Cleaning Injection Molding Dies



Dear P2Tech,

We are looking for information on environmentally friendly alternative
methods for cleaning plastics injection molding dies, screws, etc. to
remove cured plastic residue.  There is significant concern that
burn-off ovens, fluidized bed cleaning furnaces, and conventional hand
mechanical cleaning followed by hand torch cleaning leads to the
formation of HCl, HBr, HF, dioxin and furan emissions.  Are blasting,
cryogenic, or environmentally friendly solvent cleaning techniques
available?

Thanks in advance,
