AQUA POLYFLUO 411 is a unique combination of polyethylene and PTFE which has been modified and specifically processed for easy dispersion into all types of aqueous printing inks, paints and coatings.

AQUA POLYFLUO 411 has been formulated to provide optimum levels of scuff and mar resistance along with excellent slip and mobility. These performance characteristics can be readily achieved using AQUA POLYFLUO 411 as the sole additive which will eliminate the need for several ingredients to achieve the same end result.

AQUA POLYFLUO 411 is cost effective since low levels of addition will exhibit optimum properties and excellent gloss retention. Additions of 0.5-1.5% (by weight) are suggested for optimum performance. However, the level of addition will depend on end use requirements.

AQUA POLYFLUO 411 can be used in all types of printing inks, paints and coatings. However, this product is especially recommended for use in the following areas:

Flexographic (paper or film), packaging gravure (paper or carton) and publication gravure printing inks; water reducible wood finishes, coil coatings, industrial finishes and latex paints; aqueous coatings for two piece cans and offset printed folding overprint varnishes.
