FluoroSLIP® 543-RC

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.


FluoroSLIP® 543-RC is a blend of synthetic wax and PTFE and is produced to be in compliance with REACH regulatory requirements.


FluoroSLIP® 543-RC is developed as a performance additive to enhance surface properties in inks and coatings. It is recommended for use in paste and liquid formulations, including water-based, solvent-based, and UV inks and coatings systems. Addition of 1 – 5% of total formula weight of FluoroSLIP® 543-RC provides excellent lubricity and abrasion resistance. FluoroSLIP® 543-RC is readily mixed into ink and coating formulations using standard high speed dispersion equipment.
