TetraMax QS 50 PTFE litho wax compound
A 100% solids stir-in compound made of exclusively PTFE resin in long-oil alkyd, TetraMax QS 50 is the ultimate compound for quickset, forms and even heatset inks! It features 50% PTFE resin for maximum surface hardness and slip in an easy to use stir-in compound. As little as 2% of this compound makes a measurable difference in the scuff resistance of an ink. And, it can be used in an amazing variety of offset applications,
especially where there is a need for high solids content.
TetraMax QS 50's fast-setting alkyd vehicle also helps boost film integrity, especially when metallic driers are used in the ink formulation. TetraMax QS 50 is laser-safe. Do not use tetraMax QS 50 or any PTFE-containing compound if you anticipate any lamination of the ink film, especially off-press.
Consult Kerley if you think a UV or EB-cured overcoating will be applied.
