Mold Release Agent For Plastics

The thermoplastics field demands accuracy, effectiveness, and reliability. Chem-Trend supports clients in various thermoplastics processes, such as injection molding, rotational, and extrusion molding, and develops purging compounds and mold release agents for plastic to aid the global thermoplastics industry.

Our close collaboration with the industry and our customers has led us to create cutting-edge solutions that can overcome the challenges in thermoplastics processing. Our portfolio encompasses a wide spectrum of products that deliver enhanced quality and productivity while upholding our commitment to environmental preservation, contributing to the overall growth and profitability of our clients.

The Lusin® mold release agent for plastic and Ultra Purge™ plastic purging compounds provide dependable and efficient solutions for thermoplastic molding.

High-Value Plastic Purging Compound

As colors and materials change during the production process, a natural build-up of residue occurs. For manufacturers who use traditional methods for cleaning their thermoplastic molding equipment, this often results in frustrating production issues. These issues impact various applications like injection molding, extrusion, blown film, and extrusion blow molding. The end results show themselves as streaks, spots, and discoloration on the finished parts, causing an unsettling production process. Consequently, this could lead to increased scrap rates, more downtime, and a decline in the overall quality of the final products – all of which should be diligently avoided.

To avoid these mishaps, we have created effective release agents and purging compounds for plastic. We prioritize delivering:

The benefits of transitioning to a high-performance purging compound are evident. Chem-Trend’s advanced plastic purging compounds undergo rigorous testing and have the support of global R&D resources. This guarantees a constant level of high performance and quality.

than traditional solutions in color and material changeovers


Cost Efficiency

Cost-effectiveness is a crucial factor in your operation. The amount of material and time needed to clear the machine from color and polymer deterioration is decreased by using a high-quality purge compound for plastic. The results of this will be increased production reliability and financial gain in the long term.

Ease of Transitioning

Advanced purging compounds play a crucial role in achieving smooth transitions between incompatible polymers and those with significantly different processing temperatures. Furthermore, they provide an effective solution to contamination concerns when switching to clear or transparent polymers and changing colors, making them an essential component for hot runner molds and injection molding applications.
