Recommended areas of usage are: heat-set offset, quick set, ultra-violet and metal decorating inks, overprint varnishes, as well as, industrial paints such as coil and can coatings.
Optimum properties are usually achieved by adding 1-2% by weight when the POLYFLUO 540XF is used as the sole slip additive. In some cases, more desirable slip properties are achieved by adding the POLYFLUO 540XF in combination with micronized waxes or polyethylenes. When used in combination with the above types, a 2:1 ratio (wax or polyethylene: POLYFLUO 540XF) is recommended. A concentration of 1/2-1% by weight of the POLYFLUO 540XF is recommended when it is used in combination.
At temperatures above 600°F some polymer fumes may be emitted due to decomposition of the fluorocarbon polymer. Therefore smoking should not be permitted when working with this material.
