PTFE/Wax Micropowders for Inks and Coatings

Powder-In-Powder Dispersions

Since our discovery that PTFE increases the level of rub and abrasion resistance that wax cannot provide alone, we have developed various combinations of these materials. Our FluoroSLIP® products are powder-in-powder dispersions controlled for dispersibility in liquids by typical draw down methods.
