Purging Hot Runners in the Thin-Wall Packaging Industry

June 30, 2021 |

Purging tools that are molding thin-wall containers and lids can be a challenging task for many injection molders.

In order to purge these types of tools, an injection molder must use a purge compound that is efficient at removing color from the hot runners and is also easily molded and ejected from the tool. The Ultra Purge 1000 series was developed specifically for purging thin-wall parts on stack tool applications for the packaging industry.

Agenda:

  • Commercial purge benefits
  • Types of commercial purge compounds
  • Unique challenges when purging thin-wall packaging applications
  • Ultra Purge 1000 series
