Purgex™ 742

for Automotive Interior Applications

Product Information

Purgex™ 742 Commercial Purging Compound is engineered specifically for polypropylene copolymer applications. Like its predecessors, Purgex™ 742 has non-toxic, non-abrasive active ingredients with a polyethylene carrier. This product provides dual-cleaning action with a mechanical component and a unique active ingredient. Purgex™ 742 is a ready-to-use blend which effectively removes contamination from the screw, barrel and hot runner system. Purgex™ 742 is designed to reduce the standard amount of purging compound used, to significantly reduce purge time, and to minimize scrap. All active ingredients in Purgex™ 742 are Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the US FDA.
