AQUASYNFLUO 176VF is a special grade of micronized synthetic waxes and PTFE which have been formulated for easy dispersion into water based systems. AQUA SYNFLUO 176VF will provide abrasion/scratch resistance as well as lubricity when added to water reducible printing inks, paints or coatings. Each of the components are designed to provide unique properties for maximum surface protection.

AQUASYNFLUO 176VF can be readily incorporated into all ink and coating formulations by means of high speed dispersion equipment. The particle size distribution is carefully controlled using laser diffraction analysis instrumentation.

Optimum performance properties can be achieved by adding 0.5 - 2.0% by weight. The amount required will vary depending upon the application and end use requirements.

AQUASYNFLUO 176VF is recommended for use in the following areas: flexographic, packaging and publication gravure printing inks, water reducible overprint varnishes, can coatings, coil coatings and industrial paints.
