The KT/KTL series are PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) micropowders which provide low-friction and wear-resistance.
The KT/KTL series can be used widely, with a range of coating thickness(1 – 100µm), and coatings(glossy or mat), printing inks. Since particle size distributions of our products are narrow, they excel in dispersibility, and can also be used for the clear top coat.

KTL series for Coatings, Printing inks
Fine powder of completely sintered PTFE.
Nearly spherical with edges rounded off. Hard grain(hard to crush).The best for scratch-resistance.
Easy dispersibility for solvents and varnishes with light stirring.
High-density(50wt.%) blending is possible.
Coagulated powder of unsintered PTFE.Can be made smaller with hard dispersion.
Relatively large specific surface area and oil absorption, making it difficult to deposit when dispersed in liquids.
Such unsintered PTFE features as viscosity and fibrillation are suppressed for easy handling.
