Purge 2

Purge 2
Vol. 25 #2, Sept. 1998

A fast, effective purge material to use for cleaning out an extruder experiencing gels is to add a concentrate containing a polymer processing aid and antioxidant additives. Adding it to the extruder and running it for an hour, at full production rates, will help clean the extruder and die.

- Tom Butler, The Dow Chemical Co.
