Technical Documents


PTFE Micropowder

SST® products are Shamrock’s PTFE micropowders that are defined by particle size and distribution, molecular weight, crystallinity, surface area, oil adsorption, powder flow, and color. Made primarily from highly controlled recycled PTFE feedstocks, SST® products are used for their ability to provide slip, non-stick, water repellency, texture, release, rub, and abrasion resistance to surfaces.

Product Description:

SST®-2-RC is a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) micropowder, and is produced to be in compliance with EU  regulatory requirements.


SST®-2-RC is developed as a performance additive to enhance surface properties in inks and coatings. It is recommended for use in powder, paste and liquid formulations, including water-based, solvent-based, and UV inks and coatings systems. Addition of 1 – 5% of total formula weight of SST®-2-RC provides excellent lubricity and abrasion resistance. SST®-2-RC is readily mixed into inks and coatings using standard high speed dispersion equipment.
