CHEMICAL GRADES

OUR PREMIUM PRODUCT LINE FOR CHALLENGING APPLICATIONS

For most severe color changes or to remove carbon build up, you cannot compare the high performance of chemical purging that works by breaking down the molecular structure of plastic cleaning down to the bare metal.

MECHANICAL GRADES

OUR GENERAL PURPOSE MECHANICAL PRODUCTS – WITH OR WITHOUT FOAMING AGENT TO REACH NEGATIVE FLOW AREAS.

PE based, fortified with non-abrasive scrubbing and stiffening agents to scrub metallic surfaces clean of old resin, color and degradation that builds up on the screw. They are most effective and easy to use; just run them through the machine until the purgings are clear of contamination.
