TetraMax UV 50G economy PTFE energy curable wax compound

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

TetraMax™ UV 50G is 50% non-virgin grey PTFE in a Acrylic Resin/Triacrylate monomer-based vehicle. Thus, it is not recommended for making pastels, opaque whites,  tints & water-white ink films. It is recommended for use in all process colors and colors darker than light yellow.


TetraMax™ UV 50 G has virtually no VOC's. TetraMax is intended to be used in sparing amounts (2-4%) with 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.
