Ultra Purge™ Purging Compounds

Purge compounds are extremely important for modern thermoplastics processors, and the use of purging compounds that are designed specifically for operational processes and parameters can provide a significant competitive advantage. Eliminating carbon buildup in screw and barrel assemblies, as well as on die sets, has a significant impact on processing efficiency, scrap rates, die life, and equipment maintenance. Reductions in color or polymer change-over times can significantly enhance operational margins by increasing equipment and labor uptime, allowing organizational assets to be more fully leveraged toward providing complete value to the manufacturing process.

Chem-Trend’s Ultra Purge™ brands of purge compounds cover a wide array of process applications, polymers, operating temperatures, and equipment types. They have been specifically developed to address the challenges faced by thermoplastics processors and add significant value to their operations.
