Elastomer Application

Shamrock micronized PTFE powders are used to provide performance properties such as wear resistance and surface slip. They also contribute to improving green and tear strength, as well as reducing slip-stick between surfaces. These free flowing powders are normally pre-mixed into master-batches or compounds in the resin of choice at levels from 20-40% by weight, to facilitate uniform distribution and performance in the final part.

NanoFLON® Series

Shamrock's NanoFLON® products are made from emulsion grade virgin PTFE. NanoFLON® products are offered as agglomerated particles to aid with free flow and ease of incorporation, with a primary particle size as low as 200 nanometers. They are being compounded into a variety of elastomers, and into PS, fluorinated polymers and PP compounds for films, to improve the surface lubricity and wear resistance.
