Excellent Cleaning Power for Olefins & HDPE
With high detergency, the AG Grade purge compound is glass-filled and styrene-based, making it ideal for hard-to-purge resins requiring maximum deposit removal. It’s also one of our best grades for material and color changeovers.
Purges most commodity and engineering resins.
AG Grade effectively purges most commodity and engineering resins.
|Temperature Range||200°C to 300°C (390°F to 570°F)|
|Minimum Clearance||Please speak to a Technical Sales Representative for further information on hot runner gate and extrusion die clearances.|
|Amount of Purge||Typically 1-2 system capacities (actual amount depends on degree of contamination)|
Extrusion - profile, sheet, cast film & compounding
|Types of Resin||Most commodity and engineering resins within the processing temperature range|
For maximum performance, Asaclean® AG Grade should not be diluted with other materials.
Asaclean® AG Grade does not work by chemical reaction, so there is no soak time or hold-up time required for an effective purge.
Asaclean® AG Grade works best with maximum agitation - use the maximum safe screw speed and, for thermoplastic injection molding, also use maximum safe back pressure with the screw in the most forward position.
|Color||White, translucent, or colorless|
|Other Solvent Solubility||Soluble in methyl ethyl ketone, cyclohexanone, etc. (except for inorganic content)|
|Stability||Stable under normal temperatures|
|Reactivity||Non-reactive under normal handling and storage conditions|
|Conditions to Avoid||Do not exceed recommended temperature range.
Do not allow Asaclean® AG grade to reside in barrel for ANY period of time at ANY temperature.
|Specific Gravity||1 to 1.25 at 23°C (73°F)|
|Softening Point||155-165°C (310-330°F)|
