Shuman Plastics Inc.'s Dyna-Purge division has introduced an improved Dyna-Purge C clear, non-abrasive, non-chemical purging compound for high clarity resins.
The Depew, N.Y., company says the new product is formulated to purge without leaving a residue.
“In a survey of plastic processors, over 78 percent of respondents stated that they run clear and transparent resins with nearly 50 percent experiencing issues with “milky drag,” explained Dyna-Purge business manager Tim Cutler.
The new grade has a temperature range of 380-590° F and is suited to injection molding, extrusion, compounding and blow molding. It can purge through hot runners and other tight clearances, and improves changeover times, according to the company. The ingredients are Food and Drug Administration compliant.
