RamClean®- Purging Agents That Get The Job Done!

ramclean

Supplied by Polyram Plastic Industries Ltd. RamClean® smart purging agents help reduce downtime and minimise scrap rate, thanks to superior purging efficiency.

Being compatible with almost any processing technology, Ramclean® is non-corrosive, non-abrasive and non-toxic, designed to effectively purge almost any thermoplastic material.

It has a working temperature range of 150°C to 400°C (dependent on grade), and is supplied as a ready-to-use purging compound, making it easy and safe to use and handle.


The Ramclean® product portfolio consists of:

Chemical purge
