SYNFLUO 172XF is a unique combination of micronized synthetic wax and PTFE.

SYNFLUO 172XF has been formulated to impart a combination of optimum abrasion resistance and hardness usually associated with synthetic wax along with the lubricity (slip) provided by PTFE. Each of the components are designed to provide properties for maximum performance when incorporated into printing inks, industrial paints and coatings.

SYNFLUO 172XF can be easily dispersed into all ink and coating formulations by means of standard mixing equipment. The particle size distribution is carefully controlled using microtrac laser diffraction analysis. Optimum properties are usually achieved by adding 0.2 - 2.0% by weight. The amount required will vary depending on the application and end use requirements.

SYNFLUO 172XF is recommended for use in the following areas: Wood finishes, radiation cured coatings, UV & EB curing printing inks; can coatings, coil coatings, industrial paints, powder coatings and all types of clear lacquers.
