PTFE for Thermoplastics and Elastomers

Natural Prime PTFE

MicroFLON® S

MicronFLON® S products are made from suspension grade Natural Prime PTFE powders. In thermoplastics, thermosets, and elastomers, MicroFLON® S facilitates lubrication and wear resistance. They may be easily compounded for use in nylon, PC, POM, ABS, PBT, blends, and select grades are suitable for high temperature engineering plastics such as PPS, PEEK, and PEI.

MicroFLON® S powders are suspension grade, Natural Prime PTFE micronized to various particle sizes.

Nano-sized PTFE

NanoFLON®

Shamrock’s NanoFLON® products are made from emulsion grade Natural Prime PTFE. NanoFLON® products are offered as agglomerated particles to aid with free flow and ease of incorporation, with a primary particle size as low as 200 nanometers. They are being compounded into a variety of elastomers, and into PS, fluorinated polymers and PP compounds for films, to improve the surface lubricity and wear resistance.

NanoFLON® Powders are emulsion grade, Natural Prime PTFE microized with various agglomerated particle sizes.

Recycled PTFE

MicroFLON® T

MicroFLON® T powders are based on recycled PTFE that has been sintered and micronized to various particle sizes. These powders are designed for thermoplastics, thermosets, and elastomers to reduce friction and enhance wear properties. They may be used compounds based on nylon, POM, PC, PP, ABS, blends, as well as a variety of elastomers and thermosets.
