Shutdown Compounds are designed to be used as the last step in a purge before an extended period of downtime. The use of a shutdown compound on Friday evening will hasten startup on Monday morning. When used properly, the carbonized particles and black specs often seen on startup will be significantly reduced or eliminated. Less startup time and resin are consumed when the final purge is completed with a Shutdown Compound.
