Our approach to working hand-in-hand with the industry and our customers to generate solutions that overcome their production challenges is behind the wide range of products we have developed for thermoplastics processing. Our portfolio is focused on the goal of increasing quality and productivity while minimizing any adverse impact on the environment, thus adding overall value to our customers’ bottom line.
We serve the thermoplastics industry through our Lusin® mold maintenance products and our Ultra Purge™ purging compounds.
Purge compounds are extremely important for modern thermoplastics processors, and the use of purging compounds that are designed specifically for operational processes and parameters can provide a significant competitive advantage. Eliminating carbon buildup in screw and barrel assemblies, as well as on die sets, has a significant impact on processing efficiency, scrap rates, die life, and equipment maintenance. Reductions in color or polymer change-over times can significantly enhance operational margins by increasing equipment and labor uptime, allowing organizational assets to be more fully leveraged toward providing complete value to the manufacturing process.
Chem-Trend’s Ultra Purge™ brands of purge compounds cover a wide array of process applications, polymers, operating temperatures, and equipment types. They have been specifically developed to address the challenges faced by thermoplastics processors and add significant value to their operations.
