Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE) are polymer mixes made of materials with thermoplastic and elastomeric properties. They offer several advantages, such as material stability, recyclability, outstanding thermal properties, excellent physical range, and long material life. As a result, they are used in myriad products, including household goods, footwear, medical devices, adhesives, and automobile parts.

Shamrock Technologies offers EU regulatory compliant thermoplastic elastomer additives made from natural prime and recycled raw materials. Using recycled PTFE allows us to reduce CO2 emissions without impacting product performance. Our micronized PTFE powders enhance performance properties like wear resistance, surface slip, and anti-drip.

Thermoplastic Elastomer Additives from Shamrock Technologies
We offer several types of thermoplastic elastomer additives, including the following:

  • MicronFLON® S: Made from suspension grade Natural Prime PTFE powders, MicronFLON® S products facilitate lubrication and wear resistance in thermosets, thermoplastics, and elastomers.
  • NanoFLON®: Made from emulsion grade Natural Prime PTFE, NanoFLON® products improve surface lubricity and wear resistance in elastomers, PS, fluorinated polymers, and PP compounds for films. They are offered as agglomerated particles in order to aid with free flow and ease of incorporation.
  • MicroFLON® T: Made from recycled PTFE, MicroFLON® T products are designed to reduce friction and enhance wear properties for thermoplastics, thermosets, and elastomers.
  • MicroFLON® and NanoFLON® for Food Contact: Food grade MicroFLON® and NanoFLON® products, made from Natural Prime grade micronized PTFE, reduce friction and increase anti-wear properties for thermoplastics and elastomers.
