MicroFLON® 1437FG

For Food Contact

Product Description:

These PTFE powders are Natural Prime PTFE micronized to various particle sizes and are FDA compliant for applications requiring food contact.


These MicroFLON® Powders are designed for food contact applications. These applications include; food processing, machine parts, and medical devices. These PTFE additives are recommended for thermoplastics and elastomers to reduce friction and enhance anti-wear properties.

These powders can be compounded into polyesters, polyamides, polyacetals, polycarbonate, and other engineering plastics. MicroFLON® are also effective in elastomers and blends of various engineering plastics.

Recommended Level:

10-30% of the Total Formula Weight

Features and Benefits:

Friction Reduction
Enhances Wear Resistance Reduce Noise
Improves Stick-Slip Response Processing Aid
