New purging compound for TPE processing

The product has been developed to help to solve process related problems with colour and material changes and to eliminate "black specks”. It has been NSF H2 registered, making it suitable for the manufacture of products that are subject to particularly stringent hygiene requirements. The ready-for-use granulate has been successfully tested by leading industry manufacturers, said Chem-Trend. Compared to conventional cleaning processes and products, it can lead to cost reductions of 50 - 70 % with regard to material consumption, downtimes and scrap rates. These savings may vary, depending on the manufacturing process and respective specific conditions. It is suitable for hot runners and has already been used successfully with products such as tooth brushes or hoses.
