EX Grade – High Scrubbing
EX Grade is ASACLEAN’s strongest-cleaning purging compound for thermoplastic injection molding and extrusion machines. EX Grade is glass-filled to provide excellent scrubbing of carbon and/or color deposits while especially designed to leave less purging compound residue behind.
EX Grade Purging Compound Features
- Excellent compatibility to olefinic resins.
UP Grade’s polypropylene-based purging compound is a match for those olefinic-based agents in injection molding and extrusion.
- Easily displaced by olefinic resins.
UP Grade features high-level purging to and from polypropylene-based resins within the processing temperature range.

Tips For Proper Usage Of ASACLEAN
- For maximum performance, ASACLEAN should not be diluted with other materials.
- ASACLEAN does not work by chemical reaction, so there is no soak time or hold-up time required for an effective purge. (Mechanical Purge Grades)
- ASACLEAN 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. (Mechanical Purge Grades)
