Developed as concentrated liquids, CORATEX and CORATEX HT can be used with all types of polymers. Below is an overview about recommended process temperatures and quantity proportions. ILS Engineering have been operating for 14 years, supplying specialised
products and services across all sectors. Our CORATEX range also includes CORATEX HT. The HT version has a pleasant orange odour, and is moreover a very popular option for the manual cleaning of single machine components after strip down.
CORATEX means fast change of raw materials and higher machines exploitation.
CORATEX provides you low process cost and easy handling.
CORATEX can be used while machines are in service, thus saving time and money.
CORATEX can be mixed with any granulates. You are not necessarily dependent on price increases/volatile pricings of any kind of plastics.
CORATEX removes even stubborn material contamination, colours, and oxidation traces in an optimal manner.
CORATEX reduces your storage and logistic cost. 10 bottles of
CORATEX are less than 13 kg; for the corresponding amont of very expensive granular cleaning products (600 kg) you may face higher storage charges and a considerable investment in working capital.
Please see below the types of plastic, the recommended purging temperatures and the required quantity for the purging mix with CORATEX and CORATEX HT.
PURGES: Barrels and screws, including heads and dies of extruders and nozzles, hotrunner tooling of injection moulding machines, under operating conditions.
ENHANCES: Fast changeover from one raw material and/or from one colour to another.
ELIMINATES: Stubborn contamination and material oxidization traces.
OFFERS: Low cost purging and easy handling.
CORATEX IS: Physiologically safe when used according to directions.
CORATEX IS USED FOR: ABS, CA, PMMA, PA, PC, PET, HDPE, LDPE, PEAK, POM, PP, PS, PSU, PVC, PVDF, SAN, TPU etc.
Check your machine parameters and ensure free access of purge mix into the machine hopper. The hopper should be free of loaders, driers and the like, to allow the purge mix to be fed directly onto the screw.
Set purging temperature according to the specific type of plastic (approx. 10 - 20 % below Purging normal processing temperature, (see chart “Temperatures/Proportions”).
Always shake CORATEX bottle well before use!
Pour 2 to 4 % of CORATEX into the plastic granules and stir or tumble well to obtain the purging mix (see chart “Temperatures/Proportions”). Note: Do not exceed CORATEX proportions as this can result in poor feeding due to slippage.
Check whether set purging temperatures have been reached.
Reduce screw revolutions by approx. 50 %, if possible.
Run the prepared purging mix through the plastics processing machine and through the connected nozzles or tooling, if left on the machine. (Quantity: see chart “Quantity required of purging mix”)
While purging, correct the temperature along the screw, if necessary, to ensure that the purge emerges with minor scale like effect.
Follow up, after the purging mix has gone through, with pure plastic granules of the type required by the production to follow. (Quantity: see chart “Quantity required of purging mix”)
If required repeat steps 2-5 once more. In the event that the anticipated result is not achieved, a strip-down of screw, head and nozzle parts combined with manual cleaning
Check for and remove any remaining coated granules in the feed section and change over to normal production temperatures before commencement of the next production run of the machine.
