MICROSPERSION® 523AL-50

A nonionic water based dispersion of a highly engineered HDPE/PTFE/alumina nanocomposite for unsurpassed scratch and scuff resistance


FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Convenient, ready-to-use, pourable nonionic wax dispersion
  • Maximum scratch and abrasion resistance with slip and lubricity
  • HDPE/PTFE composite reinforced with 300 nm aluminum oxide nanoparticles (Mohs Hardness 9.0)
  • Easier-to-disperse nanotechnology in a safe, non-nano powder
  • Composite particle density maximizes efficiency and minimizes settling
  • Extra fine particle size provides excellent gloss retention and film clarity
