Low M.W. PTFE Micropowder TL-160


Description:particle size (electron microscope)

TL-160 is low molecular weight PTFE micropowder. Its particles are with ideal spherical shape and narrow size distribution.Compared to other ordinary PTFE micropowders,  TL-160 has superior properties of excellent dispersing performance,  large specific surface area, low bulk density, high oil absorption, and low viscosity of its composites with solvents.


TL-160 is a solid lubricant, usually used as an additive to other materials.  Added into plastics or rubbers at 3% - 20%, it can reduce friction cofficient and improve abrasion resistance of the products ; other host materials, such as inks, greases, lubricant oils or coatings, can also benefit from the additive of TL-160 at  0.25% - 10% with lower friction, higher service temperature and prolonged service life. It can also be used for static spray coating as an additive to some organic solvents.

Note: Because of its inherent characteristics, TL-160 is not for molding or extrusion applications. Other brands of PTFE Powders of Chenguang are available for customers' choice for those applications.
