PurgeX®™ is a Mechanical Purging Agent that enables the safe, effective and efficient cleaning of plastics processing equipment.

  • Metal surfaces are cleaned using a unique scrubbing effect. The material is not abrasive to screw, barrel, die etc.
  • Particularly useful when changing colour, polymer, or when screw and barrel are carbonized. Enables rapid purging of the previous colour and/or polymer, so that machine downtime and loss of expensive polymer is minimized.
  • Suitable for injection moulding, extrusion and blow moulding processes.
  • Cost effective, as only a small amount is required, usually at 20% add rate to the polymer.
