Purging compound (purging agent) for plastic molding machines

ASACLEAN™️

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™?

A We do not intentionally use the 250 GADSL (revised in Feb. 1, 2020) substances as raw materials for the production of any grade of ASACLEAN™.

QDo you use any substance, specified by RoHS Directive, for producing ASACLEAN™?

A We do not intentionally use the 10 substances of RoHS Directive as raw materials for the production of any grade of ASACLEAN™.

QCan you issue a parameter sheet specified by the Export Trade Control Order?

A ASACLEAN™ does not fall under any of Paragraphs 1 through 15 (list-regulated items) of Appendix 1 and under Appendix 2 of 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.

Feature01

Excellent detergency
-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.

Feature02

Low residual properties
-Easily discharged-

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.

Feature03

Usability

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.





Adoption

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.
