In addition to showcasing developments in its range of Purgex purging compounds for plastics processors, Neutrex Inc. (Houston, TX) invites NPE2018 attendees to free educational seminars devoted to injection molding and extrusion at booth S20035. The seminars will be presented by plastics processing experts John Bozzelli (injection molding) and Allan Griff (extrusion).
Bozzelli provides expertise in resin characterization and analysis and his specialty is practical, hands-on injection molding training, medical validation and infrared thermography. He is known for his contagious passion and presents practical techniques that help processors improve productivity and boost profits. Bozzelli’s presentations—How to Minimize Black Specks, How to Set Barrel Temperatures and How Plastics Melt—will be held at 10 AM on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.
Consulting technical engineer and PlasticsToday columnist Allan Griff will present The Ten (11) Key Principles of Extrusion on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 2 PM and Plastics Chemistry for Non-Chemists on Tuesday at 2 PM and Thursday at 10 AM. Author of the Plastics Extrusion Operating Manual, Griff is known through his seminars, in-house training and webinars as an intuitive problem solver. Attendees will have the opportunity for one-on-one sessions with Griff during the show.
Neutrex will discuss the latest in Purgex purging compounds, which speed up color changes, eliminate contamination, reduce rejects and decrease downtime. The compounds are engineered to efficiently clean the barrel, screw, check ring, nozzle and hot runner systems in injection molding equipment and to effectively clean extrusion, blowmolding, and film and sheet equipment.
Neutrex performs on-site R&D lab testing and in-plant trials on every specialized product in its line of commercial purging compounds. Purgex grades are comprised of active ingredients with a resin carrier and are engineered to clean thoroughly and quickly to maximize color/resin change turnaround and reduce scrap. Most grades are designed for versatility and are effective on a broad range of resins and multiple production methods for applications ranging from large automotive instrument panels to small medical components.
