Medical Purging Compounds

Medical components involve some of the tightest specifications in the plastics industry, with high degrees of accuracy, reliability and safety. The slightest product inconsistency can have major repercussions. That’s why molders producing everything from pill bottles to crash carts have trusted Purgex’s™ ability to thoroughly clean a machine and leave no residue in its wake.

Purgex™ Features for Medical:medical purging compounds

Safe

All of Purgex’s ingredients in each purging compound grade are Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the U.S. FDA. This eliminates safety concerns for your customers or employees on the plant floor. Purgex is also safe for your machines and Hot Runner System as well. Purgex is strictly tested to ensure it can safely pass through any gate .030″ (.75mm) or larger and still provide the industry-leading performance you need.

Easily Removed

Purgex Purging Compounds not only clean your extrusion, injection, or blow molding  machine, but importantly, are easily removed without leaving residue behind. Purgex’s research and development team keep focus on our simple rule of thumb: “easy in, easy out”. Our goal is to make the time between runs as short as possible, and that includes ensuring that no Purgex left in your machine.   With such high standards for product purity in the medical industry, the only thing you have to worry about Purgex leaving behind is a spotless machine ready for production.

No Haze

Clear parts are some of the most painstaking items to produce. Black specks, color streaks, and materials molded long ago can unexpectedly appear in clear parts. These unwanted contaminants can add hours to an otherwise simple changeover. To add another layer of complexity in producing quality clear parts, an after-purge haze can occur when purging with some resins or purging compounds. With this range of problems in mind, we have developed a specific grade of Purgex to resolve these challenging issues.
