Water-based pigment remover for the color plastics industry

When producing color masterbatches in the plastics industry, avoiding contamination is crucial. When cleaning your equipment for maintenance or before changing color batches, your machine components need to be free of any residue pigments or contaminants. Preferably using a non-hazardous, ecological product. Pigment remover TP132B® does the job.

Effective equipment cleaning

Whether you produce masterbatches of, for example, ABS, PC, or PA, your high-standard products depend on the quality of raw materials as well as the efficiency and quality of the cleaning process between batches.

In the past, cleaning products with solvents were used to macerate previous batch contaminants and pigment residue from the mixers. Due to the risk of inflammation and health-related issues, hazardous chemicals are no longer permitted.

Ecotec’s TP132B® Pigment Remover offers you a cleaning product with the ultimate balance of maximum effectiveness and environmental responsibility. As it is water-based, TP132B® is the ideal pigment industry cleaning method for humans and the environment, in accordance with the OECD 301B biodegradability directive.

Before the batch switch, spraying a coat of TP132B® in the mixer, letting it soak for a few minutes, and rinsing your machine is all it takes. The residue cleaning liquid can be treated as regular wastewater. Depending on the pigment color, repeating the cleaning procedure may be required. TP132B® is virtually odorless, inflammable and it does not release any fumes.
