Herolub FMA Fluorinated Micro-powder Additives

Heroflon produces special PTFE micro-powders with different particle size used in various market fields like additives for thermoplastics, coatings, printing inks and lubricants. Herolub products are added into various matrix materials to reduce surface friction and wear. In thermoplastic compounds they reduce or avoid the need for lubrication of the finished components, both injection molded or extruded. Extrusion rate and quality can be improved increasing out-put rate, avoiding marking or surface defects and sagging, to improve scratch and chemical resistance and minimize water uptake. They can replace Graphite and Molybdenum Disulphide (MoS2), thus avoiding soiling additives. They are easily mixed on-site because they do not lump or agglomerate. In Flame Retardant formulations they can avoid dripping even at very low percentages to fulfil UL94 V-0 requirements.

 

MAIN PROPERTIES OF PTFE:

 

  • Achieves or improved self-lubrication
  • Reduction of the coefficient friction and abrasion
  • Improved resistance to chemical agents
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Non-stick behaviour
  • Resistance to high temperatures
  • Does not change the colour of the polymer blend

 

APPLICATIONS:

 

  • Thermoplastics, Thermosetting and Elastomers
  • Lubricants
  • Printing Inks
  • Coating & Waxes

 

TWO MAIN HEROLUB FAMILIES:

La scelta tra queste due tipologie di micro-polveri Herolub deve essere fatta considerando quali tra i requisiti a seguire risultano essere più importanti rispetto all’applicazione finale

 

GRANULAR

 

  • The type of the host resin system
  • Mechanical and Tribological properties
  • Flowability
  • Thickening effect
  • Wall thickness

FINE POWDERS or PASTE

  • Optical requisites
  • Food contact compliancy
  • Flame retardant ratings
  • Viscosity
