Specialty Additives

Exploring to exceed customer expectations often lead us into technical discussions in areas beyond what our primary wax and PTFE micropowders offer.

Questions on problems such as foaming, flow, rheology, pH and water balance of customer specific formulations led us to develop product solutions and chemistries that became the cornerstone of our Specialty Additives line. Among these are our foam fighting CeraFLOW E, CeraTHIX,  pH Buffer,  to name a few. Our mission is to serve customers in our core areas, but our vision takes us beyond that. Come explore with us beyond the obvious.

Texturing Powders for Inks and Coatings

Macro-Powders: Textures Above The Film

Shamrock’s powder processing capability includes “Sieve-Sized” powders having a narrow particle size distribution with average particle sizes from 25-200 microns. These materials provide texturing and tactile effects to coatings. (Click specific particle size to open TDS)
