Purging Compounds for Injection Molding

Every plant operates a little differently and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all purge that addresses every processing issue for injection molders. Whether you’re a custom molder with dozens of weekly color changes and material changes, a molder in caps & closures struggling with high-cavitation hot runners, or a medical molder focused on screw pulls, Asaclean® has a high-quality purging compound designed for your specific needs.  

Here’s why Asaclean® Purging Compounds are the preferred choice for the best molding shops worldwide.

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

"Introducing Asaclean® has made a tremendous improvement at our shop. Before, it would take us up to 30 minutes just to purge one color or material before we could start a different job. Now that time is down to five to ten minutes, max. It has helped us become more efficient and has improved our start times. It is truly the best purging agent I have worked with."
Eric M. , Process Engineer Molder, Indiana
