Cleaners and Hot Melt Purge

Tests have proven that the MasterChem Solutions Hot Melt Purge Compound (Product #R-1744) outperforms competitive products in effectively purging or cleaning hot melt manufacturing vessels. It can remove degrading adhesive, gels and even char buildup from the sides of vessels.

This compound is great for simple equipment cleanup or to change from one adhesive to another. It can be used with:

  • EVA,
  • Polyolefin,
  • Acrylic, and
  • Rubber-based adhesives.

R-1744 Hot Melt Purge Compound is easy to use:

  • Stir product well before using.
  • Drain system of all hot melt adhesive.
  • Add R-1744 to pot and heat to a temperature between 350°F and 400°F.
  • Turn pump on and circulate for one longer or longer if significant char has built up.
  • Drain system completely and discard material; add hot melt adhesive and discard first few minutes of adhesive.

CAUTION: This product is never to be used near an open flame.

These instructions are for cleaning your equipment or changing from one adhesive to another. For more information on Hot Melt Purge Compound, contact Leslie Williams, Sales & Marketing Coordinator, at 800-241-8819 or
