Released by Micro Powders, Inc.

July 29, 2013

MICROSPERSION 411 is a unique dispersion of micronized polyethylene wax and PTFE which has been dispersed at 25% into an acrylic vehicle. No dispersants have been used in order to provide a trouble free, pourable wax dispersion. MICROSPERSION 411 allows the formulator to use highly efficient micronized waxes in liquid form.

MICROSPERSION 411 has been formulated as a high performance additive for maximum lubricity and gloss retention when incorporated into aqueous systems. The combination of PE/PTFE is designed for increased heat resistance and slip at minimum load levels. The unique properties of MICROSPERSION 411 eliminates the problem of "flotation" or "defoamer kickout" which is common when using other types of waxes.

Additions of 2.0 - 6.0% (by weight) of MICROSPERSION 411 will provide optimum performance.

MICROSPERSION 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; aqueous coatings for two piece cans and folding cartons.
