    • Cleaning hot runners (including high cavitation molds)
    • Cleaning dies (with easy displacement) in extrusion
    • Clear applications that require no residue issues
    • Effectively cleaning out blow molding equipment

     

    Benefits

    • Heat-activated concentrate ideal for hot runners and low flow areas
    • Extremely effective compatibility with all resins
    • Excellent cleaner with low-residue formula
    • Matches MFR of your processing resins
    • Tailor purging power using concentrate ratio based on your needs
    • Leads to significant savings on shipping and storage
    • Excels in injection molding, extrusion, & blow molding

    Applications

    Usage Information

    Temperature Range 175°C-360°C (345°F-680°F)

    Applications Extrusion - profile, sheet, cast film & compounding
    Injection Molding - including hot runners
    Types of Resin Most commodity and engineering grade resins within the processing temperature range

    Tips

    • The optimum loading is 20% of Asaclean® PLUS mixed with production resin of choice. If production resins are not desirable you can use it as a blend with any low-melt olefin such as HDPE or PP
    • Soak 10-30 minutes, depending on specific application.
    • Increase temperature in trouble spots 30°C to 55°C (50°F to 100°F)
    • Maximum cleaning achieved at 260°C to 315°C (500°F to 600°F) within the processing temperature range.

    Conditions to Avoid Do not allow Asaclean® PLUS grade to be left idle in barrel for more than 30 minutes at temperatures higher than 300°C (570°F).
    Do not feed only Asaclean® PLUS in barrel. It is designed to be used as a mixture with production resin and not by itself in the barrel. Do not exceed recommended temperature range.
