New Dyna-Purge 3D Clean purging compound is designed to purge all resins used in 3D printing. It is easy to use before or after printing a part, for color changes, resins changes, especially composite materials (i.e. glass filled nylons), and for preventative machine maintenance. The product delivers ease of use through its innovative cleaning formulation and wider processing temperature range, from 320° F to 575°F (160°C to 320°C).

Available in 8 inch long strands (1.75mm and/or 2.85mm diameter) and packaged in a clear cylinder, Dyna-Purge 3D Clean is simple to use. It is safe and non-hazardous, with no chemical additives, and the ingredients are FDA compliant.

“We are very excited to be teaming-up with a leading supplier like Dyna-Purge” states Jake Clark, CEO of 3Dom USA. “As a full service distributor, we recognize that proper machine maintenance plays a critical role in the longevity of a 3D printer. Purging on a regular basis is a cost effective method for cleaning and preserving your machine. For 35 years, Dyna-Purge has been a trusted name in commercial purging compounds so, we are excited to be offering Dyna-Purge 3D Clean to our customers.”

About Dyna-Purge

Since one among the pioneering commercial purging compounds over 30 years ago, Dyna-Purge continues to deliver on its commitment to offer the best value in high-performance purging products with customer support that is second to none. Its unique products have a natural flow throughout the barrel of the injection molding and extrusion equipment. Dyna-Purge softens, but never completely melts. These thermoplastic compounds loosen carbonized and degraded resin, as well as color, flushing away impurities.
