When changing your molding machine to run a different material and/or switching the color of the mixture, you need a purging compound that will not only remove all traces of the previous mix, including degraded material from the screw and barrel, but accomplish this with as little downtime as possible. CORATEX® liquid purging compound cleans the entire plasticator, mixed with a minimum amount of plasticizing material. It can be used immediately after the molding process to avoid costly delays in production. It will clean not only the pigments and plastic residue from the barrel and screw but, when used without a carrier, is also an excellent polishing medium for removing oxidation from metal.
Coratex purging emulsions are also useful when there is a need to purge out degraded material inside the system. It helps avoid opening of dies for pipe plant, sheet lines, multilayer plants, molding dies, etc. It can be used with any raw material or process.
Coratex is truly a proven product, deemed as one of the top purging emulsion in the world. Coratex has a small amount of abrasive material that helps lift deposits and debris much better than just a chemical or granule solution. Coratex actually removes burnt and settled deposits from the metal surfaces of your machinery.
