Micro Powders, Inc., a global supplier of high-performance wax additives, launches Polyfluo 523AL, a highly engineered HDPE/PTFE composite reinforced with 300 nm aluminum oxide nanoparticles (Mohs hardness 9.0). Polyfluo 523AL dramatically boosts scratch resistance (pencil hardness) in all types of coating systems. This microfine composite gives the formulator the cutting-edge performance of alumina nanopowder in a safe, easier-to-disperse, non-nano additive. The density of Polyfluo 523AL is optimized for maximum surface mobility and minimal settling.
