PIC PTFE Micropowder
PIC PTFE Micropowder
3M™ Dyneon™ J14 is a micropowder used as a thermoplastic additive to reduce coefficient of friction or impart low surface energy. Also used to thicken or increase visosity of matrix material.
  • Low molecular weight PTFE powder
  • Agglomerate particles
  • Friable (can be broken down into smaller particles)
  • High specific surface area
  • Broad chemical resistance and temperature range of use
  • Non-stick properites
  • Extended service life

Overview

3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE Micropowders can be used as additives in many applications and at concentrations typically from 5 to 20%. Homogeneous incorporation is the single most important process and application consideration. Due to poor flow properties of the micropowder it is recommended that the micropowder and matrix material both be at a temperature below 30°C (86°F). However, in the case of thermoplastic blends, the micropowder may be incorporated into the melt. Dyneon PTFE Micropowder J14 can be dispersed using a variety of mixing equipment. Depending upon the application, high speed mixers and tumble blenders have been successful for dry blends, while propeller mixers work well for wet mixtures such as solvents and oils. Glass bead mills should be used for relatively high viscosity mixtures and roll mills for very high viscosity applications, such as lubricating greases and oils.
