Williamson-Dickie Launches Innovation in Performance and Comfort with Introduction of New Work Shirt in Partnership with Milliken

Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. and Milliken & Company have collaborated under Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co.'s Dickies brand to produce an improved performance work shirt for today's modern worker. The new work shirt employs Milliken & Company's innovative textile technology to deliver enhanced lightweight, moisture-wicking and soil-release properties with the addition of stretch. Most importantly, the groundbreaking fabric technology delivers an 80% increase in breathability. The 'next generation' work shirt provides unprecedented comfort and mobility while maintaining the durability and style of a classic Dickies work shirt. The new Dickies work shirt is available in long and short sleeve, and in colors black, dark navy, charcoal and desert sand. The shirt is available for purchase now on Dickies' website,, Sears and other workwear retailers nationwide. These improvements were the result of a long-term project and partnership between Dickies and Milliken & Company, which have collaborated for more than 17 years to provide work apparel to consumers. Both companies are invested in creating advanced products with the customer's best end use and comfort in mind.

Milliken & Company Unveils Hyperform HPN 210 M for HDPE Applications

Milliken & Company has unveiled Hyperform HPN 210 M, a new nucleating agent for injection molded high-density polyethylene, or HDPE, applications. This new breakthrough technology features a unique crystalline orientation that improves the mechanical performance of HDPE to levels approaching those of polypropylene (PP) impact copolymers. The Hyperform HPN 210 M nucleator gives molders attractive new processing options for packaging and material handling applications and underscores Milliken's investment in ongoing research to benefit customers worldwide. The new additive - which specifically targets material handling applications such as waste containers, totes, crates and pallets - is the first in a family of next-generation nucleators that Milliken is developing. High-density polyethylene, nucleated with Milliken's Hyperform HPN 210 M additive, offers molders of packaging and material handling products a unique combination of benefits. Testing done according to the American Society for Testing Materials (AS D790-00) showed increased stiffness (modulus) of up to 50% vs. standard HDPE. This stiffness can enable thinner-wall designs, contributing to weight reductions of the final part. Furthermore, Hyperform HPN 210 M nucleating agent improves HDPE's heat resistance, enabling it to be molded into a wide range of products where PP is already commonly used. High-density polyethylene nucleated with the new Hyperform HPN 210 M additive boosts heat distortion temperatures by 10 - 40C, as determined by the AS D648-07 test. Milliken's Hyperform HPN 210 M nucleator further improves the processing benefits of HDPE, including higher productivity due to shorter cooling times. The new nucleator's unique ability to create lamellar crystal orientation of PE in the polymer flow (or machine) direction aids the reduction in shrinkage. Control of shrinkage and warpage contributes to an improvement in the overall quality of large, complex parts, opening the window for PE to become a potential material of choice in molds that traditionally run PP, without the need to re-tool.
