A new chemical purging agent boasts twice the efficiency of previous products. Ampurge 103400 from Ampacet Corp., Tarrytown, N.Y., removes color deposits from molding and extrusion equipment running polyolefins or engineering resins. It can be used at up to 550 F and reportedly can do the job in only 15 to 20 min. Its improved effectiveness was reportedly demonstrated in comparative trials with up to three other chemical purges on an injection machine and an extruder. Ampacet formulated the product to be especially reactive and included a softer scouring material, which makes it less abrasive to hot runners, blow molding heads, and other sensitive elements.
