Thermoplastics

Shamrock recommends the use of PTFE to provide performance properties such as wear resistance, slip and anti-dripping.

Shamrock micronized PTFE powders are used to provide performance properties such as wear resistance, surface slip, and anti-drip. 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.

MicroFLON® S-Series

MicronFLON® S products are made from suspension grade Natural Prime PTFE powders. In thermoplastics, thermosets, and elastomers, MicroFLON® S facilitates lubrication and wear resistance. They may be easily compounded for use in nylon, PC, POM, ABS, PBT, blends, and select grades are suitable for high temperature engineering plastics such as PPS, PEEK, and PEI.

MicroFLON® S powders are prime PTFE micronized to various particle sizes.
