NanoFLON® Series

Sub-Micron Polytetrafluoroethylene Powder

Shamrock’s NanoFLON® Series consists of nano-sized PTFE powder. NanoFLON® makes it easier to add key fluoropolymer properties to your product, including slip, abrasion resistance and release. The ultra-fine powders are engineered using our own proprietary process that allows easy dispersion and primary particle sizes as small as 200 nanometers.

Product Description

NanoFLON® Series powders are virgin PTFE micropowder with various agglomerated particle sizes.


NanoFLON® Series Powders are designed for thermoplastics and elastomers to reduce friction and enhance anti-wear properties. NanoFLON® Powders can be dispersed into submicron primary particle size.
NanoFLON® Series Powders can be compounded into polyesters, polyamides, polyacetals, polystyrene, polycarbonate, and other engineering plastics. NanoFLON® is also effective in elastomers and blends of various engineering plastics
