Blow Molders

Solutions for Blow Molders

Plastics processors have turned to Slide to solve problems since 1953 when our founder, Percy Harms, helped eliminate parts sticking to their molds with our first mold release.

Today, blow molders also count on Slide Products for mold cleaners, mold releases, rust preventives and purging compounds.

Solutions to Your Most Frustrating Problems

Learn how to solve common and disruptive molding problems with Slide productivity solutions for blow molders:

  • Stop parts from sticking in the mold: mold releases ensure parts release properly to maximize productivity, shorten cycle time and extend the use of older molds
  • Thoroughly remove stubborn resin buildup and grease while offline: mold cleaners ensure a strong, powerful, effective clean throughout the mold that quickly evaporates so there is no need to wipe off after cleaning
  • Quickly remove stubborn resin buildup and grease while online: mold cleaners flash off on warm molds so they can remain in production
  • Protect and clean molds: our Mold Polish (a non-aerosol paste) ensures a mirror-like finish without scratches
  • Protect against rust and corrosion: rust preventives ensure your molds are protected for short and long-term storage
  • Safely mold plastic parts for food and medical: NSF registered products are food-grade and recommended for molding medical parts

A Faster Purge

Purging blow molding equipment with a Slide purging compound reduces purging time from hours to minutes while reducing waste.

Mechanical & Chemical Purging

Our general-purpose NPT Purging Compound is ideal for blow molders because it combines chemical and mechanical purging: mechanical for a scrubbing/sweeping action and chemical to break down polymers so they’re more easily flushed out.

NPT reaches all the crevices inside the screw and barrel that require purging, removing all resins and residue dyes from the machinery in less time than other purging compounds.

Food-Grade

Two of our purging compounds are formulated with GRAS (generally recognized as safe) rated ingredients:

  • KLENZ Purging Compound: GRAS rated active ingredients safe for food packaging applications and excellent for use through hot runner systems
  • Purge-Atory: also GRAS rated and recommended for use with gas emitting resins
