Thermoset Application

MicroFLON® T

Shamrock micronized PTFE powders are used to provide performance properties such as wear resistance and surface slip. They also contribute to release from mold in thermosets without affecting shrinkage, as well as improving abrasion resistance and ease of cleaning. These free flowing powders are normally pre-mixed into master-batches or compounds in the resin of choice at levels from 20-40% by weight, to facilitate uniform distribution and performance in the final part.
