Polar Purge Flushes Hot Melt Systems of Char, Decreasing Downtime and Maintenance Costs

Polar Purge prevents downtime and keeps production levels high by flushing out char and other contaminants from the system.

RS Adhesives, a leading manufacturer of industrial adhesives, introduces Polar Purge, a hot melt purge compound designed for thorough cleaning of hot melt systems.

Over time, prolonged heating causes adhesives to oxidize and create char. Char can cause blocking and misfiring of nozzles, changes in viscosity, and negatively affect overall adhesive performance. Polar Purge combats these problems by cleaning the hot melt system of unwanted char and gel formation, and preventing clogged nozzles and premature equipment failure.

“Routine maintenance of hot melt equipment is essential for optimal performance,” said Devin Reed, technical analyst at RS Adhesives. “Polar Purge prevents downtime and keeps production levels high by flushing out char and other contaminants from the system.”

The impact of preventative maintenance with Polar Purge doesn’t end with the production line. It also prevents pop-opens and char that may appear on products after they have left the plant.

Polar Purge is a safe and environmentally-friendly solution that is easy to use and melts just like a hot melt in the system’s tank.

RS Adhesives is a division of RS Industrial, Inc. that offers several product lines that include hot melts, water-based adhesives, PSAs, tapes, cyanoacrylates and maintenance products.
