% when compared to conventionally nucleated PP, while still retaining the same impact behavior as a non-nucleated resin.


Processors today need to make the most of every available advantage. When it comes to turning polypropylene into precise parts, Milliken can help you do just that, while also offering efficient technical support worldwide to resin producers, compounders and converters.
