(Image source: Orpic)Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic) has launched a new thermoforming grade called Luban HP1151K that is set to increase both productivity and the overall performance of transparent thermoformed cups, trays and containers

The new PolyPropylene thermoforming grade is based on Milliken's nucleating innovation Hyperform® HPN-600ei.

Orpic’s Luban HP1151K is based on the latest technology available to offer the food packaging and household storage solutions industries a new benchmark in high-quality PP.

Apart from being able to increase the number of articles that can be produced, the high quality finished products provide good stacking performance. It also provides a broad processing window that opens up distinct product quality and consistency advantages plus the all-important productivity benefits for converters.

Additionally, the grade delivers optimal environmental and handling-related advantages associated with using lightweight PP compared to other materials.

Gilles Rochas, general manager for polymer at Orpic, said, “The product has a good resin base and tests conducted so far have been successful. Luban HP1151K reduces haze in the product and increases clarity and gloss.”

Luban HP1151K is expected to offer Oman and the international packaging customers an opportunity to reduce their cycle times and achieve better results through less wastage whilst offering all-round productivity improvements, Rochas added.

Hyperform HPN-600ei also offers good organoleptic with no contamination risk making Luban HP1151K suitable for food applications.
