Check Out the New Purging Compounds Knowledge Center

Get expert advice on how to solve black specks, color streaks and other quality problems.

Earlier this month we launched a new Knowledge Center on the Plastics Technology website. Sponsored by Asaclean, this Knowledge Center focuses on the matter of purging.

 

Whether you run a single extruder in a university lab, or 30 injection molding presses in a Tier 1 automotive supplier, sooner or later you will need to purge your machine. Some of these reasons are beyond your control, but one thing for certain is: which material you use to purge your screw and barrel.

 

Navigate this Knowledge Center and tap into information on purging compound basics, purging for injection molding and extrusion, purging tips on hot runners, and troubleshooting. There’s also a FAQ section and a place where you can direct a specific purging questions to an Asaclean expert.
