Plastictecnic of Malaysia has responded to a perceived distrust of PVC by manufacturing baby feeding bottles from clarified polypropylene using a reheat stretch blow molding technique. The squeezable bottles are completely translucent and odorless.

Plastictecnic uses polypropylene clarified with Millad 3988 from Milliken Chemical. The clarifier was first suggested to the molder by its machinery supplier, Founder Machinery Co. Ltd. (China), to stabilize the polypropylene. Plastictecnic also found the additive helped reduce rejection rates since it makes the random copolymer resin much easier to process during the stretch blow molding stage.

“Our new bottle is crystal clear, has no odor, can withstand high temperature, is non-toxic and recyclable,” says Walter Phoon of Plastictecnic. “The bottles are much easier to process and the odorlessness of cPP — which is of utmost importance — is unmatched by competing products. Those characteristics make our product a competitive alternative to PVC baby bottles.”
