ECONOCLEAN:- Your purge cleaning compound

Cleaning compound for profile- and tube extrusion

The multitude of colour- and material changes, and the ever shorter production runs caused by Just-In-Time production require an effective and efficient cleaning compound.

Quality demands for extruded products require production without black specks, while the production planning gets overloaded. ECONOCLEAN cleans extruders thoroughly and quickly, and through preventive maintenance you save a considerable amount of time before producing high quality products again. While producing less scrap in the meantime !

Through the unique formulation of ECONOCLEAN it also reaches into the dead corners of the extruder and the screw. Residues of previous production or black specks, caused by burnt material, will be removed from screw, die and cylinder by ECONOCLEAN. Also pigments and certain additives that have a natural tendency to adhere to metal surfaces, will be removed thoroughly.

Even when pulling the screw for inspection, you can reduce the time needed for cleaning considerably by cleaning it first with ECONOCLEAN.

Saving costs
Less downtimeECONOCLEAN works effective, and reduces the need for pulling the screw.
Shorter start-up timeECONOCLEAN removes black specks effectively, making the start-up phase for the next run shorter, causing
Reduced loss of materialthrough shorter start-up periods, and
Less cleaning compoundECONOCLEAN needs only 1½ to 2 times the cylinder contents for an effective cleaning.
ConcentratedECONOCLEAN is available in ready-for-use formulations, but also as a concentrate.
Less scrap
Econoclean has already proven its effectiveness with commonly used materials like HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, EVA, PA, EAA, EMA, PP, PET/PBT, PC, PS, EVOH, TPE, PVC etc.

ECONOCLEAN:- Your purge cleaning compoundECONOCLEAN is a resin that is as easily processable as plastics.
ECONOCLEAN:- Your purge cleaning compoundECONOCLEANis composed of materials that have the GRAS classification (FDA norm for Generally Recognized As Safe).
ECONOCLEAN:- Your purge cleaning compoundECONOCLEAN is odourless, also when processed. No special precautions are required.
  The residue is a plastic with inert minerals, which can be processed as such.
ECONOCLEAN:- Your purge cleaning compoundECONOCLEAN is available in 25 kg quantities, in recyclable carton boxes with a plastic liner.


ECONOCLEAN will foam slightly in the extruder, so it reaches into the dead corners of the extruder and die. Burnt residues are released from screw and cylinder wall through a chemical reaction, and extruded by the purging properties of ECONOCLEAN. ECONOCLEAN also has a polishing (NOT abrasive) effect, which leaves the surfaces inside the extruder clean and smooth.
