FLUO 400SM

A unique emulsion grade PTFE grade consisting of aggregated sub-micron PTFE spheres ideal for thin film coatings and gloss retention


FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • PTFE clusters can be media milled into individual nanospheres less than 200 nm
  • Superior gloss retention
  • Provides lubricity, rub and abrasion resistance and heat resistance
  • High surface area of dispersed particles allow lower dosages
  • Conforms to (EU) 2019/1021 & Stockholm Convention (POP)

COMPOSITION

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)

SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS

Solvent based and energy curable coatings and inks. Industrial coatings (including plastic and metal); printing inks and OPV's (including flexo and gravure); powder coatings; interior and exterior can and container coatings; coil coatings; floor coatings.
