3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE Dispersion TF 5050Z is supplied with a pH value of 9 – 11. The dispersion can be mixed with fillers or pigments for use in coating formulations. Dilution is possible at any time but should be carried out with desalinated water.
3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE Dispersion TF 5050Z is mainly used to formulate non-stick coatings for manufacturing cookware and baking tins. The bimodal particle distribution can lead to improved substrate adhesion, less corrosion and a better gloss to top coats. For coating metal surfaces, various techniques such as spray coating, roller coating and silk-screen coating can be employed. The formulations have to be adjusted for each technique.
