Resolve to ring in the New Year with less waste and more productivity with the right selection of Slide mold releases, mold cleaners, ejector pin grease, purging compounds and rust preventives.

We all know the pattern. We set our New Year’s resolutions and by February, have all but abandoned them. At Slide, we can’t help you with those last five pounds. But for blow molders, extruders, and injection molders who want to get a great start on their molding productivity in 2021, we have the products and expertise you need to make it happen. 

Here are some resolutions to get you started, along with the tools that will let you keep them long after your gym membership has lapsed.

  1. Purge Efficiently
    Clear your barrels and screws with high-quality purging compound to prevent streaking, eliminate specks, and maximize productivity.
    Are you using too much resin to purge? Or spending too much time offline? How much are your processes really costing you? Our purge calculator is a good place to start.
  2. Protect Your Molds
    When it comes to the condition of your molds, small issues can lead to big problems. Resolve to maintain diligent rust prevention practices that include having the right products for the job.
  3. Keep Ejector Pins Well-Greased
    Proper ejector pin maintenance is an investment in the life of your tools and key to maintaining maximum productivity. Prevent galling, pitting or seizing with a high quality ejector pin grease.
  4. Cut Down on Your Environmental Footprint
    Protect the earth – and your employees – by making the switch to products free of trichloroethylene (TCE), chlorinated solvents and other harmful chemicals. You can also take advantage of our reusable cylinders and aerosol can return program.
  5. Don’t Shortcut Mold Cleaning
    Regularly cleaning your molds minimizes downtime caused by resin buildup, clogged mold vents, and more. Slide’s powerful Resin Remover  was nicknamed “The Stripper” due to its powerful ability to remove buildup, stains, and more.
