ASACLEAN™ Launches Free Learning Program at University of Akron

Parsippany, New Jersey-based Sun Plastech, Inc., the manufacturer and distributor of ASACLEAN™ purging compound, has launched a program to help students create value once they begin their careers in plastics.

Asaclean University is a complimentary, on-site, educational program designed to teach students about purging compounds and their role in a production environment. The program offers a choice of several customizable lectures designed around different topics. These topics are flexible and can be catered to each program’s specific interests or needs.

In March 2019, Asaclean Project Engineer Jarred Packard visited the National Polymer Innovation Center at the University of Akron to launch the Asaclean University program, which is part of the Center’s “Five-Star Event Friday” series. Students and faculty enjoyed a customized “Purging 101” lecture, a Q&A session, a catered lunch and a live color change demonstration in the center’s state-of-the-art lab.

Randy Marvel, director of the National Polymer Innovation Center commented on the program. “The Asaclean U Purging 101 program provided a great baseline understanding of purging processes and why they are important to industrial applications,” he said. “It was a great learning experience, especially for the students seeking careers in industry after graduation.”
