REINFORCING AGENTS FOR POLYOLEFINS Polypropylene


Hyperform® HPR-803, a new additive from Milliken, is a reinforcing agent designed primarily to enable comparable performance with
lower weight versus other competitive mineral fillers such as talc. Industries such as automotive face growing pressures to reduce weight
and improve fuel economy. More and more manufacturers are turning to lighter weight polyolefins to meet these demands. HPR-803 also
offers the added benefit of having the ability to provide an excellent surface finish. Hyperform reinforcing and nucleating agents offer a
variety of solutions to polyolefin processors to improve quality, productivity, and meet increasingly strict specifications of industries such
as automotive and appliance.

HPR-803 exhibits excellent modulus enhancement creating Similar to better impact performance at comparable
opportunities for lighter weight and/or stiffer resins. stiffness levels leads to a better physical property balance.
Note: Density for Talc at 30% in PP = 1.13 g/cm3
Density for HPR-803 at 10% in PP = 0.96 g/cm3
