First hybrid purging compound combining the key features in both mechanical and chemical products.
(July 2016) – The Dyna-Purge® Division of Shuman Plastics, Inc., Depew (Buffalo), NY, USA has introduced Dyna-Purge® A, a breakthrough technology engineered for Polypropylene (PP) color changes. Dyna-Purge® A combines key features of both mechanical and chemical purging products, with advanced ingredients reaching all stagnation areas breaking down the color contamination.
According to Tim Cutler, Dyna-Purge® Vice President, the company commissioned Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, of Erie, PA to conduct an extensive independent study on Dyna-Purge® A in March 2016, at the Burke Center - School of Engineering. The study compared commercial purging compounds and an in-house resin to Dyna-Purge® A. In purging and post purge results, only hybrid Dyna-Purge® A left the testing machine clean and free of contamination.
"The independent study on Dyna-Purge® A demonstrates that it is more effective than mechanical (abrasive) and chemical purging compounds for purging during Polypropylene color changes," Cutler explained. "Dyna-Purge® A saves time and money as it lowers purging costs and scrap rates."
In testing, the purging process successfully transitioned from black to natural PP in only seven shots using Dyna-Purge® A. The hybrid purging compound is engineered to exit the machine with the next production resin, leaving behind no residual purging compound. It is versatile for a variety of applications including hot runners, profile, sheet and cast film, with no minimum clearances. Dyna-Purge® A is very easy to use, with no soaking or temperature alterations required, no noxious fumes and odors, and no residual left behind. Furthermore, ingredients are safe and non-hazardous.

Dyna-Purge will be present at the K Show in Dusseldorf, Germany this October where they will be discussing the benefits of using their new Dyna-Purge® A.
