Applications

Ultra Purge™ is highly recommended by major machine and colorant producers as the most cost-effective and efficient solution for cleaning screws, barrels and hot runners.

Ultra Purge™ performs excellent within injection molding machines. Our special Ultra Purge™ technology effectively cleans screws, barrels and hot runners and thus helps to minimize down time during color changes and in removing black specks. Working through a chemical reaction it loosens resin, color and carbon deposits with only a small quantity of material. This is why Ultra Purge™ is so cost-effective.

The most common Ultra Purge™ grades used in the automotive industry are Ultra Purge™ PO, Ultra Purge™ 5150 and Ultra Purge™ 5160. Ultra Purge™ PC and Ultra Purge™ PMMA are also highly useful grades for automotive headlight and taillight producers. Ultra Purge™ PO is very efficient in cleaning the screws, barrels and hot runners during color changes with PP. By using Ultra Purge™ PO for this application, customers experience up to a 50% reduction in scrap and up to an 80% reduction in down time. Ultra Purge™ PC and Ultra Purge™ PMMA are designed to specifically clean PC and PMMA as well as PC/ABS. These grades are normally used for removal of carbon contaminations when producing clear parts such as light lenses as well as with material changes.

Ultra Purge™ PET-E is formulated to specifically clean injection molding machines that produce PET preforms. An innovative component allows Ultra Purge™ PET-E to be efficient during color changes and during the removal of black specks. The two problems are often related to each other and can be easily solved by using Ultra Purge™ during every color change and as part of a preventive maintenance program with a prescheduled frequency. Using Ultra Purge™ typically reduces production scrap by up to 60% and down time by as much as 70%. Ultra Purge™ PET-E can also be used to safely clean most hot runners. We highly recommend following our procedures and to contact us prior to the first usage of Ultra Purge™ to achieve optimal results for this application.

After prior consultation with Chem-Trend’s Ultra Purge™ technical experts, most Ultra Purge™ grades can be safely and efficiently used to clean hot runners. The user will have the option to purge the machine with the mold open or closed. Purging the hot runners with the mold open is recommended to achieve optimal results when facing a very difficult color change. Ultra Purge™ can be injected through very small hot runner gates. Ultra Purge™ is also recommended by major machine and colorant producers as a safe and cost effective solution to keep the hot runners clean. Cleaning hot runners with Ultra Purge™ will reduce scrap and down time during color changes. Please contact us for a free consultation or to request a free sample.

Ultra Purge™ has several grades that are specifically recommended to clean blow molding machines with or without accumulators. A unique expanding agent is part of our distinctive technology and it allows Ultra Purge™ to reach all “dead spots” inside the accumulators and the extruder. Please contact us to obtain a free sample or receive free consultation.

Based on the extruder design and material used, most Ultra Purge™ grades can be used to clean the extruder's barrel, screw and head. After consultation with Chem-Trend’s Ultra Purge™ technical experts, the suitable Ultra Purge™ grades for your cleaning challenge can be found.
