FLUO HT-LS is a micronized PTFE (low speckle) which has been developed for use in areas where excellent heat resistance, gloss and slip are required. FLUO HT-LS has been processed to a 1.0 - 1.5 NPIRI grind gauge reading to allow for easy dispersion into printing inks and coatings. Due to its very fine particle size, FLUO HT-LS can either be pre-dispersed into a paste or added directly into most inks and coatings.
FLUO HT-LS will impart low speckle readings and can be readily compounded.
FLUO HT-LS is especially recommended for use in Heat-Set, Quick-Set, IR, UV and Metal Decorating Printing Inks and Overprint Varnishes.
At temperatures above 600°F, some polymer fumes may be emitted due to oxidation of the fluorocarbon polymer. Therefore, smoking should not be permitted when working with this material.
