Purging compound (purging agent) for plastic molding machines
Reduces CO2 emissions to one-fourth. World’s top brand purging compound
ASACLEAN™ significantly reduces switching time, amount of waste, and CO2 emissions. Based on Asahi Kasei's resin compatibilization technology and original compounding technique, it achieves the world's highest level of cleaning performance. Asahi Kasei proposes the optimal removal of resins ranging from general-purpose resins such as PP and ABS to super engineering plastics such as PEEK and PPS. ASACLEAN™ is also suitable for removing our Leona™ (PA66), Xyron™ (m-PPE), TENAC™ (POM), and DELPET™ (PMMA).
QDo you use any GADSL (Global Automotive Declarable Substance List) substance for producing ASACLEAN™?
QDo you use any substance, specified by RoHS Directive, for producing ASACLEAN™?
QCan you issue a parameter sheet specified by the Export Trade Control Order?
However, it falls under Paragraph 16 of Appendix 1 (catch-all control items related to weapons of mass destruction and conventional arms).
Depending on necessity, we will issue a parameter sheet. Please make a formal request to the salesperson.
ASACLEAN™ effectively cleans plastic molding machines used for the production of functional parts or interior/exterior parts, contributing to cost reduction at the sites where plastics are molded.
Compared with the case where molding resin is used for cleaning, the amount of resin used for cleaning can be reduced by 33% to 90% when ASACLEAN™ is used. It also reduces CO2 emissions to about one-fourth.

-Penetrates into dirt and scrapes it off-
By fully utilizing Asahi Kasei’s resin compatibilization technology represented by polymer characteristics, compatibilizers, etc., we design ASACLEAN™ which excels in compatibility with various types of resins. This compatibility makes ASACLEAN™ penetrate into dirt and allows for easy removal of dirt. In addition, our original advanced compounding technique enables excellent detergency for scraping off dirt.
Low residual properties
Thanks to the polymer properties of the base material and to our original compounding technique as well as production technology, ASACLEAN™ achieves low adhesion to metal. This means that ASACLEAN™ has a property that allows ASACLEAN™ to be easily discharged. The property reduces the risk that ASACLEAN™ will remain in the molding machine.
Like general molding compounds, ASACLEAN™ is a pellet-shaped material. Therefore, users can handle ASACLEAN™ in the same way.as handling general molding compounds. While designing ASACLEAN™, we gave full consideration to its properties such as safety, non-reactivity, and corrosion resistance. ASACLEAN™ has general-purpose properties; one grade of ASACLEAN™ can be used for multiple types of resins.
Contribution to the environment
ASACLEAN™ significantly reduces switching time, amount of waste, and CO2 emissions when it used for switching plastics production.
As of August 2020, ASACLEAN™ has been used in more than 75 countries and regions.
We also have an overseas sales system. Therefore, please feel free to contact us for the use of ASACLEAN™ outside Japan.
Asahi Kasei's modified SSBR is used as a base material for silica compound tires in order to achieve both high driving performance (gripping performance, maneuverability, etc.) and sustainability (pursuing fuel efficiency and extending product life by improving wear resistance).
Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SSBR)
Our unique nanocomposite materials are composites of highly heat-resistant cellulose nanofiber (CNF) and various polyamide resins. The materials excel in rigidity, dimensional stability, as well as sliding properties, and are expected to be applied to various sliding parts. They also contribute to reducing the environmental impact of parts since they utilize biomaterials, have high mechanical recyclability, and reduce the weight of parts.
CNF Nanocomposite Materials
Polyamide 66-based powder under development for Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) 3D printers. It's high plasticity and heat resistance contributes to significant design freedom by materializing unprecedented shapes.

Leona™ Powder for PBF
Thermylene™ is a high strength, high stiffness, high performance chemically bonded polypropylene compound.
DURANATE™, an HDI-based polyisocyanate, is a curing agent for urethane coating. Urethane coatings hardened with DURANATE™ have not only high weatherability, but also excellent mechanical and chemical properties. In addition, our unique technologies--low viscosity and low-temperature curability--contribute to reducing VOCs and CO2, thereby contributing to reducing environmental burden.
High-weatherability crosslinker for 1K/2K Polyurethane coatings and resins
These are additives suitable for improving key properties such as flexibility, abrasion resistance, soft-touch feeling, etc., which are required for automotive interior parts.
Hydrogenated styrenic thermoplastic elastomer
LEONA™ is highly strong and has excellent heat resistance. In addition, LEONA™ excels in rubber adhesiveness. LEONA™ is used as an industrial material. It is mainly used for automotive products.
MEF™ stands for "Moldable PolyEthylene Foam" Being inherently light and flexible, PE foam offers exceptional shock absorption and durability. As it is molded by steam chest molding, it can be formed into different shapes and sizes easily, and is suitable for automotive parts (especially for car interiors). It is also suitable for returnable packaging in shipping of automotive parts.
In addition to having excellent polarization properties in a wide wavelength range, this polarizing film is characterized by both easy workability (easy lamintation, bending, profile cut, etc.) and excellent heat resistance stability.
Optical film (polarizing film)
Integrated processing using multiple materials such as spunbonded non-woven fabric, knee panfelt, and woven fabric is possible. Shape cutting, punching, sewing, etc. are possible according to the needs of each airbag manufacturer.
Airbag packaging material
LASTAN® has higher flame retardancy than most other organic non-woven fabrics. Even in case of fire, LASTAN® does not easily burn and blocks heat as well as flames due to various post-processing methods applied to it. With its soft and supple texture, it is highly regarded as an optimal material that meets the needs related to disaster prevention, safety, and industrial materials.
