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.
