High-Value Purging Compounds
Residue inevitably builds up after color and material changes. This often leads to frustrating production challenges for operators who use traditional methods to clean their thermoplastic processing equipment. These issues affect a variety of applications such as injection molding, extrusion, blown film, and extrusion blow molding. Presented as streaks, spots, and discoloration on finished parts, these problems contribute to an unstable process. This may result in higher scrap rates, more downtime, and lower quality of finished products. All things to avoid.
The value of switching to a high-performance purging compound is clear. Chem-Trend’s advanced purging compounds undergo rigorous testing and have the backing of global R&D resources. This ensures high-performance and high-quality characteristics remain constant.
Cost efficiency is an important consideration for your process. The use of a high-quality purging compound reduces the amount of time and material required to clean a machine from color and polymer contamination or material degradation. This contributes to a more stable production process and long-term financial gains.
Ease of Transitioning
Advanced purging compounds create a smooth transition between incompatible polymers and polymers with a wide processing temperature difference. They can also solve contamination issues when used to transition to clear or transparent polymers and when changing colors. This is necessary for hot runner molds and injection molding applications.MORE
Chem-Trend has developed a broad portfolio of Lusin® brand mold maintenance products for the thermoplastics industry. This portfolio is the result of nearly 70 years of Lusin® heritage, working directly with thermoplastics processors, understanding their challenges, and creating products that address their shop floor challenges.
Our mold maintenance line encompasses:
- Cleaners (including Degreasers)
- Protective Agents (including Rust Preventatives)
Optimization of cycle time, consistency of surface finish, and reduction of post-mold operations prior to painting or gluing are all important factors in thermoplastics processing operations. Chem-Trend understands these issues. With nearly 60 years of experience developing and manufacturing some of the highest-performing mold release products around the world, for multiple industries and applications, we bring our experience, our foresight, and our hands-on approach to maximize your success.
