Synopsis

For coating and ink applications, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) in the form of micronized powders have been used for many years to impart a number of advantageous characteristics, including exceptional chemical resistance, low coefficient of friction, good resistance to heat and low temperature, and enhanced surface durability. In this paper, we introduce new technology that serves as a viable alternative to PTFE. These PTFE-free formulations deliver similar properties to PTFE-containing formulations. These new additives lead to significantly improved mechanical resistance and a significantly low COF and are therefore excellently suited as functional replacements for PTFE-based additives.
