FluoroSLIP® 605

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® 605 is a combination of spherical synthetic wax and PTFE.


FluoroSLIP® 605 can be used in both the ink and coatings industries. FluoroSLIP® 605 is recommended for offset inks and water-based, solvent-based and UV systems at 1-3% of the total formulation weight. It is also used in powder coatings.
