Slide Products PDQ Bottle Liquid Purge Compound

Liquid Purge Saves Time and Money

A liquid purge does not require time to soak, either. Instead, the liquid purge works with the carrier resin to scrub the screw and barrel, removing color and the current resin and readying components for the next color or resin to be introduced.

Consider A Liquid Purge to Save Time and Money

Slide Products PDQ Bottle Wet Purging Compound

Liquid purge?? Why would you put something “wet” into the screw and barrel to purge? Sounds counterintuitive, right? Yet, there are circumstances where a soft-scrub approach to cleaning the screw and barrel makes a lot of sense. Plus, when you think about it, the resin has melted and is “wet” as well. So you really aren’t introducing something wet into a dry medium.

A liquid purge does not require time to soak, either. Instead, the liquid purge works with the carrier resin to scrub the screw and barrel, removing color and the current resin and readying components for the next colorant or resin to be introduced. Many times it is all you really need. It is faster and far more economical than purging with cracked acrylic alone. And it is highly economical when compared to more conventional purges.

It is almost odorless. Heat stable. Non-toxic. And non-flammable. And it can be used for injection molding, plastic extrusion, and blow molding processes.

Facilitating the purging process with a purging compound has been shown to reduce downtime dramatically and get machines ready faster. With the cost-per-hour of machine time gradually increasing, keeping machines productive as long as possible is suitable for your business.

Slide Products makes a liquid purge, P.D.Q., that has proven itself for decades as a highly economical and fast purge. This light-duty purging compound is ideal for color-to-color and resin changes, this light-duty purging compound is available in two ways: First, a self-measuring bottle that “meters out” exactly the amount you need, eliminating waste.

Another form factor offered for the P.D.Q. compound are pre-measured packets you drop directly into the hopper. Just drop, purge and go.

In either form, P.D.Q. takes up little inventory space and is so easy to use that operators can make the best use of the product without training or your supervision.
