TetraMax UV 50 PTFE energy curable wax compound

TetraMax™ UV 50 compound is a high performance stir-in additive for radiation-curable paste inks.


TetraMax™ UV 50 is 50% virgin PTFE in a Acrylic Resin/Triacrylate monomer-based vehicle.


TetraMax™ UV 50 has virtually no VOC's. TetraMax UV 50 is intended to be used in sparing amounts (2-4%) with energy-curable lithographic inks of all kinds, where surface slipperiness and scuff resistance of the printed ink film need to be maximized. Because of TetraMax's high PTFE content, TetraMax is not recommended when overprinting of any kind will be done later.

Consult Kerley if you think a UV or EB-cured overcoating will be applied.
