New Chem-Trend Ultra Purge™ C6090 Offers Customers a Complete, Flexible Solution for PC and PMMA
Chem-Trend, a world market leader in developing and manufacturing high-performance purging compounds, release agents, and other process chemical specialties, today released Chem-Trend Ultra Purge™ C6090, a new, cutting-edge thermoplastics purging compound product. Primarily used in the manufacturing process of automotive headlamp and rear-lamp lenses, this innovative product offers customers a single purging agent that minimizes quality issues and creates a more consistent, simple, and efficient process.
“For customers using one machine to manufacture both headlamp and rear-lamp lenses, this product allows for one complete purging agent,” said Antje Scholl, Business Development Director – Thermoplastics, Chem-Trend. “Ultra Purge™ C6090 can greatly improve the quality of final products, and will contribute to overall waste reduction. Plus, the need for one purging compound versus two will improve process efficiencies and upstream resources.”
This flexible solution also overcomes common industry issues associated with color change in PC, or processing PC at high temperatures and switching to PMMA at low temperatures.
Ultra Purge™ C6090 is a complete purge compound solution for polycarbonates and acrylics. This product allows for a smooth transition between the PC processing temperature from 280°C to 320°C (536°F to 608°F) and of PMMA from 190°C to 270°C (374°F to 518°F). It prevents issues related to either freezing PC at PMMA processing temperatures or burning PMMA at PC processing temperatures with the consequence of black specks.
Chem-Trend continues to research and develop new technologies to meet customer needs now and over the long term. Ultra Purge™ C6090 provides customers with significant performance improvement and a more efficient path forward.
