Lusin® Purge Compounds Increase Productivity and Reduce Operational Costs

Lusin® purge compounds have been developed to specifically address the issues of scrap, equipment downtime and low resource utilization rates mainly resulting from color and material change-overs in thermoplastic operations. A wide range of Lusin® purge compounds have been developed to allow for an optimized approach to meeting the challenges that different polymers, processing temperatures, molding processes and equipment set-ups create.

Lusin® Clean 1060

Lusin® Clean 1060 is a highly efficient purging compound developed for the cleaning of screws, cylinders and hot runner systems used in the processing of parts made from polyolefin. Lusin® Clean 1060 is especially recommended for color or material change as well as for the removal of black spots, carbon residues and cracked materials. Lusin® Clean 1060 can be used at processing temperatures up to 290°C (550°F).

Lusin® Clean 1061

Lusin® Clean 1061 is a high efficiency purging compound developed for the cleaning of screws, cylinders and hot runner systems used in the processing of parts made from polyolefin. Lusin® Clean 1061 is extremely effective for use in performing color or material changes, as well, it is especially recommended for the removal of black spots, carbon residues and cracked materials. It is suggested that Lusin® Clean 1061 be used as freezing mixture for machine shutdown procedures during the weekends or other extended periods of machine downtime as a preventative maintenance application. Lusin® Clean 1061 can be used at processing temperatures up to 290°C (550°F).

Lusin® Clean 1070

Lusin® Clean 1070 is a highly efficient purging compound developed for the processing of parts made from PET, and is especially effective for transparent parts. Lusin® Clean 1070 is particularly recommended for color or material change as well as for the removal of black spots, carbon residues and cracked materials. It is formulated for the effective cleaning of screws, cylinders and hot runner systems.

Lusin® Clean 1090

Lusin® Clean 1090 can be used as purging compound for PC applications (color change and removal of black spots). It is also suitable for the transition from PC to PMMA without causing black spots or milky traces during the reduction of the process temperatures.

Lusin® Clean 1100

Lusin® Clean 1100 is a ready to use granular purging compound for screw, barrel, nozzle, hot-runner and gate of injection molding machines processing thermoplastic resins. Lusin® Clean 1100 is non-abrasive and can be used at processing temperatures up to 320°C (608 °F). It is most suitable for use when purging engineering plastics, polystyrene and copolymers, but is also effective in purging polyolefins, thermoplastic elastomers and urethanes, as well as high temperature thermoplastics.

Lusin® Clean 1200

Lusin® Clean 1200 is a highly efficient ready to use granular purging compound for screw, cylinder, nozzle and hot-runner of injection molding machines and for extruders processing thermoplastic resins. Lusin® Clean 1200 does not contain abrasives and is suitable for processing temperatures up to 315 °C (599 °F).  It is particularly well suited for use with plastics with a low melt flow index. It is most suitable for use when purging polyolefins, but also performs very well when used with engineering plastics, thermoplastic elastomers and urethanes. It is also suited for use in purging high temperature thermoplastics, polystyrene and copolymers.

Lusin® Clean 3010

Lusin® Clean 3010 is a non-abrasive, ready-to-use granular purging compound. It can be used for the cleaning of extrusion, cast-extrusion and blow molding lines without an accumulation head. It has been especially designed for the cleaning of HDPE MFI 0.3 / 190°C / 2.16KG which is commonly used in blow molding processes. It is most suitable for use when purging polyolefins, and crystalline resins but also performs very well when used with thermoplastic elastomers and urethanes. It is also suited for use in purging engineering plastics, high temperature thermoplastics, polystyrene and copolymers.
