FLUO 850TX is a micronized high quality polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) which has been developed for use in applications where uniform texture (structure), heat resistance, and lubricity are required. FLUO 850TX is micronized and post blended to ensure batch uniformity. The particle distribution is carefully controlled using Laser Diffraction Analysis in order to produce a consistent texturing effect.FLUO 850TX is produced from ultra high molecular weight virgin PTFE in order to provide optimum purity, color stability and to produce an efficient and consistent texture in powder coatings.
FLUO 850TX is recommended for use in all types of powder coatings. The amount of addition will depend on the texture required. Usually 0.5 - 1.5%* addition levels will produce a uniform textured surface.
FLUO 850TX is generally added into the pre-mix in powder coatings. Optimum mixing can be achieved with a dry blend in a part of the binder before extrusion.
