Why Asaclean® is the Best Choice for Industrial, Commercial, & Construction Applications

When we hear from processors making commercial or industrial parts, they usually are asking for help with a handful of different processing issues.

If you’re reading this section, then you’ve probably experienced some of these struggles firsthand:

  • You’re dealing with black specks and contamination
  • You cannot afford unpredictable or lengthy color or material changes
  • Your screw pulls keep you from running good parts
  • You experience difficult start-ups after weekend shutdowns
  • Sometimes streaks appear seemingly out of nowhere

If you try to cut corners to hit deadlines, you might end up with defects and customer complaints that can jeopardize your contracts moving forward.

Many processors in your industry assume that these headaches are an inevitable part of the job.

We have good news. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Asaclean® is working exactly the way we hoped it would. We have been able to cut down our scrap by 30% on one job alone. The techs seem to like it for the color changes. We did order a barrel of it and will start to use on other jobs as we go along. Thank you once again for checking in. Your product has given great value to our organization.”

With the world-class R&D team of Asahi Kasei in Japan, Asaclean® offers incredible cleaning performance coupled with expert technical & product support.

For most molders, we usually recommend Asaclean®’s legacy line of Mechanical Purging Compounds.

Mechanical Purging Compounds are compounded specifically to match your processing temperatures, your resins, your MFR’s, and your processing needs. Mechanical Purging Compounds depend on your machine’s power to do the work. They perform best in injection molding and other high-pressure applications. This is because they rely on pressure and agitation to clean out the previous resin or any contamination within your machine.

Unlike regrind or virgin resins, Mechanical Purging Compounds are designed to clean. They have strong detergency and have no affinity to metal. This guarantees your machine will be running clean in no time.

Asaclean® offers a full line of Mechanical Purging Compounds for all processing situations.

With that said, every situation is different.

High-cavitation hot runners are better suited with a Purging Concentrate like Asaclean® PLUS Grade because PLUS supercharges your own processing resins and is easily displaced. This is a huge innovation in purging that’s made an immediate impact since PLUS was launched in June 2021.

We’re very happy with Asaclean®’s high-temp Grades.  We save time and money by being able to purge our high temperature process right after we finish the molding job, have confidence that our machine is clean and we have little to no rejects when we start our next run.”
