Fast & Easy Purging with iD Additives’ New Single-dose Purge Compounds: NPE2018

Published on 2018-02-19. Author : SpecialChem

iD Additives, Inc., has announced that it is introducing two new QuickShots purge products at NPE2018. 

Purging Compounds for All Resin Types

QuickShots products are single-dose purge compounds that come in individual packets. These unique compounds allow operators to purge their machinery by simply dropping the packets into the feed throat/hopper of their machine. They work with all resin types on all plastics machinery processes including injection molding, extrusion and blow molding.

The expanded QuickShots product line will include:
  • QuickShots liquid in pouch (the original QuickShots offered by iD Additives) 
  • NEW: QuickShots HD (heavy duty), with glass prills mixed in for extra cleaning strength
  • NEW: QuickShots SP (pellets in a pouch) – including new extra small ½ oz. version, ideal for lab lines and small runs. Alternative to liquid, some processors prefer pellet purge.

Nick Sotos, President of iD Additives, said:
“QuickShots has been extremely popular since we introduced it to the industry in 2017. Based on customer demand and feedback we decided to add these new options to the product line. The QuickShots HD is a heavier-duty purge product for tough applications, and the QuickShots SP is a pellets-in-a-pouch product for processors who prefer pellets over liquid. Also, we are offering the QuickShots SP in an extra small ½ oz. version for lab lines and small processing runs.”

Nick Sotos added:
“There is no simpler way to purge resin from a machine than by using QuickShots™. They not only simplify the purge process, they also reduce costs as you only use the packets you need for each application.”

Key Features

Typical dosage is one ounce per 1” of screw diameter – so a 6” screw diameter would require the use of two 3 ounce QuickShots™. No soaking or temperature adjustments are necessary. Other features and benefits include:
  • FDA Compliant and environmentally safe
  • Works with any resin – no need for multiple grades
  • Reduces the amount of resin required to purge
  • Minimizes process equipment downtime
  • Made in the USA

iD Additives is offering the QuickShots purge compounds in 1 ounce packets (boxes of 50) and 3 ounce packets (boxes of 24).
