FluoroSLIP® 533

Synthetic Wax/PTFE Blend

In 1975, Shamrock discovered that the combination of PTFE and wax provided slip and rub/abrasion resistance that neither could do alone. FluoroSLIP® products are formulated on this principle.

Product Description

FluoroSLIP® 533 is a blend of hydrophilic synthetic wax and PTFE where the synthetic wax shows a uniform melting range peaking at 97°C.


FluoroSLIP® 533 can be used in both the ink and coating industry. FluoroSLIP® 533 is recommended for  water-based, solvent-based and UV systems at 1-3% of the total formulation weight.
