A new purging compound suitable to purge thermoplastics converting equipment from remaining polymer/colour and deposits which build up during the running period, has been introduced. IMCD Deutschland has announced distribution of a new product by Emery, Loxiol®. Quickclean It is a sophisticated well developed product which will save time and effort in many purging operations. The deal includes Germany, Austria and UK.
Loxiol® Quickclean 350 will reduce cleaning time and effort significantly and can be used for interims purging creating a minimum loss of production capacity and a minimum amount of scrap. The amount of waste after the purging process is low in many cases and it can be sold to a recycler or even re-used depending on the process and polymer used.

What is even better, it can be used with all common thermoplastics and in all common processing methods. It is fast and efficient, it generates no or little residue, it can be used both for purging and freezing and is economical in use. This is a perfect fit not only with our current portfolio, but also with our business strategy whereby we continually seek cleaner and more environmentally friendly products,” concludes Dr. Neis.
