Significantly Reduce Downtime with our Unique Line of Purge Products
The singular focus of purging compounds is to reduce equipment and manpower downtime when making a color or material change. With consistent use, purging compounds significantly reduce scrap on both color and material changes that, in turn, creates major savings in both hard and soft costs.
Injection-molding equipment can be cleaned with in-house or virgin materials. However, it takes a lot of material and time to effectively complete the transition. Chem-Trend’s purging compounds are up to twenty times more efficient at color or material changeover than these other solutions -- translating into greater operating efficiency and lower operating costs for thermoplastic processors.
40 years of experience with purging compounds
Our experience in the development of safe, high efficiency, specialized purge compounds targeted at specific applications started back in the 1970s. At that time, our Lusin® brand had already been in the marketplace for two decades and was well established for providing high quality thermoplastic processing aids throughout Europe. In fact, Lusin® brand purge compounds were some of the first purge compounds ever to be introduced into the thermoplastics processing industry.
Today, our purging compounds have been specifically developed to efficiently support thermoplastic operations
