Asaclean plans new high-temperature purging compound, announces office move


On the heels of a "very strong 2012" and 2013 that "started even better", Asaclean Sun Plastech Inc., manufacturer of Asaclean purging compound, is hoping to maintain momentum with the planned launch of four new products this year. Asaclean VP Joe Serell told PlasticsToday at Plastec West 2013 (Feb. 10-12; Anaheim, CA) that his company is planning to launch a product that can withstand temperatures up to 800°F, as well as some grades for lower-temperature applications. Serell said a lot of the company's current success can be attributed to its existing high-temperature product, PX grade, which has been on the market for two years and works at up to 420°C.
