Super Taber 5509 SP5

PTFE and Polyethylene Waxes

Product Description:

Super Taber 5509 SP5 is a combination of polytetrafluoroethylene and selected polyethylene waxes with a large average particle size for use in thick film applications.


Due to its unique combination of complementary waxes, Super Taber 5509 SP5 increases the surface slip of a coating while imparting excellent abrasion resistance. It is especially effective for reducing initial wear and provides excellent resistance to taber abrasion, falling sand abrasion and can slide wear.

Coatings: Thick-film industrial and wood coatings, particularly those with poor slip properties.

Super Taber 5509 SP5 can be easily incorporated into coatings by simple stirring. However, the use of high speed mixing and dispersion equipment will not adversely affect the intercoat adhesion or physical characteristics of the coating. If slip is not required, use Shamrock’s Taber Tiger 5512.
