If this picture looks familiar then you should probably be talking to us about Aquapurge compounds.

In today's environment it is important to be able to switch colours with the minimum of down time and wastage.

Aquapurge compounds are designed specifically to help you be more productive, not only with your colour changes but also on shut down and start up.

Transforming your raw material into quality mouldings involves many aspects. Not least of course is the design of screw and cylinder.

But no matter how good the screw design is (and we would argue ours are the best!) it is still important to keep your equipment in tip top condition.

Aquapurge will help you to do this, increasing productivity, reducing costs and adding to the bottom line.

 

 

Range of Products

There are a wide range of Aquapurge compounds but here are some of the most frequently used. More details can be found by clicking on 'Visit Aquapurge'.


NEW! Barrel Blitz Universal

Barrel Blitz Universal (BBU) is a true evolution in purging. Its three primary uses are colour changes, material changes and, where it truly comes into its own, clearing carbon.

This carbon removal – by this we mean fully degraded materials and plate-out from concentrated pigments or additives – can either be done in isolation or, more importantly, every time you use the BBU for colour or material changes.

But much more than that, BBU will do the following all in one material:


NEW! Scrubber Freeze

Scrubber Freeze is a PVC-based, Ca/Zn stabilised material that acts as a carrier for Aquapurge’s proprietary holding/scrubbing compound. It can effectively remove carbon build-up from screws, barrels and nozzles in a very short time. The compound is run through an injection moulding machine or extruder – just like a normal freeze mix – and in less than an hour later the system will be clean and ready to use.

Scrubber Freeze has a broad application: it can be used in extrusion for large sheet dies – both standard and foamed PVC sheet – as well as for pipe and profile extrusion. It can also be used in injection moulding.

Scrubber Freeze shifts plate-out from dies, removes carbon build-up from screws and speeds up colour changes. Most importantly, it saves TIME – helping you to make the most of your machines, and to maximise profit.
