Polyfluo® 200

POLYFLUO 200 is a unique combination of high melt point and crystalline polyethylene and PTFE that has been micronized to a 3.0-4.0 NPIRI grind gauge reading. POLYFLUO 200 can be readily dispersed into printing inks, paints or coatings with normal dispersion equipment. Pre-dispersion or additional grinding is usually not necessary.

POLYFLUO 200 has been formulated to impart the excellent mar and blocking resistance and hardness usually associated with polyethylene, along with the lubricity (slip) provided by PTFE. Each of the components are designed to provide properties for optimum performance when incorporated into printing inks, paints and coatings.

Optimum properties are usually achieved by adding 0.5-2.0% by weight. The amount required will vary depending on the type of application and the end use requirements.

POLYFLUO 200 is recommended for use in the following areas: flexo, gravure, heatset web offset, sheet fed (quick set), ultra violet and metal decorating printing inks; coil coatings, industrial paints or finishes and all types of overprint varnishes and lacquers.

Due to the high melting point and solubility resistance of POLYFLUO 200, it is especially effective in maintaining gloss retention while imparting scratch/mar resistance and lubricity in top lacquers and high gloss coatings.

At temperatures above 600°F, some polymer fumes may be emitted due to decomposition of the PTFE polymer. Therefore, smoking should not be permitted when working with this material.
