3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE Micropowder TF 9201Z

3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE Micropowder TF 9201Z is a non-degraded, low molecular weight virgin PTFE suitable for use in food contact applications. TF 9201Z is used as an additive to improve non-stick properties, to reduce the coefficient of friction and to increase wear resistance of matrix materials.

Distinctive features of TF 9201Z include:

  • agglomerated particles
  • easily deagglomerated when incorporated into other matrixes
  • FDA compliant up to 20 percent by weight in polymer formulations

3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE Micropowder TF 9201Z can be used as an additive in polymer applications at concentrations typically from 5 to 20 percent.


Plastics that can benefit from improved lubricity and reduced friction and wear include polyacetals, polyamides, polycarbonates, polyesters, polyimides, polysulphides and polysulphones. Elastomers that can benefit include fluoroelastomers, neoprenes, nitriles and silicones.


Homogeneous incorporation is the single most important process and application consideration. Because of its small particle size coupled with good free-flowing properties, TF 9201Z exhibits very good metering behaviour and can be easily incorporated into materials – even in dry blends. For optimum handling it is recommended that the micropowder and matrix material both be at a temperature below 30 °C (86 °F). In the case of thermoplastic blends, however, the micropowder may be metered directly into the melt. High speed mixers and tumble mixers have proven 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.
