MasterChem Solutions has worked with its clients to create the optimum purge compounds for use with several materials. These purge compounds have superior performance characteristics for cleaning out hot melt equipment during periodic maintenance. They are also often used between runs when switching to a different material. We have two different materials to match different needs. Both are non-toxic and biodegradable :


This is our standard product used for typical EVA and PVA Hot Melt adhesive cleanup. It is liquid form, ready to use with a 400°F flash point.


This higher temperature purge will perform the same tasks as our R-1744 with the added feature of being formulated for more difficult clean up tasks requiring higher temperature cleaning. It is a slightly gelatin form that requires some scooping into the vessels to be cleaned. It has a 500°F flash point.
