Milliken & Company’s DeltaMax Performance Modifiers are a radical advancement in additive technology for polypropylene impact copolymers (PP ICPs) and recycled polypropylene. The new masterbatches maximize the impact strength and melt flow of resins without compromising stiffness performance. These improved properties allow PP to be used in a wider range of applications in more cost-effective ways.

In addition, the new DeltaMax technology is highly effective in modifying post-consumer and postindustrial recycled resins. It elevates impact and melt flow to the same level as – or better than those of virgin resin. This unique capability allows compounders and converters to incorporate up to 100 percent recycled PP without sacrificing performance or processing.

“DeltaMax solves a long-standing unmet need in the polypropylene industry, where the market has been seeking higher impact PP plastics at higher melt flow rates,” said Prem Patel, Milliken’s global business development manager. “DeltaMax simultaneously improves both impact and melt flow in PP impact copolymers and recycled resins, which now enables converters to make parts stronger, lighter and faster than before. It also improves the sustainability profile of the industry and provides a range of other processing, energy reduction and system cost benefits.

Optimizing Recycled PP

Another important benefit of the DeltaMax technology is its ability to optimize recycled PP. Until now, the limited availability of high-performance recycled streams and their variability from month to month have inhibited adoption of recycled PP. DeltaMax Performance Modifiers remove this roadblock by restoring impact and melt flow properties, enabling recycled resin to mirror or even surpass the properties of virgin PP. DeltaMax offers Milliken customers an opportunity to significantly increase recycled PP content to reduce costs and answer demands for more-sustainable materials.
