What should I do with the PurgeMax® scrap?

PurgeMax® scrap can be handled in three ways:

  1. It can be sold to the scrap collectors.
  2. It can be reused as a carrier for the future of cleaning purposes.
  3. It can be reused for a darker colour parts.

 

Does PurgeMax® leave a residue after purging?

No, PurgeMax® does not leave any residue because it does not stick to any kinds or metal.

 

 How much is the consumption of PurgeMax® needed for each purge with Injection Moulding Machines?

Refer to PurgeMax® Usage Chart printed on the bottom of the packing box.

 

 Is it safe to purge Hot Runners with PurgeMax®?

Yes, PurgeMax® is designed to clean Hot Runners and manifold. In many cases, it can also be moulded. We have two different procedures for purging Hot Runners, with mould open and with mould closed.

 

Is there any concern of PurgeMax® reacting to kinds of the materials process?

Not that we are aware of.

 

What should I know about purging heat sensitive resins?

PVC and material with FR filled are heat sensitive resins. Carbonization due to heat oxidation can lead to degradation within just a few minutes. Therefore, we recommend to you not to empty the barrel. PurgeMax® should be introduced at the end of the resin run by adding the PurgeMax® on top of the resident resin in the hopper then followed by purging material. Continue to purge until the resin appears to be natural and clean.

 

Does PurgeMax® contain any expansion agent?

Yes, PurgeMax® contains heat activator ingredient which helps to clean the screw and barrel more efficiently.

 

 Do I need to adjust the temperature profile?

Either maintain or increase 10% more.

 

What is the lifespan of PurgeMax®?

2 years from manufacturing date.

 

How do I know that the PurgeMax® solution in the barrel had finished?

It happened when the resin is clear and there is no bubble in the resins anymore.

 

Is PurgeMax® safe to be left in the barrel overnight?

Yes, Purgemax® is safe to be kept overnight.

 

Do I need to use specific material with PurgeMax®?

No, you may just follow the current purging resin used with PurgeMax®.

是的, PurgeMax® 可以用于清洗所有热塑性材料的注塑,挤出,吹塑等应用。

 

PurgeMax® 可以同时用于注塑吗?

可以。PurgeMax® 是可以用于注塑的,非常安全而且不会损伤模具。

 

使用PurgeMax®与常规清洗化合物相比可以节省多少成本?

根据我们的案例测试和客户的回复,PurgeMax®可以帮助客户节省多达80%左右的时间成本, 减少多达85%的清洗树脂成本。

 

PurgeMax® 有腐蚀性吗?

没有, Purgemax®使用的是表面活性剂应用技术来进行清洗, 所以没有腐蚀性。

 

PurgeMax® 可以用来去除黑点/炭黑结构吗?

可以, PurgeMax® 是可以做到。但是基于不同的机器特点,具体的情况可能会不同。所以我们建议定期使用

PurgeMax® 来清洗机器, 无论是在颜色更换,树脂材料更换,在停机或启动机器                期间, 它将逐渐减少黑点/炭黑的问题。

 

PurgeMax® 浸泡在料筒里的时间需要多久呢?                                                                    

PurgeMax®无需浸泡。允许PurgeMax® 浸泡超过1分钟将不会提高其性能。

 

PurgeMax® 过FDA 认证吗?

暂时没有,但是我们已经计划在近期申请。

PurgeMax® 会否对各种类型树脂在加工过程中有什么不良反应吗?

就目前所知是不会的。

 

对于清洗热敏感树脂,需要注意什么?

PVC和防火材料属于热敏感树脂, 可能在几分钟之内由于热氧化而碳化。因此,我们建议您不要清干料筒,将PurgeMax®直接放在有残余树脂的料筒里, 然后再放入清洗树脂, 连续清洗直到树脂呈现本色或干净为止。

没问题的, Purgemax® 是可以安全地在料筒里存放过夜。

 

需要特别指定一些清洗树脂来配合 PurgeMax® 的使用吗?

不需要, 平常清洗用的树脂即可。然而根据我们以往的经验, PP, HDPE 及 Cast Acrylic 的使用效果较好。
